As reported by a multitude of news agencies across the globe, a 16 year old high school student wielding two kitchen knives eviscerated one person and wounded 20 others. How many more of these senseless killings have to occur before we finally accept the fact that we must act now to ban all knives. No one really needs a knife and they are certainly not protected by the Constitution. Some will try and tell you that they need these tools of killing to cut their steak or chicken, others say nonsense. As a human being you have been given the tools for that in the form of incisors, built for ripping and cutting flesh. There is no need for people to have to live in fear of being stabbed to death when they walk out of their home. Congress needs to act now to eliminate access to knives by the general public. Then, and only then can our society be truly safe. /s
