School stabbing spree: 20 hurt in Pittsburgh-area bloodbath
(Photo: NBC News)
As many as 20 students were hurt, some with life-threatening wounds, when a classmate went on a stabbing rampage through the classrooms and halls of a high school outside Pittsburgh on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

proof if you take away guns, people will still find ways to hurt each other

Yes, but let’s consider that for a moment: Thus far, there have been no deaths. All the victims are expected to live. In the Newtown, Conn. shooting, Adam Lanza killed twenty-six people in less than five minutes. Not maimed — killed.
A gun is going to make a person more lethal, in less time, from further away. With other methods, like a knife, the attacker must get close to their intended targets (versus spraying bullets indiscriminately), and this gives opportunity for others to run and/or subdue the assailant.
When the principal at Newtown tried to stop Lanza, she was murdered. The vice principal in this case was able to tackle the suspect and he was cuffed by the school resource officer. Yes, people will still find ways to hurt each other. There’s no reason to make it easier for them to do so.
Please don’t claim this attack “proves” gun control proponents wrong, or firearms advocates right. I will admit, my first thought was, “Thank God he didn’t have a gun” — however, when are we going to have a discussion about what leads a high school sophomore to this kind of attack as a solution? Or anyone, for that matter? Perhaps he had access to guns and maybe he didn’t. We don’t know.
The undeniable truth here is that for whatever reason, he chose knives, and that choice, in this instance, may have made it more difficult for him to rack up the kind of body count we have seen as a nation in similar mass attacks when a gun is used.

I’ve tended to find that, after shooting sprees, victims don’t post selfies of themselves recovering in hospital. Mainly because they go to the morgue, not the wards.

^ Ahem.

Actually, taking away firearms won’t prevent people from committing acts of heinous violence. It also doesn’t mean that they will be easier to stop because they can’t shoot you from 20 feet away.
A knife is a killer, just like a gun. Pretending like it isn’t, and that guns are worse, is a ridiculous notion. Practically any object can kill if its put into the wrong hands…and in those situations, it won’t matter if they do it from 20 feet away or from 2 feet. If you aren’t prepared for the encounter, you will likely get severely injured and/or die. 
Do you all think that it’s that simple? “Oh he has a knife, he has to get close so it will be harder for him to hurt us.” Do you honestly think those kids in that school had some kind of knife defense training or any self defense training at all in order to prevent them from panicking the moment they realize they might die? Do you think they know how to properly disarm an attacker who is holding a knife and subdue them accordingly? What about the teachers? Don’t assume that because its a melee weapon that you have an advantage. 
Stop trying to force the blame on guns. Blame the people using the guns, and other weapons, to harm others.

hey dawg i’m a united states marine and lemme tell youwe are armed with firearms for a reasonthey make us more efficient. they make us more dangerous. they keep us out of melee range of the enemy. we are able to use fire and maneuver (thanks to the distance) to close with and destroy the enemyif you really believe knives are as dangerous as guns, explain to me why we aren’t just deployed with ka-bars ya fucking shitting infantbe intellectually honest, at the very least. it’s really not much to ask, i promise

Marathons for Veterans 

On a rainy, windy March 28, Tate Fischer, the Bureau of Land Management Boise District’s new manager for the Four Rivers Field Office, introduced us to one of his unique interests — ultra marathon running. Tate completed a 50-mile run in 10 hours and 32 minutes during the Pickled Feet Runs held at Eagle Island State Park located about 10 miles west of Boise. 

This is the third 50-mile event Fischer has completed. Prior to Eagle Island, he competed in the Buffalo 100 Mile Ultra at Antelope Island State Park outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Fischer usually participates in these events after collecting donations for two veterans’ organizations, the Wounded Warriors Project or Team Red, White and Blue.

When asked why he enjoys events like this, Fischer, who is a veteran himself, said, “I run for those who can’t; this is the least I can do for those who have sacrificed so much.” He also noted that the mental solidarity gives him a chance to clear his mind and focus better on his priorities.
