The president of a fake university, Liberty University, wants students to carry guns so they can “end” Muslims before they even walk in the door.
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. urged students during Friday’s convocation to carry concealed weapons on campus in the wake of Wednesday’s massacre in San Bernardino, California.
Students erupted in applause; however, the remarks did not come without controversy after some felt Falwell unfairly called out an entire religion rather than just extremists.
It just blows my mind when I see that the president of the United States [says] that the answer to circumstances like that is more gun control,Falwell said.… I’ve always thought if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in.
I’m trying to figure out how this works. So before they commit any crime, before they draw their guns and charge in blazing, you’re supposed to just shoot Muslims? But how will you know they’re terrorists? Is it just open season on Muslims?
He did clarify, and explain that not all Muslims are evil. Just the ones who shoot people.
I was referring to ‘those Muslims’ that just carried out attacks in Paris and California,he said in the tweet clarifying his comments.
So…we should be armed, so that we can shoot people who are, perhaps, carrying weapons before entering a college classroom, for instance? I don’t think he’s thought this through. He seems to be suggesting that we summarily execute religious fanatics and fundamentalists who are walking around public places with weapons, while telling an institution full of religious fanatics and fundamentalists that they should be carrying weapons in public places.
I’m trying to keep an open mind. I’m not at all a fan of violence, but if the college president wants to turn Liberty University into an apocalyptic wasteland of paranoid gunslingers, who am I to argue?
