    Blatant example of ” Cutlery Violence”. The availability of swords, knives, sharp instruments is what leads to crime. NOT bad choices by the prep. but any inanimate object that can be used as a weapon. We need more background checks and Di Fi to list the scary sharp stuff that should be banned.

    President Obama is calling a meeting of his cabinet to discuss this. First order of business was to obtain a round table. The Mayor of New York offered to Donate all the horses and wagons from Central Park to be shipped to DC to bring the DC Police on equal footing to fight this advanced weaponry that came forth in DC.

    Had the victim not already cast his Magic Missile spell early that evening, this confrontation would’ve ended differently.
