At least two dead after man opens fire at Mississippi Walmart

There’s an affinity for violence, too. Most people don’t carry knives anymore. (I do, but it’s a little folding pocket knife I carry for work tasks. Hardly something that I’d think would be effective in threatening someone.)

My Leatherman’s blade is not frightening. My Bowie knife (a gift) hangs on a wall. But I know some guys (and gals) with bayonets always at hand. And switchblades and spring stilettos abound. If I weren’t lazy, I’d look up statistics on blade vs firearms attacks.
