    A dangerous situation that could have been a lot worse. Question – should knives be considered dangerous weapons, that need to be removed from citizens & should tougher knife laws be put in place as more and more knife attacks are happening?

    Where's the liberal media's typical fear mongering off the blood of the victims? Why are the criminals Eric Holder & Obama (Waco TX that killed 76 – including 26 children presumed innocent, but murdered at the hands of govt agencies, as well as Operation Fast & Furious gun running scandal that they are complicit in the murder of US Border Patrol Agent Bryan Terry as well as how many other US & Mexican citizens) not shouting for banning all knives? What doesn't that fit their agenda?
