The following statement is issued by the Society Against Reason, Comprehension And Sound Minds:
Today at Lone Star College’s CyFair campus in Cypress, Texas, a white male went on a stabbing spree leaving 14 injured.
The attacker was armed with a military-style knife, also known as the “X-Acto.” The X-Acto knife is the “civilian” version of the standard military medical scalpel. Scalpels are issued to combat surgeons in battle during times of war!
In the United States, X-Acto knives are sold over-the-counter to children! Many come with multiple blades, and are completely unregulated in most jurisdictions!
Some will claim that X-Acto knives have a “sporting purpose” because they are used by civilian “hobbyist” and “historians” in the construction of scale models of military equipment.
Much like violent video games, this so-called “modeling” is just another gateway to violent behavior!
We call upon Congress to act immediately and ban such knives!
At the very least, we must demand background checks, serial numbers, registration and waiting periods.
It is the opinion of this commentator that such deadly tools of war belong in the battlefield operating room, not on the streets of America! Only a trained, military doctor should have access an X-Acto knife!
