    The problem is lack of security at schools.

    What number is required before a life is significant?

    Do you have info on the claim of knives slower and less deadly?

    That only scratches the surface but, the right people do not have weapons.

    WTF?

    20 people just got stabbed so, obviously, not everyone can outrun a knife.

America's lack of mental health structure simply treating people with pharmaceuticals and sending them home is not working. Mentally stable children from supportive homes do not go around stabbing or shooting others. The implement used is irrelevant - if it wasn't a gun it's a knife (as in this case) and if a knife wasn't available it would be something else like a hammer or a pipe or even a pen or sharp stick like a pencil. Time to shift the discussion away from inanimate objects and get to the source of the problem.

    These people are Alinsky/Emmanuel followers. Not letting a good crisis go to waste, huh fellas?

    They've been crying that there would be no mass incidents like these without guns. Sure enough, someone got creative.
