Fox News reports:
As schools nationwide debate on how to keep firearms away from campus, Liberty University opened a multimillion-dollar gun range today for student activities and hosting competitions. The largest Christian university, located in Lynchburg, Va., already allows students to have guns in their dorms and more than 3,000 students have completed free firearm safety courses offered through LUPD, a prerequisite to use the new range.
Brad Butler, Liberty’s planning coordinator, told Fox News the range, which should be opened to the public later this summer, is modeled after the NRA Whittington Center in New Mexico. “Jerry Falwell, Jr. is definitely a visionary when it comes to developing collegiate programs and activities that the students really want to be engaged in,” Butler added, “and without his bold leadership and the support of the Second Amendment, we probably wouldn’t be developing a project as nice and sophisticated as this.”
Liberty University official reflecting on the size and sophistication of the school’s new gun range, saying, “if it’s Christian it should be better.” https://t.co/MSfyLvPKch pic.twitter.com/DPeB9WrCPW
