School knife attack prompts questions

To the Editor:

The stabbings at the Murrysville, Pa., school which resulted in multiple victims has me wondering about a few things. Such as:

Should the victims sue the manufacturer of the knife used? Do we need “knife control?” Should the feds stick their bureaucratic nose into it and call for knife registration and background checks for those wishing to purchase a knife?

Ridiculous, you say? Outlandish? Socialism at its very worst? Hey, all the above apply to guns, so why not to knives, axes and other edged weapons, baseball bats and anything else that could be used to inflict harm?
