    Probably because to use a knife you have to (1.) be in really close proximity to use it and (2.) it can only be as dangerous as how quickly a person can swing their arms and (3.) it can't go off accidentally.

    If our families and our society insisted on better behavior, we would not have as much violence.

    Another fine example of what will continue to happen, even after all the guns are gone. Is it sinking in yet folks? Had this crime been committed with a gun, there would be dozens of calls for more gun control. So why is an assault with a knife not met with those same dozens of comments? Hans, Grand Union....where are your calls to put more control on knives? That's right, you only want to infringe on my second amendment rights. The rest doesn't matter.

    After the heinous murder in Chapel a Hill last week, the mayor spoke out of the need to keep people safe.

    Where is Mayor Bell?

    It seems like his citizens deserve to hear from him given the numerous crimes committed in his city and by his residents.
