Fourteen people were injured and 2 are in a critical condition after a stabbing incident at Lone Star College near Houston, Texas. Many injuries involved stab wounds to the face and neck.
A suspect, Dylan Quick, age 20, is being held in custody. He was detained after another student wrestled him to the ground.
The incident is being treated as marvelous supporting evidence by both gun rights advocates and gun control supporters.
A Lone Star student told cable news how he wished he had been armed. He and around 50 others barricaded themselves into a classroom during the stabbing. "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."
But on the left, the story is evidence that gun-free campuses prevent deaths. The incident is "tragic, but...way less tragic than if he had had a gun. There would be far more carnage and death if the crazy perpetrator had had a gun, or a few. Especially if it had a large clip" writes Daily Kos user MrWade.
