As much as I'm not a fan of gun control, americans pointing to the Sydney CBD stabbing as evidence against it is pretty silly considering the person was able to be stopped with a CHAIR and a MILK CRATE.
Such a dangerous thing to do, but huge kudos to these guys who put their own lives at risk by using a milk crate and a chair to tackle this guy on a stabbing rampage in Sydney CBD. https://t.co/9wMeLWZ8A3
Police operation King & Clarence St, Sydney CBD. Please avoid the area. More to come...
America: *buys guns at Walmart*
Australia: *steals milk crates from Woolies that can be utilised for vinyl storage/transportation, improvised cafe seating AND weapons of defence for those times when some cunt goes on an afternoon stabbing spree in Sydney CBD* https://t.co/0KmWZJA6kV
Congratulations to those ordinary folks who acted swiftly and successfully detained that man in the Sydney CBD.
