I caught a lot of grief last week after my "blog" about the attack at the Texas Community College. My blog concerned the fact that no matter if you ban or limit the magazine capacity of firearms, it won't change anything. The attacker last week used a box cutter and managed to injure 14 people. No firearm at all. The point was that if evil exists, limiting ammo isn't going to correct the problem. Today is a great example of this. A bomb planted at the finish line at the Boston Marathon. No firearm, no knife, no box cutter. A BOMB!!! Did you hear me??? A BOMB!!! Whoever planted that device certainly had evil, malice and ill-will. He or she also had a mission.
Once again, violence has erupted at an institution of learning. At least 14 people were stabbed yesterday at a Texas Community College by a 20 year old student that went from building to building, stabbing several, many in the face and neck. Authorities are now saying that "the attacker" had been planning the attack for quite some time and had even fantasized about killing people since he was in elementary school. I will only refer to the suspect in the incident as the "attacker" as I will not mention him by name, giving him the 15 minutes of fame that he so desires.
