I was watching their local news and 20 have been stabbed, 4 have been airlifted to hospitals.  They have captured the attacker who went around for over 20 minutes doing his work.  They need to declare the school a knife free zone.

  • The income tax: Root of all evil!

Are we now going to have comprehensive knife control?  Perhaps there will be new federal laws that make it illegal to own or possess a knife with a blade longer than three inches, or with a blade that can cut paper, unless one has had a background check, agrees to only possess or use said knife in one's kitchen (and not any other room in the house), and has agreed to wear one of Holder's monitoring bracelets.  Special training will be required of all restaurant/commercial cooks/chefs, who will get thorough vetting from the FBI, have to maintain a license that can be revoked at will for any reason or no reason at all, who will have to wear one of Holder's monitoring bracelets, and who must post bond of at least $1 million.

While the ridiculousness of the idea of banning knives is clear to us, it's not so clear to the average liberal.  A liberal doesn't realize or admit that if a class of objects which can be used as weapons is banned, people will start using another class of objects for their weapons.  Next thing you know they'll be using spoons, or at least suspected of trying to do so.

Google "knifecrime uk" or "knifecrime island" and see some real stupidity.

Police: Pa. student flashed 2 knives, injured 20

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/police-pa-student-flashed-2-knives-injured-20

Quote
MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy "was flashing two knives around" when he injured 19 students and a school police officer who eventually subdued him with the help of an assistant principal at a high school near Pittsburgh on Wednesday, a police chief said.

Murrysville police Chief Thomas Seefeld said the bloody crime scene at Franklin Regional High School, some 15 miles east of Pittsburgh, was "vast" and may take a couple days to process.

Police haven't named the suspect, who was taken into custody and driven from the police station in the back of a cruiser for treatment for a minor hand wound.

Investigators haven't determined a motive, but Seefeld said they're looking into reports of a threatening phone call between the suspect and another student the night before. Seefeld didn't specify whether the suspect reportedly received or made the call.

Too late, Al Sharptongue has already suggested it.
