As Twitchy reported earlier, Ohio State University was under lockdown due to an “active gunman” earlier this morning. Since that story broke it has become clear the suspect actually did not have a gun but used a knife and rammed a crowd with his truck.
OSU Police say suspect rammed people with his vehicle, then got out and attacked with butcher knife.

Governor Kasich sent out his thoughts and prayers to the Ohio State community:
Ohio's thoughts and prayers go out to the Ohio State community. Be safe, listen to first responders. https://t.co/5qtfH3Fb6d

And as usual, gun grabbers who don’t pay attention to reality or facts were all up in arms that Kasich would DARE send prayers out to the community. Particularly nasty was Shannon Watts jumping to conclusions and attempting to use the situation as a means to push her anti-gun rhetoric.
Lesser known gun grabbers were also front and center screeching for gun control, over a knife attack. *eye roll*

Even though it sounds like no guns were involved … perhaps she should be asking for stricter knife laws?
Can't wait for all the politicians who refuse to adjust gun laws to send their "thoughts & prayers" to Ohio State.https://t.co/uaZhF9d8Ll

No fly no knife? Hrm … doesn’t quite work like their other nonsense.
If this story is correct, there were no guns on the scene at OSU except for those wielded by the cops. https://t.co/qSUCduEZ0M

So when do the Democrats stage a sit-in for knife control?
There was no active shooter at Ohio State University. Suspect used a car & a knife. Just goes to show the most dangerous weapon is the mind.
