    Ban Knives? High School Student Goes On Stabbing Rampage In Pennsylvania School

    Another day another dismal headline of some killing spree and while the American people is becoming almost numb to these dreadful occurrences, this one was different. As Reuters reports, twenty people were injured, at least nine seriously, when a student at a Pittsburgh-area high school went on a stabbing rampage early on Wednesday. We are sure the administration is closely watching the events and considering what actions to take to ensure this does not happen again. The good news, for now, is that no one has died but indications are that these are very serious injuries.


    As Reuters reports, seven students between the ages of 15 and 17 and one adult were admitted to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, with stab wounds.


    "These are all very serious injuries," hospital spokesman Jesse Miller said in a telephone interview.

    The attacks took place in several classrooms and hallways as the school day began at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, county emergency management officials said. The first 911 call was received at 7:13 a.m. EDT.

    Three of the patients admitted were in surgery and all eight were in critical condition, hospital spokesman Miller said.

    He said a ninth patient who had arrived at the hospital was airlifted to another facility.
    The school district posted an emergency message on its website on Wednesday.


    "A critical incident has occurred at the high school," the message said. "All elementary schools are canceled, the middle school and high school students are secure."
    Zak Amsler, a 17-year-old junior at the school, said the attack occurred just before his first class was scheduled to begin.


    "I saw a girl with blood running out of her sleeve," Amsler said as he waited to pick up his younger sister, a student at the nearby middle school. "It was pretty mind-blowing."

    Stevens, the county official, noted that the scene had been contained. "The students that are here are safe," he told reporters.
    It's not just the US though, as CBC reports, 4 people were stabbed in a Toronto office today:


    One man is in custody after Toronto police say at least four people were stabbed at an office building in the northern part of the city today.

    Police said the attack happened just after 9:30 a.m. ET on the fifth floor of an office complex at 4110 Yonge St., near York Mills Avenue.

    Police received multiple 911 calls of an assailant attacking people with a sharp object.

    A man and a woman in their 30s are among the people who were stabbed. The two suffered multiple, serious stab wounds, according to police, and are in critical condition in hospital.

    Two other men whose ages are not known were transported with serious wounds to a trauma centre.
    So what next? Spoons only at lunch? Knives issued only with RFIDs?

    What measures VP Biden, the Chief of Task Force is going to take against knife? Make mandatory all the knifes in a high tech box and put an electronic bracelet to open it from a registred person recorded in a data base linked to the NICS ?

    VP Biden is possibly the stupidest sunuvabitch to hold the title. And that's saying something given a few others that have had it.

    The problems with mass killings aren't attributable to the availability of weapons. Whether you're talking guns, knives, or pencils shaped to look like them... kids were able to get their hands on them easier when I was young. Hell, I wore a hole in my favorite jeans carrying a pocket knife in them when I was in high school, and it wasn't unusual for guys to have guns racks in their vehicle then. Yet there were no campus slaughters.

    Given the variables, a scientific mind would look for a different source as the cause.

    Exactly Rob, and if you take a closer look back in time, you will discover the correlation between SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) and skyrocketing mass murders and criminality, you will see the parallel. Here are a lot of stories from people under SSRI influence: SSRI Stories

    The most shocking thing is that only few people pull the alarm on the very probable causes of these crimes and for whatever reasons, financially, economically or politically, they will wait as much as they can until the policy of the scapegoat on law abiding citizen works and unfortunately some people will swallow the anti 2A propaganda.

    It is all about control and manipulation!

    They fixed the problem with knives quite a while ago. They are already banned in most schools. Can you see how well that worked?

    It will be interesting if we find out that this kid was also taking SSRIs and is a big fan of shoot-em-up video games.

    I think the banned knives in most schools is not the solution to the problem and I think the administration must focus on the origin of the problem and also how the authorities handle the students within the school.

    The origin of all these problems come from studying sociology and anthropology.
