Thank goodness that we have strengthened gun laws

An 18-year-old was arrested Thursday after his mother and two siblings were found dead following a fire in their apartment....Stab wounds were found on the 43-year-old woman, her 15-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter, they said.

The oldest son, who had several knives, was initially arrested on suspicion of violating the Firearm and Sword Control Law but faces murder charges, police said

Story here.

It is amazing what reactions and emotional over-reaction the extremely rare murder by a firearm causes, but the common murder by knife causes barely a blip in the news and nothing from the political class. Do you think Fukuda will comment on this? Let's see.
