While Friday’s convocation may have ended, the applause and criticism that came after Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. urged students to get permits to carry concealed weapons has not.

The Washington Post, CNN, NBC, Esquire, Politico and several other news sources from around the country have picked up the story this weekend after Falwell’s remarks starting trending.

In a 2½-minute address before dismissing the students, Falwell urged students to take advantage of the university’s free class for concealed-carry permits as a way to counter attacks similar to the bloodshed in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday.

    Protect yourself and those around you. Get a gun or slaughter house knife anything you can get your hands on. Don’t be a sitting duck, fight back.

  • Bob Hunt says:

    I applaud Mr. Falwell, maybe some other ranking university folks will get on the bandwagon.

    He, Jerry Falwell Jr, has a legitimate reason for urging students to get a concealed carry permit. One thing for sure if the students are carrying a weapon a would be perpetrator would think twice if they knew their life might be in danger, even if it were a terrorist there would be enough weapons to take them out. Sounds like a sensible plan to me. But of course liberals would say that doesn’t make any sense, but with their inability to think with the logic that truth requires, what can one expect. I might add, the students should be required to have proper training in firearm usage. Good military type training is essential.
