A Virginia Tech graduate who was present during the 2007 massacre in which 32 people were shot dead on campus has come to the defense of another school's campus-carry regulations.

"[The] worst situation is to have no defense," said Nicholas Roland, a Ph.D. candidate in history at the University of Texas-Austin, The College Fix reported.

Roland was a senior at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University when a deranged senior shot and killed 32 and wounded 17 others — the second deadliest shooting incident by a single gunman in U.S. history.

"The police were not fast enough and 32 people died" because nobody else was armed, Roland said during a town hall forum hosted by CBS Austin and The Daily Texan.

The campus carry law went into effect Aug. 1, allowing licensed holders to carry a concealed handgun on public university campuses in Texas.

Students who oppose the law organized a protest last week on the first day of classes in which they carried sex-toys around campus.

Earlier this year, three professors unsuccessfully sued in an attempt to block the law.
