Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University, is once again urging all of his students, age 21 and older, to arm themselves for self-defense purposes.
“It’s where all universities need to go,” Falwell told Fox News’s Sean Hannity Monday night.
Falwell appeared on the show three days after telling Liberty students, “I’ve always thought if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walk in and kill us.” Falwell was talking about the slaughter of 14 people at the hands of Muslim radicals in San Bernardino, Calif. on Wednesday.
On Monday, Falwell told Hannity he is upset about Democrats’ calls for gun control following the attack.
Falwell recalled the “terrible carnage” at nearby Virginia Tech eight years ago: “I remember thinking for years after that, what if just one of those students, one of those faculty members, had had a concealed carry permit? What if they had been able to stop that shooter before he killed 30-plus lives?
“And I just determined after that incident to make sure that Liberty University students were prepared, were able to protect themselves, to have the chance to protect themselves. It’s not all students. It’s only age 21 and older, faculty and staff. So we don’t have a bunch of 18, 19, 20-year- old students running around with handguns.
“But it’s a policy that’s been in place here for several years, and it’s worked well for us, and I’m proud that Liberty was one of the only schools to take that position initially. Now dozens have followed suit. And I think it’s common sense. It’s where all universities need to go.”
