(Reuters) - At least 14 people were injured during a mass stabbing at a local community college in the northwest Houston area Tuesday morning, according to the local rescue officials.

Four people were critically injured during the incident at the Cy-Fair campus of Lone Star College in Harris County, the Cy-Fair volunteer fire department said.

One suspect was detained, local police said.

"LOCKDOWN at LSC-CyFair. Seek shelter now. If away, stay away," the school posted on Twitter at noon local time.

Three people were shot at a separate campus of Lone Star College in January.

We need common sense laws that will limit knife wounds to 7 victims or fewer.
This sort of tragedy would never happen without the corrupt lobbying of the National Knife Association.

I think we can all agree that we need to limit the size of the knife blades and the knife handles. It will be harder on the steak eaters in the country, but it is for the safety of the children.

Notice that, because a knife was used & not guns, there are numerous people injured but not killed. Of course, the gun nuts will ignore this fact.
