College stabbing leads to desire for guns among students

By | April 9, 2013

With more than a dozen individuals reportedly injured during a stabbing at Lone Star Community College near Houston, students almost immediately responded by asking why they are not allowed to defend themselves.
In an interview the same day as the stabbing, one student expressed dismay at a college rule prohibiting him from carrying a firearm on campus.
While he was spared in the attack, the student said he and his classmates were left with little option aside from hiding during the tragic incident he described as sounding “like a rock concert.”
Had he and other students been allowed to adequately protect themselves with legally owned guns, the attack might have been much less severe.
“God protected us in our classroom,” he said, though he expressed the helplessness he felt in being unable to assist others.
“We wish we could protect ourselves with guns and stuff,” he added, upset that “all we have to rely on is God; but we would love to have God and the law on our side.”
Additionally, he said the college’s significantly less effective alternative to allowing guns was completely useless during the incident.
Though the school has a policy to text students when such situations arise, he said no one in his classroom received the alert until the attack was over.
Policies demonizing guns and gun owners will never result in a safer society – in fact, that is not the intended purpose. By restricting our access to protection, we are inevitably left at the mercy of our government, which is exactly where power-hungry politicians want us.
As foolish as their tactics might be, if the left’s intent is to protect us from ourselves then we might expect a nationwide call for a ban on all sharp objects.
Call me skeptical, but I’m not holding my breath.
