I must take exception to a statement in the editorial “Attack at Franklin Regional: More madness”.

The editorial states: “Whether it's a knife or a gun or even box cutters in the hands of maniacs, the intent to harm as many people as possible is not limited by the weapon of choice (or convenience).”

We can parallel Franklin Regional with Sandy Hook in that a gun was used at Sandy Hook and many lives were lost, whereas at Franklin Regional the use of knives limited the carnage to injuries rather than deaths.
