So When Do We Ban Knives? 14 Injured in Mass Stabbing In Houston

So When Do We Ban Knives? 14 Injured in Mass Stabbing In Houston

Every time a tragedy with a gun happens, liberals come out of the woodwork demanding that we ban guns. Of course, that’s just as ridiculous as the idea that we should ban knives after the mass stabbing that has occurred in Houston.

Yesterday, 21 year old Dylan Quick went on a rampage at the Lone Star College-CyFair in Texas. He stabbed 14 people, 12 of whom ended up going to the hospital. Even more bizarrely, many of the victims were stabbed in or around the mouth.

Although in many cases like this, there are few details about motive this early on, that’s not the case here.

According to the local police, who apprehended Quick after he was tackled by a fellow student, he’d had fantasies about stabbing people since his childhood and had extensively planned out his attack. Of course, that brings up an obvious question: Shouldn’t someone who has been fantasizing about doing mass stabbings for years be institutionalized? Maybe that’s a good idea and maybe it’s not, but it seems to at least be a topic that merits a national discussion.

Of course, alternatively, liberals may think that we should bring on the knife control. After all, if we took steak knives away from all law abiding Americans, the crazy people couldn’t use them to hurt people. That at least seems to be their rationale with guns.

Incidentally, as dumb as that argument may be, you could make a BETTER CASE FOR BANNING KNIVES THAN ASSAULT RIFLES. In 2010, 358 Americans were killed with rifles and 373 died via shotguns while 1704 people were stabbed to death.

Does that make you ready to ban knives, as they already have in some European nations? Don’t you want the government to go house-to-house to confiscate everyone’s steak knives? If so, you may be a liberal. But, even most liberals won’t go that far yet. If they can’t even ban your guns, they realize there’s certainly no point in calling for a ban on knives….yet.
