Another to exploit

In light of the knife attacks on the campus of Lone Star Community College (“Student held in knife attacks,” April 10 and TribLIVE.com), I wonder if the warm and fuzzy liberal do-gooders will exploit the tragedy.

Will they call for background checks to purchase a knife? Limit the length of the blade? Prohibit knives with black polymer handles (everyone knows those are evil)? Ban knives that are simply visually similar to a knife the military uses (because everyone really knows those are evil)? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I wonder how many of the 14 injuries could have been prevented if just one of the students I'm sure was licensed to carry a concealed weapon would have been allowed to have a weapon on campus.
