Knife-free zone coming up?

Twenty people have been injured - five with life-threatening wounds - in a stabbing spree Wednesday morning at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.

Murrysville police chief Thomas Seefeld confirmed a 16-year-old male student is in custody, and CBS Pittsburgh later identified the suspect as Alex Hribal. The teen was photographed being driven from the police station to a nearby hospital for medical treatment just before 10:30a.m.

In a morning press conference, Seefeld revealed an assistant principal wrestled the suspect to the ground after he ran through multiple classrooms and hallways brandishing two knives.

Four of the victims were airlifted to hospital and at least three of those are still in critical condition, according to Westmoreland County emergency management and hospital officials

That's what I told my friends yesterday when this news hit the air.

Next they will want to ban all knives like the UK.

He probably could have done more damage with a small 4 pound sledge hammer.
Guess they'll create a hammer-free zone too.
Because weapon-free zones work so well.
