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.

Was this a multi-knife situation? Was it a machete? Did he buy this from a knife dealer or from some street dealer?

FWIW, Murrysville is one of the nicer 'burbs of Pittsburgh.

Still unclear as to the motives of the perp or any other description thereof. Might be a nutcase. Might be a ROPer.

There is now a little updated information from our local fishwrap. We now know the suspect was male and is now in custody.

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.

Sounds like a great excuse to once again roll out the 'Ban Assault Weapons' parade.

Everyone knows that knives are just a 'gateway' weapon, after all...

Spyderco makes their UK Penknife in response to, and to be in compliance with, GB's laws, as well as to be in compliance with similar laws in other European countries.

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.

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.

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.

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.

That is so cynical

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.

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.

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.

Not true. It took minutes before the student was taken down by a student, principal and LEO.

This was the beginning of school when the halls are chaotic. The young man brought two large kitchen knives from home and rampaged. The incident took place on the first floor in the science wing.

Writing from Murrysville.
