      Oh becuase he is Hispanic that makes him an illegal? Do you know something the rest of us don’t?

    Uh oh, time to start up the debate on background checks for knife purchases! Or maybe we should just put tighter restrictions on them… maybe a 5-day waiting period for anything sharper than a butter knife? Maybe not… knives don’t hurt people, guns do.

      Hmm good point. I once heard someone died by being impaled by a corn cob that had carelessly been left out in a place where it could do murderous harm. When will we get tighter restrictions on corn?

      What would the result for the woman have been if the person assaulting her had been armed with a handgun? Probably more than scratches on her hands, arms, and face.

    Cars kill not drunk drivers…

      Oh really…

        Yes. There was a study done where they proved the car knows when the driver is intoxicated and then slowly takes over while the driver is not paying attention. The car then takes out all it’s frustrations of being abused by assembly line workers at the plant and goes on a quest to drive up on sidewalks, cross double yellow lines and just cause general chaos while it can. Also, guns also have some of the same genetic metal and alloy genes as the cars and have decided to go against the will of their owners and just do things on their own. The knife used in this incident probably was related to the defective atomic makeup of these same steel and alloys and went on a rampage too. Wow, it’s just a crazy world we live in!
