An official says four students were believed to be seriously injured at a high school near Pittsburgh, where a student with a knife stabbed or slashed others, injuring as many as 20.
Westmoreland County emergency management spokesman Dan Stevens says not all of the 20 injured were cut by the knife, though most were. Some suffered scrapes and cuts in the mayhem that ensued at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville on Wednesday morning.-

So goes the ‘ban guns’ theory to stop violence at schools.
Damn that National Knife Association!
Was this a multi-knife situation? Was it a machete? Did he buy this from a knife dealer or from some street dealer?
Still unclear as to the motives of the perp or any other description thereof. Might be a nutcase. Might be a ROPer.
But in this place the good. obama knives never hurt anyone... they all vote Obama...
Maybe all knife owners need a bracelet.
In Britan, after the gun ban, they started to go after knives.
Most of my pocket knives are treated as deadly weapons and banned in the UK.
Everyone knows that knives are just a 'gateway' weapon, after all...
It must have been a black, evil looking knife! Oops! That’s raciss!!!/s
I’m waiting for the Knife Control crowd to demand registering all knives.
That doesn't stop their cops from confiscating it or make it easy for people to go through the hassles of trying to get it back once confiscated.
GB is our canary in the coal mine. Oh, how the once mighty have fallen, like dominoes, one by one.
Thank you, God and our FFs, for the second amendment and thank God for those who fight to keep it intact.
Where the MAIK and mom against knives this morning. And where’s fauxbama? Oh, I forgot he’s at Ft. Hood probably calling for background checks. Oh, I forgot again. They did a background check on ivan. Guess we better take the guns out of the hands of normal everyday law abiding citizens. Just in case ya know.
I wonder what kind of knife was it?
My daughter, who doesn’t want to own a gun, has a 2 foot long 3-1/2 pound knife for home defense of the type Gurkas use.
probably too soon, especially considering it was kids who were stabbed, and are in surgery.
I hope it wasn’t a Boy Scout!
No one died in this attack, and no one is expected to die, which does lend support to the gun control side. If the attacker had a gun, the injuries would have been worse.
At least American knife attackers seem to lack the skill seen in China, where Uighur jihadis kill travellers in train stations and madmen kill kindergartners by the score.
(donning flame suit)
Call Kevin Bacon.
Holder to fund research “knife Bracelets” so only the owner of the knife can use it.
AKA Ryan Hardy
Call him so he can go in alone and ignore any calls for back up in which one of 3 things always happens: 1) he shoots and kills the guy, or 2) the guy slips out the back, or 3) he gets wounded. Most the time you can combine #1 or #2.
I have gotten tired of yelling for him to call for back up! But then the show would end because they would’ve had caught Joe middle of the first season.
and combine #2&3..
KNIFE FREE ZONE
What we need are common sense knife laws. Chuckles Schumer, call your office.
An “assault knife” obviously.
Believe it or not, the media will be calling for more gun control. Just watch.
One teacher with a pistol stops this before two kids are injured.
I last heard that 4 students were “critical”. I hope you’re right and they make it OK.
He is just imposing the waiting period for black assault knives with multiple thrust capabilities (over 15 times).
Schools, retirement homes, hotels and hospitals are all gun-free zones, right?
All soft targets, and evildoers are fully aware of them.
I heard 8 had life threatening injuries via radio news...
Was it a high capacity assault knife?
knife had a large capacity magazine?
Again, the leftists in NY vote for socialist/fascists and for some reason are stunned when they are rewarded with no way for people to defend themselves.
Has anyone yet noted the race of the perp?
It was a fully-automatic assault knife!
When knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have knives.
When knives are outlawed.....I’ll be an outlaw!
As a result of this cruel attack in a neighboring state, New York Governor Cuomo “the Homo” has just proposed the Secure Assault Knifes Everywhere (SAKE) Act.
Actually this incident proves NOT that the gun free zone kept a less deadly weapon out, but rather that the GFZ prevented the adults from protecting 20 plus kids from stab wounds.
The key here is that the GFZ made everyone a sitting duck.
So much that one deranged person with a knife was able to do so much damage.
Don’t let the gun controllers spin this.
Their position doesn’t hold up to simple logic.
You forgot military bases.
Fox reporting this kid rampaged for almost an hour before a security guard tackled him. Had two knives. Had someone in authority had a gun, the rampage would have lasted about 8 seconds flat.
Did it have a pistol grip?
the score on the opposite (Constitutional) side of the
“gun control” debate is higher.
does this mean the left will demand congress create new legislation requiring all white people need to show ID before buying a kitchen/chop knife or kitchen knife sets at Wal-Mart?
