Liberty University Wants Students to Carry Guns

America’s largest Christian university has found itself at the center of a national gun debate. Just days after Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr.—the son of the school’s founder—made controversial comments advocating for firearm-wielding students being able to “end those Muslims” after the San Bernardino terrorist attacks, the school changed its campus gun policy. School administrators will now allow students to carry firearms in residential dorms. Falwell told the student body that it is his “responsibility to keep you safe in an increasingly dangerous world,” noting that the school offers classes where students can get their concealed-carry permits.
