In a city eager to clamp down on gun ownership, Seattle appears to be on the cutting edge of another dilemma, a series of knife attacks with the latest apparently happening Friday morning according to a tweet from the police department.
The brief note declared, “One person reportedly stabbed in the arm following a fight at 2nd / Bell. More info as it becomes available.”

One look at the Seattle Police Blotter reveals the criminal element is slashing itself into the headlines, putting the lie to the notion that if people didn’t have guns there would be no violent crime.
On June 1, Seattle police reportedly investigated stabbing “in the Chinatown-International District.” According to the report, the 50-year-old victim suffered a stab wound to the neck. “Arriving officers found the victim near 8th Avenue South and South Jackson Street with a stab wound to his neck.
Less than a week later, in the same area of the city, “police responded to the intersection of 5 Avenue and South Jackson Street and found a man who’d been stabbed in the neck.”
Both of these incidents occurred several days after police in the University District investigated a double stabbing involving two males, one 16 and the other 19. According to the Police Blotter entry, witnesses said “an altercation between the suspect and victims escalated and led to the stabbing.”
What is interesting in all of these cases is that nowhere is there a reference to “knife violence.” Had any of these people suffered a gunshot wound, it would immediately have been described by the local media as “gun violence.” In these cases, instead of demonizing the weapon, the reports show the individuals wielding the knives were the suspects.
There were no calls for background checks on knives, or demands that knives be registered. There have been no appeals for waiting periods, either. To purchase a knife anywhere in Washington State, one simply goes into a hardware or sporting goods store, plunks down cash and walks out with a new knife.
When it comes to gun control in the Evergreen State, it doesn’t seem to be working. A story in the Bellingham Herald, a resident of Blaine—a community on the border with Canada—was arrested in connection with a drive-by shooting. The suspect was identified as Shawn Dale Noisey, who has “14 previous felony convictions, including vehicular assault, harassment, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a firearm and first-degree theft, dating back to 2004,” according to the newspaper.
In a state that adopted the first “Three Strikes” law, that revelation has gotten the attention of Seattle talk hosts and people on social media.
