    Hmmm ...
    Nobody was killed so it won’t get as much traction but sure sounds like work place violence with mental(anger) issues but if he had used a firearm ... it would be manic this crazed gunman that.

    Wonder if it was an assisted opener? If so could we hear assault knives?

    Must have been a gun free zone:

    Police say he used a small, folding pocket knife-style knife in the stabbing. His fellow employees armed themselves with what they could and held Brown at bay during the attack.

    Run Hide or disarm the man with the Case Trapper and beat the ever living crap out of him with a soda can in a sock. I prefer frozen water bottles in gun free zones with metal detectors.

    good thing that knife wasn't fully semi automatic - it would've been a carnage.

    Well, before we get all snarky about this, the specific counter the left uses is "Yes, he stabbed X number of people, but he didn't kill them...if it had been a gun it would have been X dead people..." so this isn't really a hill worth attacking and dying on.

    Isn’t a “pocket-knife styled weapon” also simply called a pocket-knife? :rolleyes:

    To be fair, it probably would have been worse if he had a gun. That's one reason I prefer a gun over a knife.

    Yeah, that's my point. When mass stabbings or people with bats, or whatever people are quick to say "SEE IT WASNT A GUN!"...which the logical counter is "And if it had been, this would have been terrible." So its better to just take the tack that people be crazy and leave it at that.

    When they let you go at my p/t they tell you not to come back for 48 hours.

    I’m telling you if it’s an assisted open knife it will be blown out of proportion ...

    I can't believe they haven't labeled it a tactical knife yet.

    Tactical Kitchen Knife.

    It seems to me that knife attacks also are becoming more common in the US. Makes it more clear that it's a people problem, but that won't be addressed. London, here we come.
