Liberty University President Tells Students To Carry Guns And “End Those Muslims”

Submitted by on December 6, 2015 – 12:31 pmNo Comment

Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of evangelical Liberty University, encouraged an estimated 10,000 students and faculty at a convocation on Friday to get permits to carry concealed weapons. Falwell said that legally arming those on campus could prevent mass shootings such as those in San Bernadino this week, and at nearby Virginia Tech in 2007. Falwell specifically targeted Muslims in his remarks.

“Let’s teach them a lesson if they ever show up here,” Falwell said. “I’ve always thought if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in.”

Falwell has also stated that since the San Bernadino shooting, he had carried a pistol in his back pocket, for which he is licensed. He offered to show it during the speech. Falwell said over 100 students have inquired about a free class to be licensed for concealed carry.

Black Friday last month saw a huge spike in background checks for gun purchases, and gun sellers have reported a boost in sales this week. President Obama is set to address the nation on the San Bernadino shootings this week.
