FOX 29 Investigates: Teens Buying Deadly Weapons

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

We know all too well the tragedies involving young people and firearms, especially handguns and assault rifles.

But there are other deadly weapons available to teens that are a lot easier to buy.

We're talking about kids and knives.

FOX 29's Jeff Cole reports that when a weapon is used in a Philadelphia public school, it's most likely a cutting instrument.

But how easy is it for teens to get their hands on these potentially lethal blades?

FOX 29 Investigates went undercover to find out. You may be stunned by what we found.

You can watch our report in the video above.
