guns do because people dont knife that much

ANSWER The Report by the 'Australian Institute of Criminology' into the 510 homicides across Australia between July 2008 and June 2010 found that -Guns killed 13% [but was 25% in 1989-90 ] -Knives killed 41% [but was 30% in 1989-90] In other words, despite the media hype and the anti-gun lobby, more than 3 times as many people are killed by knives rather than guns. This disparity is set to increase - just ask the cops. [ Stats From article 'Murders at a low, but knife use on the rise' in the Sydney Morning Herald in Australia]

Disease. They had no immunity to diseases brought to their lands.

The very first knife was likely a sharp bit of rock. Since then we added handles, changed blades to metal, changed metals several times, made folding knives, knives with more than one blade, combined knives with tools (Swiss Army Knives. Leatherman), made knives to go on guns (bayonets) made REALLY big knives (swords) and made electric knives (electric carving knives) Some knives are now made with blades that are ceramic- a form of stone. Hey- this is where we started!

Knives are primarily used for skinning animals rather then hunting them-that tends to be the role guns serve. However-there are a few animals which people uses knives to hunt; one of them being boars. I'm not sure of the details so maybe another can answer in more detail, but from my understanding-they attach the knives to sticks and then corner the boar. Boar hunting is generally done with more then one person I believe. Not sure how knives are used in other hunts besides skinning.

No heart disease (cardiovascular disease) and a multitude of illnesses kill more. Think about it for a minute, cancer, HIV/AIDs, malnutrition in Africa kills a child every 5 seconds which amounts to around 6 million children a year alone in Africa. How about cancer and all its forms?The only time guns may have killed more than disease & illness was perhaps WW2 when an estimated 50 to 70 MILLION people died as in 2.5% of the worlds population back then. The guns that possibly killed the most in that war were the German machine guns - the MG-34 and MG-42. On Omaha beach upon June 6th 1944 D-Day landings a 21 year old German machine gunner killed an estimated 1,000 G.I.'s firing 12,000 rounds of ammunition in the process as the tide caused a lot of landing craft to land directly in front of his well fortified emplacement. The MG42 could fire 25 bullets a second....thats 1,200 to 1,500 bullets a minute. It sure killed a lot of Russian soldiers too. World War 1 years may also have been the only other time in recent centuries where guns and knives/bayonets killed more but I doubt it. Spanish influenza wiped out millions back then also.
