Guns not needed for deadly brawl

Chicago Tribune | Kane County brawl leaves 1 man dead. Of course on on the left will want to propose baseball bat or 2-by-4 control.
Nicholas Swanson, 20, was bludgeoned to death during the street fight in the semirural area of north-central Kane County[, Illinois]. More than 50 youths clashed using baseball bats, two-by-fours, crowbars and bottles as weapons, Kane County sheriff's officials said. Several suspects were being interviewed, they said.
While I am not surprised to see this in the Chicago paper, it did happen in Illinois after all, you can bet that this won't show up in the national press the way it would if a gun was involved. If a gun were involved, then no mention would be made of the other weapons, since that would not advance any agenda.

The left keeps trying to attach moral attributes to inanimate objects. "Guns are bad", and so forth, but are guns bad when they stop crimes? When will they start to see that it is the criminal who is responsible for the crime, not the weapon?
