“A man armed with three knives stabbed four people at a downtown office building Wednesday afternoon and was shot by a police officer as he tried to leave, authorities said,” cbsnews.com reports. This senseless tragedy in Columbus, Ohio only serves to illustrate the lax knife control laws in this country. In fact anyone, anyone can waltz into a Target store and, after only a minute or two in the cutlery section, he’s able walk out of the store with God knows how many knives. Really, who needs to buy more than one knife a month? “A knife was recovered inside the school, and two knives were found near the suspect outside after he had been shot (by police).” The building in question houses offices of the state attorney general and is a designated gun free zone. It’s a good thing, too, or someone could have really been hurt.
