    One person is in serious condition at a local hospital following the stabbing, Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare said in an updated statement Wednesday.

    Two people are in fair condition and two are in good condition, the hospital said.

    The suspect involved in today's stabbing at Dyke Industries has been identified as Antwann D. Brown, according to the Tallahassee Police Department.

    Brown was an employee at the facility, according to a police department statement.

    Police said he stabbed five employees with a folding knife.

    Hoping for a quick recovery for all the victims. Thank goodness he didn’t have a gun or I think the outcome would have been much worse.

    Yeah. As a matter of fact, guns DO kill people. This "guns don't kill; people do" thing is false. This person had only a knife.

    Yep. That’s why guns were invented. Sharp stabby things like swords and knives weren’t nearly as effective.

    Unfortunately there have been some deadly knife attacks. But guns certainly make it harder for people to evade or flee. Most of the knife attacks that killed more targeted sleeping victims, or children, which is a whole other level of planning and evil.

    In this case the guy used a folding knife. It is a good thing that planning was not his strong point.

    God tells us to pursue peace and avoid angry people for a reason. It is unfortunate when people are harmed through fits of rage. Few disagreements would justify a stabbing. I hope he receives the help he needs and is unable to hurt anyone else.

    My guns must be defective then. All they do is sit there.

    If that’s true why are people so adamant about keeping them if they aren’t effective?

    And if you take away the knives, they'll use their bare hands.

    They are a tool. They are as effective as the person using them.

    Agreed. And 9 times out of 10 when someone is looking for the right tool to kill as many people in as little time as possible and at a distance, the gun is the better tool for the job. That’s usually what they go with.

    Right. And we changed nothing about air travel since then. No new regulations or procedures after that event.

    Removing guns from good guys is pointless, unless the goal is more crime.

    No, not at all, and you should know that. The airplane was used as an anti-American terrorist tool. The domestic mass shooter is almost always local, mostly erratic and carrying out vengeance fantasies, wants to kill as many people in as short a time as possible, and does not have the money or time for training. Stay with us, you and the others, and you will be ready to accept smart regulation when it comes. Because it will come.

    that's assuming that all gun owners are good guys :rolleyes:
    with the fervour that some gun activists display frankly i find them to be more deranged guys than anything else.

    We already have enough regulation. " The domestic mass shooter chooses a gun." Lol. That's like saying " sword fighters fight with swords." It says nothing about how murders in general take place.

    Thank you for agreeing that the foundation of a smart regulation is ground for a domestic mass shooters to choose a gun.
