Over in California a woman was killed by her husband. He stabbed her to death with a sword as her children stood by.
Now he is on the run, and is claimed to have a gun ...
So, a man who has access to a firearm prefers a bladed weapon over said gun? Quite counterintuitive, no?
On another note, 911 was called almost immediately after the attack, police got there in time to collect the murder weapon the killer had left behind, and to draw the chalk outlines around the expired victim.
