Yes, and nuclear material and poison gas can also be obtained if someone or a small group is deter ...
You missed my point, brainiac. I said that just because there are stricter gun control most other places doesn't guarantee that it won't happen other places, such as China, where it hasn't happened yet. That is because these incidents, unfortunately, have the power to inspire and reach sick people globally. So long as there are sick and disturbed people who are warrant to do such a thing everywhere, one should be careful to disregard the possibility entirely.
I hope to God it won't happen, but I think that chances are high that an East Asian country will see this sort of thing happening too in not too long, unfortunately. And then you would be glad if you had minded your words a bit more carefully. It is probably much harder for a commoner in China to acquire a gun compared to any Western country, since it is illegal to own one (most probably), but it doesn't exempt you from the symptom, as the accounts of senseless and tragic kindergarten and preschool attacks in China just proves. Nitpicking, gloating or stacking number of kills up against each other is just tasteless, and show a total lack of compassion and respect for fellow human beings.
The abundance of handguns in America is probably the reason why the phenomenon arose and still happens there the most, and it should be dealt with somehow. I don't know how they could do that though, it's probably not even possible.
