Decided to throw up another “Gun Death?” post for the day when I heard this local story:
Police tell us that a father and son have been stabbed during a home break-in. This all happened around 1 a.m. this morning in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The search is still on for the suspect.
It happened around 1 a.m. on Pearl Street. Cambridge police tell us a boy heard a noise inside his home on the first level of his duplex. The boy went down to investigate, and when he confronted the suspect, the father came down to see what was going on and a struggle ensued.
“The homeowner and son were both stabbed. The male father received multiple stab wounds,” said Sgt. John Boyle. “It’s an active investigation.”
The son was stabbed once. The victims were sent to area hospitals, and police tell us their injuries are non-life threatening and they are expected to make a full recovery.
I have no idea what the motive was, but a man broke into their house, with a KNIFE and stabbed both of them. Thankfully the wounds appear to be non-fatal. Still not only is this violent act not “Gun Death” as the anti-freedom bigots like to parrot, but it would be a GREAT time for some defensive gun violence on behalf of the father protecting his home and his son. Sorry but going toe-to-toe with a knife-wielding man at 1am is not a good place to be in.
So carry your guns, and be ever vigilant.
Oh and FYI Cambridge Massachusetts is one of the more difficult towns to get a permit to OWN a gun, and unless you know somebody important who has a connection to the chief of police, you will NOT get a carry permit as a resident. Of course this is coming from a man typing this in Cambridge carrying a gun, so that little policy makes no sense unless we realize that gun control is only there to discourage and harrass lawful people.
Be Safe people!
