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 that the law would let us carry guns because we're legal adults, [to] carry guns on campus to protect ourselves. But so far all we have to rely on is God. But we would love to have God and the law on our side."
