Potent difference between 'knife control' and 'gun control'

I was going to write this letter the day of the knife attack at Franklin Regional High School but never got around to it. I absolutely knew there would be thoughtless letters like the one Jay Londino wrote (“Knife Control Now?” April 12).

Mr. Londino insinuates that there should now be knife control because someone used a knife in an attack. He is intimating that you cannot control gun violence, just like you cannot control knife violence. I would like to ask Mr. Londino how many people he thinks the student would have killed if he had an automatic weapon instead of a knife.

I know there were some horrific wounds inflicted, but as far as I know no one has died. What would the death toll be if an automatic weapon had been used? Come on, people, let’s use some common sense about the difference between knives and guns used in a violent attack.
