Killing Innocents, The Saddest of All Sadness

3 dead, 12 wounded in Belgian day care stabbings (AP) AP - A man went on a rampage at a Belgian day care center Friday, stabbing two young children and a female worker to death and slashing 12 others all over their bodies, officials said.

Here we go again. Two additional adults were there, but not a single one had a firearm to defend these children. The assailant took his time and, when he finished slicing up these innocent children, rode his bicycle to the grocery store where he was arrested. The absolute topper to this horrible incident is the man has a history of mental illness according to local residents. There will be no closure to this for the parents.

I would rather the headline have read, "Deranged Man Armed With Knife Shot And Killed By Daycare Workers Before He Could Harm Any Of The 21 Children In Their Care."

Instead, this will be the announcement, "Will it never end!!!! We need knife serialization legislation now! Knife sales should only be authorized for women and only after a full FBI background check. Parents found with knives in unlocked kitchen drawers should fined into penury and be liable for any cutting event caused by these most dangerous weapons. President Obama needs to find someone to write an Executive Order for him to sign that requires covers with locks on all pointed instruments to include swords, spears, scissors and the pointy heads of elected officials."
