Can you take a guess as to why you won’t hear about it? I’ll give you 20 seconds to come up with your answers…**sips coffee, ponders the reasons why**Yep, you guessed it. You won’t hear about it because a gun wasn’t involved. Four people and a dog were murdered with a knife in Santa Barbara on Monday. Ironically, it’s the same place where the nutjob who couldn’t get a girlfriend went on his killing spree a few months back. That was all over the news for weeks.And guess what? That ‘shooter’ killed the first three victims with a knife. Here is the breakdown of the ‘no girls like me’ rampage:Knife attacks: 100% murder rate
Vehicle attacks: 0% murder rate
Handgun attacks: 27% murder rate50% of the people killed were done so with a knife.This new mass murder was done solely with a knife and the perpetrator is a 46-year-old man who police have yet to identify.Dear Media, mass murder is mass murder. Whether it’s committed by using a firearm, a knife, a baseball bat or fists, it’s mass murder. People die, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the method in which they were killed.I think it’s been clear for years that guns are not to blame, but rather a horribly crippled mental health issue in this country.
