This is where a gun would have been handy.

His attempted suicide would have been an actual suicide if he used one

He killed his wife then cut himself up pretty bad without stopping to reload. He had too many cuts in that knife. We have to ban these high capacity knives.

If she had a knife this wouldn't have happened.

Nothing is as romantic as murder-suicide.

He probably wasn't a knife enthusiast, just an amateur knife owner.

Should have just OD'd on whatever meds were keeping them alive.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: If she had a knife this wouldn't have happened.

I feel bear traps are the real answer. Because let's face it the woman was probably as feeble as they come. She can't be counted on for any sort of fear-inspiring stabbing motion or menacing barrel pointing. Bear traps are self-operating and stealthy enough to ward off any 90+ year old attacker.

Bear traps. Give Granny the medicated four hours of sleep she needs at night. (Void in some states. Not effective against burly homosexuals.)

He also said his wife was arguing and screaming at him all night and that he couldn't take it anymore,

"Given the facts, a murder charge was warranted,"

So... The Knifebook?

I saw 'The Notebook.' A knife would have improved it.
