1. If that person had an assault rifle that would be 12 to 14 people dead

many more injured maybe even worst than that. Anyone who say's guns and knives cause the same amount of killing needs to be forcibly lobotomized because they are of no use to society at large.

4. Some of our gun nuts are absolutely loving this news

"See! People can go on knife rampages too!"

while ignoring the fact there were only injuries and not multiple deaths in this latest rampage.
