  1. Idiots! That's what some Americans have become as they "settle" minor disputes with violence. The solution may to license folks when they attempt to buy knives. Yeah, that's the ticket. It would most likely cut down knife violence. Fat chance!

  2. I guess Williams Sonoma better start figuring out how to register their knife purchases in store and online then.........I'm also waiting for the day I have to start showing ID when buying water.....because if I drink enough water or force it on someone else they'll die of water intoxication.

    The violence in the valley is getting so out of hand.
