Student Hammers No-Guns-on-Campus Policy on Live TV After College Stabbings: ‘We Would Love to Have God & the Law on Our Side’

A student who was on campus at Lone Star College in Houston during the frantic minutes a suspect apparently ran around slashing college-goers gave a brutally honest interview on live TV begging lawmakers to allow guns on campus.

The young man said that as the person was unleashing terror on campus, he along with 50 other people barricaded themselves in a classroom built for about 20. But that’s all they could do.

“God protected us in our classroom.” he said. ” We wish we could protect ourselves with guns and stuff. We wish the law would let us carry guns because we are legal adults… So far all we have to rely on is God, but we’d love to have God and the law on our side.”

A state lawmaker appeared on “America Live” with Megyn Kelly explaining that the current concealed carry law in Texas does not allow for licensed gun owners to carry a weapon to protect themselves on college campuses.

He told police he’d fantasized for years about stabbing people to death

He was charged Tuesday with carrying out a building-to-building attack at a Texas community college that wounded at least 14 people, many of whom were stabbed in the face and neck, authorities said.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that 20-year-old Dylan Quick used a razor-type knife, and that he told investigators he’d been planning the attack at the suburban Houston campus for some time. Two people remained in critical condition late Tuesday.

The stabbing spree began around 11:20 a.m., and students described a bloody scene.

Diante Cotton, 20, said he was sitting in a cafeteria with some friends when a girl clutching her neck walked in, yelling: “He’s stabbing people! He’s stabbing people!”

Cotton said he could not see the girl’s injuries, but when he and his friends went outside, they saw a half-dozen people with injuries to their faces and necks being loaded into ambulances and medical helicopters.

Michelle Alvarez told the Houston Chronicle that she saw the attacker running toward other students and tried to back away. She said she didn’t even feel it as he swiped at her.

“He came running and swinging at my neck, as I tried to get out of the way,” she said.

Harris County Sherriff Adrian Garcia said that when emergency calls came into the department, there were indications that “students or faculty were actively responding to work to subdue this individual.”

“So we’re proud of those folks, but we’re glad no one else is injured any more severely than they are,” Garcia said.

Media and police swarmed the quiet neighborhood about 10 miles from the campus after the attack. Some neighbors described him as quiet, and noted that he didn’t appear to have many friends, staying indoors most of the time unless his parents were outside working in the yard.

Michael Lincoln, who lives next door to the Quick family, described the suspect as friendly.

“If he’s outside, he speaks to me, `Hey neighbor, how you doing?'” Lincoln said.

He added that Quick had never been aggressive, which makes the accusations against him shocking.
