    As tragic as any domestic violence death is, this case is more proof that if someone wants to kill someone else, whatever weapon available, will be used. Instead of campaigning for new gun laws, why can't we focus our efforts on improving and educating, people in how to handle a situation peacefully? Banning firearms, will not curb murder. Banning knives also will not help. The only thing that will help, is people being taught to respect one another.
