    Was he a legal immigrant?

    Just because someone has a foreign name doesn’t mean they’re immigrants. Quite an ignorant comment considering there’s nothing about immigration status anywhere in the article. Not relevant. 🙄

    Sushi chefs can be temperamental.

    A cleaver can do some damage and I'm not talking about Ward or Beaver.

    Seems like there has been a lot of non-gun violence with "other" weapons. There was the guy in NLR that was killed with a brick in the last few weeks, some other odd weapon in NW AR, and all types of knives and axes. Goes to show if you really want to try to kill someone, you don't really need a gun.
