Excerpt from The Federalist
Written by Bre Payton
Progressives used a brutal knife attack at Ohio State University (OSU) on Monday as an excuse to demand more gun control, even after authorities declared that they had no evidence the attacker even used a gun during his rampage.
The attacker reportedly struck pedestrians with his vehicle and proceeded to stab several others, harming at least nine individuals, one of whom is in critical condition. Despite OSU’s initial tweets stating there was an active shooter on campus, authorities later said there was no evidence that the attacker used a gun during his attack. The victims are being treated for stab wounds and injuries sustained from being struck by the attacker’s vehicle.

It sure would be presidential for Trump to use Twitter to condemn gun violence right about now. Which is likely why it isn't happening.— Anne T. Donahue (@annetdonahue) November 28, 2016
