The Left Wing’s political correctness vice grip that has made bedwetters out of wackademia nationwide was tossed out of the window by Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr.
Falwell urged his students to get concealed firearm permits, so they can protect themselves and others from any armed attack at their campus, Falwell referring of course to the recent San Bernardino and Paris attacks.
The idea itself makes a lot of sense, and has been suggested by law enforcement as well. Here is what Falwell actually said, as reported by Fox News:
“’I’ve always thought if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in,’ Falwell said
‘Let’s teach them a lesson if they ever show up here,’ Falwell told students at the Christian school.”
Falwell encouraged his students to take advantage of a free course at Liberty to get their gun permits. A university president sure to make the NRA proud.
Liberty University is located in the state of Virginia, which allows its residents to get a handgun permit if they are 21 years old and complete training that satisfies state requirements. Falwell has a concealed carry permit and pointed out that he had a .25 cal. pistol in his back pocket.
Leftist politicians and media swarmed in like vultures to predictably promote their narratives of “gun control” and “Islamophobia.” It’s the best cover they can find to protect a president who has failed miserably in the war on terrorism. But Falwell didn’t back down, while clarifying his comments to The Washington Post:
“Falwell said that when he referred to ‘those Muslims,’ he was referring to Islamic terrorists, specifically those behind the attacks in Paris and in San Bernardino. ‘That’s the only thing I would clarify,’ Falwell said. ‘If I had to say what I said again, I’d say exactly the same thing.’”
The Liberals don’t seem to want to acknowledge that radical Islamic terrorists are looking to attack “soft targets,” and there is hardly a softer target than the politically correct lemmings who occupy wackademia, aka “gun free zones?”
Falwell has made it clear that Liberty University will not be a soft target. In fact, he has put terrorists on notice that if they dare try and harm his students they will be killed.
I suspect that ISIS has no intention of striking in a “gun” state, and now terrorists can scratch Liberty off of its list of targets, thanks to a university president who refuses to be muzzled by the PC police.
