Bad news from Minnesota, readers. A man bent on a terrorist mission has rammed his car into a crowd at a St. Cloud shopping mall, injuring some and shooting nine dead.
No, wait! I have that a bit wrong. He was not armed with a gun, but instead he carried an equally deadly knife. The carnage was no less shocking:
Nine people were hurt in a knife rampage at a Minnesota mall during which the attacker made references to Allah, authorities said.
The suspect was shot dead by an off-duty police officer at the Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud, which began around 8 p.m. (9 p.m. ET) on Saturday.
I guess that settles the dispute over knives being just as deadly as handguns. I have a great idea. Let’s issue guns to our military and to police and require terrorists carry only knives.
