It’s not the tool, it’s the person using it…Woman arrested in deaths of eight children, including 7 of her own

Police haven’t said how the children died. But Asnicar said they’re examining several knives in the home that may have been the weapon used to kill the children.

Our hearts and prayers are with these children and their families. This sort of thing should never happen. But, even in a country where guns are all but banned, evil found a way and guns weren’t involved. It looks as if ordinary household knives were involved. Of course, countries like Britain would and have reacted to heinous crimes like this with calls to bans on everything short of a butter knife. Let’s hope the Australians don’t follow suit.
