A few years back there was a story of fully grown college students freezing in terror while a male student stabbed a co-ed to death in the cafeteria, none of them knew what to do or took the initiative to stop him and said they were "afraid". I just can't fathom that kind of response but apparently it is real.

    Knife bans are typically even more complicated than gun laws. In my state there are so many laws, blade length cannot exceed 4" and double sided blades are not legal for concealment, then a lot of non-knife and gun weapons like slap-jacks and brass knuckles are banned. Any time I consider something for street defense I am going to law sites, like a collapsible baton, I am currently trying to figure out the legality of that.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yeah, it's pretty empowering to an attacker when there is no response to their actions, simple logic would dictate that a person will escalate their aggression until some form of force limits them.

    One thing I find interesting is the fact that form what I have read Canada is more liberal on things like knifes and other weapons than most of the U.S., batons and nightsticks are legal here as long as they are open carried, I believe the same goes for bladed weapons longer than 5".

    It is a bit disgusting to watch the Gun-H0 crowd use a tragedy like this to push an agenda....almost sickening.

    It is a wise choice for some to shelter but as a general policy, my opinion is it's bad idea. First responders should be some one already in the immediate area not SWAT who has to mobilize first.

    And it is JUST as disgusting when the anti-gun-H0 crowd uses a similiar tragedy to push their own agenda. Once they stop doing that then I will certainly stop also. Maybe then we can actually address the actual underlying problem.
