Gun Controllers Proved Wrong AGAIN as Student Goes On STABBING Spree

In Murrysville Pennsylvania, a scant 15 miles away from Downtown Pittsburgh a student has been arrested for going on a stabbing spree wherein some 20 students were injured, seven of which have life threatening injuries.

Franklin Regional High School was the scene of the carnage as the unnamed student entered in the building a little after 7am and started running through the halls stabbing people.  Emergency Management Spokesman for Westmoreland County, Dan Stevens, had this to say:

“School was in session and students were arriving for morning classes. It happened in numerous classrooms and the hallways.” 

The suspect, a male student who attends Franklin Regional, is in custody.

Elementary school was cancelled before any students arrived.  The middle and high school’s were placed on lockdown and students were only being released to their parents.

More information about motive and the extent of damage will come with time.

But I want to bring up a few points now.  First, despite what gun controllers would have us believe, getting rid of guns DOES NOT get rid of people going on spree killings.  If they can’t get a gun legally they’ll get one illegally, if they can’t get one illegally they’ll get something else to kill with.

This tragic incident is just another reminder that it is the PERSON not the tool that is to blame when people go on kill frenzies.

Also, while gun controllers (if they even deem to respond to this incident) will say it was a good thing that he didn’t have a gun I actually counter that with saying that at best it is probably a wash.

You see, when a gun goes off in a school, EVERYONE is made aware rather quickly and as such lockdown procedures, fleeing, police being called, campus security getting involved…all this stuff happens QUICKLY.

But listening to Dan Stevens tell it, the unnamed assailant just went room to room and up and down hallways stabbing away without anyone initially knowing what was going on.  A stabbing and the resulting scrum may sound like nothing more than a fight.  People wouldn’t know what was going on and would continue on their day.

In truth, Franklin Regional should be glad that this student seemed to be reckless or else he could of ninja sliced his way to a ridiculous body count.  But still, with 20 injured, 7 of which whose lives are in the balance I think that anyone would be hard pressed to say that it was BETTER that he had a knife than a gun.

The long and short of it, outlawing guns will NOT stop these incidents.  People with malicious intent will just get a knife, or a hammer, or an ax or a sharpened stick and still go on spree killings.  I do wonder though, if a TEACHER had a gun to confront this spree stabber with, would his body count have reached 20?

Of course he wouldn’t…but gun controllers don’t want to hear that either.

    Yes it was a mass stabbing but if he had a gun there would have been a mass casualties…lets be real! There is NO reason we need automatic weapons… I believe in the right to bare arms but there is a line and we have crossed it

      “There is NO reason we need automatic weapons”

      You realize automatic weapons have been heavily regulated since 1934 in the National Firearms Act. And the semi-automatic weapons you dubb “automatic weapons”, are no different than any other firearm except in their operation.

      Also where is your proof that “if he had a gun there would have been a mass casualties”, you do realize that the worst school killing spree in the United States happened with explosives:

      “The Bath School disaster refers to the series of violent attacks perpetrated by Andrew Kehoe on May 18, 1927, in Bath Township, Michigan, that killed 38 elementary school children and six adults in total, and injured at least 58 other people. Kehoe first killed his wife, fire-bombed his farm and set off a major explosion in the Bath Consolidated School, before committing suicide by detonating a final explosion in his truck. It is the deadliest mass murder in a school in United States history.”

      As for your statement of “I believe in the right to bare arms but there is a line and we have crossed it”, you do seem to forget that this was a mass STABBING(unless your contemplating an assault knifes ban). However, if this is an aside to the mass shooting that have occurred as of late I would remind you that they happened in areas where the “right to bare arms” was banned. Thus making the banning of firearms rather moot if banning them in “gun free zones” didn’t stop the killing sprees. In essence, your suggestion would create a nation wide “gun free zone”(similar to UK, Australia, China, etc) where rapists/muggers/robbers/theifs run a muck while civilans cry helplessly to an overtasked police force………who are not liable if you are killed/raped/mugged.

      Take a stand, defend your life. No one else is responible for it but you.

    How does this case prove knives are as effective a murder weapon as guns? NO ONE DIED!
