    A lot of stabbing a lately. Ban all knifes. I want a background check for every knife bought at Wal-mart for every knife. That’ll keep these stabbing a from happening……

    Yeah, instead, give them a couple of machine guns, so the idiocy can be magnified by a factor of 10.

    Seriously though, thank goodness guns were not used, else we might have had a murder.

      @ Elphas. Have you read this story? The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man authorities say was an accomplice in the fatal stabbing of a Tontitown woman last week.
      Authorities are looking for Lewis Anthony Hedges, 34, in connection with last Wednesday’s (May 21) stabbing death of LeAnn Frazier, 32, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

      Just some food for thought before you comment.

    In previous comments Elphas you were for guns and this time you are against guns being used. I will save this comment for later use to refute your opting for making gun-toting an Arkansas pastime. Maybe you are becoming more enlightened.

    Best Regards.
