Jerry Falwell, Jr. Defends His Call for Concealed Carry on College Campuses
In a speech last Friday, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. urged his school's students to carry concealed weapons, especially in light of the massacre in San Bernardino, Calif.
"I always thought that if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walk in and kill," Falwell said to raucous applause. "So I just want to take this opportunity to encourage all of you to get your permit. We offer a free course. And let's teach them a lesson if they ever show up here."
Although many responded positively to his message, Falwell has also come under attack from critics, including Hillary Clinton, who allege that he's adding to a hateful, anti-Muslim atmosphere.
Falwell explained to Sean Hannity tonight that after the terrible Virginia Tech shooting in 2007, he resolved to make sure that Liberty University students were prepared to protect themselves.
"It's a policy that's been in place here for several years, and it's worked well for us," Falwell said. "I think it's common sense. It's where all universities need to go."
“Sadly, at most universities, the students would have no option. They would not be allowed to protect themselves. They would not be allowed to have a permit, and we’ve got to change that in America.”
