Well, well, well, will you look at these Texas Stabbing Spree headlines. Some nutjob in Texas went on a stabbing spree on a collage campus with what witnesses are describing as an X-acto knife. An X-acto knife! Something so small and relatively harmless that we regularly make them available to children at least as young as Junior High School age for use in both Science and Art classes.
No he didn't use the dreaded AR-15 or "standard capacity" magazines, he didn't use a gun of any type. He didn't even use a large scary knife like you might see in a horror movie, he used a puny little X-acto knife.
What ever shall we as a Nation do? We better start by banning all kitchen knives because evil people could gain access to a knife in any kitchen in America! Yes, we need to protect America from the American people.
Or, I guess another option could be to do away with these stupid "gun free zones" and allow good rational people to protect themselves. Kind of like what people did during this stabbing spree. The stabber was taken down by normal everyday citizens who had had enough and decided to defend themselves rather then cower like sheep waiting for someone from the Government to come and protect them. Although 14 people got stabbed with two in critical condition before people got smart enough to act.
I think this incident has a great many lessons to be learned from it.
1. Protect yourself and those around you if you are able. Fight if you can, don't rely on someone else to save you.
2. Evil people will do evil things regardless of what items the protectionist culture wants to ban.
3. Gun free zones and weapon free zones only stop good law abiding people, not crazies, evil people and criminals.
4. These people going on rampages are not unstoppable. They kill them selves, give up or are subdued as soon as they are confronted by "force on Force" violence.
The moral of this story and this article is that bad people will do bad things, no matter what. The only way to stop a bad person is for a good person or group of good people to respond with equal force and violence.
