NO! Banning ALL "Assault Style Knives" is the only logical answer! They are only made for killing!
Funny how you never hear that public outcry when some azzhat does something like this. It absolutely sickens me. Prayers sent for the girl and her family.
It's called "gun bias".
Antis can not see or understand our appreciation of firearms so they get to feel good by calling for bans on a product that they could not justify owning themselves...
Knives on the other hand, and pools, and cars, and household cleaners, and fists, and feet.... All items that kill far more people than guns but ALL items that EVERYONE has a use for. Ever notice how they like the term "Legitimate Use".
Missing from that report is the obligatory inventory of the residents...
"As the suspect was taken into custody, a team searched the home of the suspect. 27 knives of varying length and scariness were recovered...with no less than 19 in the kitchen area alone!" "It is obvious to authorities that many more assaults were planned"
If It Were Easy, They Would Not Call It Work, And Everyone Would Do It
