Excerpt:Â A 25-year-old Tokyo man, describing himself as "tired of living," yesterday killed seven and injured 12 more people. He did it without a gun.
He would have killed and injured more, but he was stopped by the mere threat of a policeman's gun.
Japan has among the very strictest gun control laws in the world. And that is precisely why one disturbed young man with a truck and a knife could wreak such carnage in a bustling neighborhood.
