In the chaotic aftermath of a Houston campus mass stabbing Tuesday, a Lone Star Community College student gave a brutally honest interview with Fox News, lamenting the fact that students can’t carry firearms to protect themselves and others.

“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.”

The young man told the account of when he and roughly 50 other students barricaded themselves inside a classroom when they heard a lot of loud banging noises, “like a rock concert.” He told Fox News that none of the students in the classroom received the school’s text message alert until about an hour after the incident.

It is currently being reported that 14 people were injured in the attack Tuesday morning. One suspect has been taken into custody. No deaths have yet been reported.
