Dems call for gun control in wake of Ohio State stabbing spree
It apparently doesn’t matter that the suspect who stabbed at Ohio State University students with a butcher knife didn’t have a gun – or that the attacker was stopped by armed police officers – or that the college is a gun-free zone – because Democrats wasted no time Monday before they began demanding gun control.
As WND reported, police shot and killed a Somali refugee as he was attacking students with the knife outside a science building. The dead attacker was believed to be an Ohio State student — a Somali refugee, with permanent legal residence in the U.S., who lived near campus. There were 10 victims, some suffered injuries from a car running into them while others were treated for stab wounds. Nine were listed in stable condition, and one was critical. Two victims were sent into surgery but are expected to survive.
The story Monday was originally reported as an “active shooter” on the OSU campus as the university police texted instructions for students to “shelter in place” and avoid parts of the sprawling campus. But when the dust had settled, police said there never was any “shooter” on the campus. Ohio State University is a gun-free zone. Only police are allowed to carry guns on campus.
Nonetheless, Democrats prematurely rushed to Twitter to blame the attack on lax gun laws. Hillary Clinton’s former running mate, Tim Kaine, news anchors, columnists, legislators, actors and the founder of the pro-gun control Moms Demand Action immediately decried the “senseless” gun violence and called for stricter laws.
