UC Merced Hero Changes Position on Concealed Weapons, Says He Wishes He'd Had One

Byron Price is a family man, a father of four, and a contractor. He was working at the University of California Merced on November 4th when 18-year-old student Faisal Mohammad, of Santa Clara, began his attempted murder spree.

Seeing a commotion, Price approached the scene anticipating a student fight. Instead, he found himself confronted with the knife wielding man. Undeterred, Price fought back, kicking at his opponent in an attempt to maintain distance and protect his vital organs. He was for the most part, successful, suffering only one stab wound in the side that required nine stitches. A few hours after entering the hospital, he was released under his own recognizance and drove himself home.

Mohammad was shot by law enforcement officers and died at the scene. According to evidence found among his possessions, his motive for the attack was anger at his fellow student over a variety of personal issues.

For his part, Price is slated to make a full recovery. Interestingly, the California resident has revised his position on concealed weapons; according to local news sources, he now “wishes he had one when this all unfolded for him today.

Price is being hailed by many as a hero. His comments on concealed weapons come at a time when the matter of violence on campus and the role played by CCW is the subject of national debate.

    But moonbeam just signed a law that prohibited the three of us ccw holders in California from carrying on school property.
    So irrespective of his stance and perhaps his issuance of a ccw in cal, he’d be considered a felon when he carries on campus.

      So if he had intervened to stop the knife attack with his gun……..he would have been arrested for a felony, prosecuted, and most likely convicted, thus losing his “right” to even have a gun in the future.
      Sooo when in CA just CY(own)A and let the sheeples be slaughtered……after all they prefer it to self protection.

        That’s exactly what the leftists want.

    Wow, knife violence!! We must do something to control this-more knife laws!! Did this guy have a background check to purchase the knife? No, sure won’t hear a lot about any control here. This was a deranged individual, that was violent!!!! That why we carry.

    I would venture to say that 99% of the gun haters have never fired a gun and possibly never even held one.

      But have no problem calling someone who does have a gun to come protect trhem when their lives are in danger.

      Why would you wait to have someone else do for you what you are unwilling to do for yourself? I don’t get it.

        It all sounds great on paper: “Don’t worry, the police will protect you.” It sounds like when I was a little girl and was taught never to defend myself; my brothers or father or husband would protect me. Unfortunately, neither my brother nor my father was around when extreme violence found me. This thinking doesn’t work. It only creates victims. Always know how to defend yourself, and always teach your daughters to defend themselves at a very early age.

        Those making these laws mean well, and in a perfect world…. But this isn’t a perfect world and it’s becoming more and more imperfect.
