    School attack March 01 2012 "Did you hear about this one on the News?

    2 students stabbed, 1 fatally, at Chicago school, and I never heard a thing about this attack on any national news report. Wonder why? We all know the Ohio school shooting concern was for the kids.

    [SARCASM] Why would the media care? It wasn't gun related. [/SARCASM]

    As if when you're stabbed to death, you are less dead than if you were shot.

    If someone is close up with a knife, that is pretty horrifying and far from trivial to defend against for most people.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Yes, I had heard about that one and there was also a new one today that I heard about where an adult took rifle shots at 2 students while they were in a car watching a game and he also shot at a staff member that went to help the kids. What I heard was he is in custody and nobody was hurt.

    CPS says the school is run by a private company that contracts with the district. It serves about 20 students with behavioral and emotional needs.
    sounds like "EASY" jail for kids

    Just goes to show that if people don't have guns to kill people, they find another way

    No controversy here because knives are not in the high priority agenda yet.

    As sad as it is, in a place like Chicago an event like this is just known as 'Thursday'.

    Only those with the proper training and the $65 dollar license will now be able to carry a knife.

    - Have you seen the NY knife laws? They're not exactly knife friendly either.

    Heck, I live in WV and carry a gun darn near all day every day. They won't let me have a knife that's double edged or over three and a half inches though. I guess they're afraid anything longer will turn me suddenly into a stab-happy maniac.
