At least 12 people were wounded Tuesday in stabbings on the campus of Lone Star College Cy-Fair near Houston, local media outlets are reporting.

As many as 14 people were hurt in the stabbing spree. Police say they have arrested a suspect.

One victim is reportedly in critical condition.

It was initially thought that there was a second attacker still at large, but officials now believe the attacks have ended.

Officials put the school on lockdown in the aftermath of the attacks, telling students to stay away from the area. Those already on campus were told to seek shelter immediately.

Earlier in the year there was a shooting at a different Lone Star College campus.

If Samurai swords and Ginsu knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have wall sheaths.

"MORE KNIFE LAWS!!!!!"

Was it an "assault" knife or a "scary-looking" knife?

I think this school is in Ted Poe's district - I wasn't sure so I called his office anyway. His staffer said he was certainly sure that Poe knew what had happened it.

I asked her to see if Poe was going to make a announcement, that even if guns are all banned, people will find a way to kill anyway.

This should be shoved in Obama's face.

This is exactly what they seriously are doing over in England, knife bans and such. They outlawed guns but knife crime went up staggering amounts.

Lone Star College = Student loan & Pell Grant cash cow, with little to no education received in exchange by the welfare crowd. Last generation’s youth who worked for a wage and built skills have been replaced by enrollees in state run adult daycare.

See final segment. Imagine how horrible it would have been if he had had a knife. It wouldn’t jam up, and he wouldn’t have accidentally stabbed himself in the foot. No, knives are much worse than guns.

I once had a knife confiscated in the Jerusalem Central Bus Terminal. It was in my suitcase, a Tanto knife I bought from my sensei when he had to close his dojo. Funny enough, there was a knife store right upstairs in the terminal, where I could have bought something not quite as good but comparable. But the knife showed up on the x-ray machine so they confiscated it, made me authorize its destruction, and the officer then probably sold it.

see a human can make a weapon out of anything. a tooth brush can be sharpened to a point and be used to gut someone as it is done in prison regularly.

so ban humans , it's the only way to be sure our children are safe. never mind that it's only a handful of nuts out of 330 million who don't go on mass murdering sprees, because there are a handful out of 330 million then ban all humans.

this is the logic liberals/democrats are using to ban guns when mass murdering sprees are a statistically non-existant event, out of a trillion to the trillionth power of events that happen the media cherry picks a few of those to control us , and further the socialist agenda

I have a so called automatic knife which gives me one handed opening and relief for my arthritic hands. Now, when I was a youth, such a knife would be illegal.

The problem is the human brain. It has the capacity to think creatively, even when it comes to destruction. In fact, human minds are especially creative when it comes to committing murder or defending against murder, which really amounts to the same thing. So you can have humans with legitimate sporting purposes. Just ban their high-capacity minds. Lobotomize, don’t criminalize.

May God be with and heal the victims!

I see the jokes about banning knives, and I initially made that joke too, but I realized quickly that the liberals have a response to this. I figured, based on comments I’ve read on articles regarding guns and knives in papers like the UK Daily Mail, they would say that a lot more damage would have been inflicted if he had a gun. When I heard it on the news, they said 4 or 5 people were in critical. Hopefully, they don’t die. If they don’t, the liberals will say they would have died had he had a gun. If they do, they’ll say more people would have died had he had a gun. I went over to DU, and sure enough, I figured correctly. Just a heads up that will be their response to that argument.

I suspect a single-shot with an extremely fast reload rate.

Actually, libs aren’t saying that. They are saying nobody was killed and are saying imagine what would have happened if he used a gun instead of a knife.

How do they get on campuses without background checks? One would think that the campus administration would screen out nuts from matriculating, and have some security after all these incidents. But no. Just wait and hope that the federal government will come down from on high and make everything all better by preventing the nuts they allow on campus from buying a gun. Pool chlorine will explode if you pour gasoline on a packet of it in dry form. No priming charge, no nothing. Try controlling that.

The answer to that is a gun has to hit a vital area to kill, and once you are out of bullets, it is no longer dangerous. A knife does not run out of edge, and can slash an artery anywhere on the body, and the victim might not even know he’s been cut until he bleeds out. Arteries are exposed to the skin surface all over the front of your arms and the back of your legs, in addition to the carotid arteries and jugular veins on the neck. Only a fool stabs instead of slashing with a knife or sword. Only a broadsword and an axe are made for hacking. Samurai swords and French rapiers are made to slash with, the latter also being good for light quick pricking. In conclusion, knives and swords are better killing instruments than a gun. The only real advantage a gun has over them is that it can be used from far off. Other than that, a knife is more versatile than a gun, but a garrote is more certain to kill than either a gun or knife, and easier to conceal.
