  1. Maybe we should ban cars because they were used in these assaults. Silly, huh, like guns don’t kill, the human with the gun kills.

  2. Let’s ban knives and require they be locked up because we had a family attacked by such a person.
    If a person breaks into your bedroom do you seriously think you will have time to unlock a case and then defend yourself. Don’t believe it. Time it out.

  3. well…… least this guy ended in jail……Kudos to Judge in this case!
