  2. Ban knives !
    More people die every year from knives and blunt weapons than firearms. Please do something about bats and edged weapons !

  4. How many times are you going to read the same line over, and over, and OVER, AND OVER AGAIN?!? We get it "‘multiple’ people stabbed in North Vancouver" and it's even in the title.

  5. I live close to Lynn valley library and I was on vacation so my brother texted my parents oh there was a killer at the mall and he was in subway beside it when it happened now there is 9 insured and 1 dead so sad
