Why isn’t there a “Katana Death” Lobby?
Charges have been filed against the estranged son of the woman who was found stabbed to death in her north Minneapolis home on Monday.
Police say two witnesses sleeping inside the house woke to a masked Ishmael Roberts, 22, stabbing Beatrice Wilson with a samurai sword.
The Katana was the “Assault Weapon” of its time, and the Samurai were still using it even when firearms were becoming mainstream. It was even standard issue to the Japanese Army in WWII!
But not a “Gun Death”, so who cares?
