Guns are not the answer.. violence, except when they are. Got that? Today we have an article from the Associated Press.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — One of four victims in an Ohio attack at a downtown office building suffered knife wounds to his abdomen, face, shoulder and arm as he tried to stop the attacker from stabbing another man, his girlfriend said.

But, who was this Hero who took knife wounds. He must have been some wimpy fella that couldn't hold his own. Let's see.

Donte Dunnagan "was just protecting the lives of people he loves," Therese Buckhardt of Logan tells The Columbus Dispatch. "He would have done that for anybody; he has a big heart."


Buckhardt says the 6-foot, 250-pound Dunnagan, a part-time professional wrestler, works in the Miami-Jacobs financial aid office and also takes classes there.

A 6-foot tall 250-pound Professional Wrestler! So, what happens when a knife weilding attacker starts slashing people in an office and you don't have a body guard? Well, you get together with your co-workers and take the knife away.

The man confronted the first victim in the admissions office of Miami-Jacobs and stabbed him, Columbus police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner said. Others intervened and took away a knife the man was using but didn't realize he had others, Weiner said.

That's right ladies and gentlemen, the attacker had not One, not Two, but THREE assault knives. Ready for the DGU? Here it comes, but it wasn't a civilian CCW, they had to wait for the cops to show up, which was rather quickly.

"He had a knife, and the police had just pulled up, and they're saying, 'Sir, you need to stop. You need to just put the knife down.' He wouldn't," said Jackson, of Reynoldsburg. "They drew guns. 'Sir, please put the knife down.' And he kind of lunged at them, so they shot him."

There you go, guns are not the answer to violence, except when they are. Last week there was a mass shooting at a Psych Clinic that was a gun free zone, what stopped the shooting spree, yep, you guessed it, a gun.

What do we take away from this article? If everyone had been armed, there could have been only two victims, the first victim of the knife attack and the attacker.

What do you think?
