That's the second good thing I've seen China do (the first being population control).
Regarding the stabbing story though, I read that last week on a Facebook page not too long after the Newtown shooting; it was being used as a case for gun control. I think I can find the picture...
...yep, found it.

Oh please. How exactly are your handguns or ar-15s going to protect you from B-52s, F-22s, tanks etc?
They don't have the right to protect themselves from their government.
Wouldn't doubt it but I'm pretty sure you'll find that America is the most incarcerated country on Earth. Almost a quarter of the world's prisoners are here.
Millions of Chinese people rot in jails with no charges brought against them and no trial.
China may not have all the freedoms that America does but living there isn't like living in jail. Apart from speaking out against the government (in public anyways) you can live a fairly normal life. This isn't the 1970s anymore.
but there is no comparison between these two events without considering the daily suffering of so many Chinese.

yes I corrected.
I think you need to the maths yourself too.
Add them all up (I just quickly used excel) and you get 9.8 million. America at 2.2 million equals 22.4%, which is...wait for it...wait for it...almost a quarter. Yup there I was making up numbers
