Virginia’s Liberty University President, Jerry Falwell Jr, has announced that from this day forward students will be allowed to carry concealed handgun — if they have a permit — in their dorm rooms.
Yeah, I see this working out really well.
Now, to be fair, and I am nothing if not fair here at ISBL, those students will not be allowed to arm themselves without permission from the school first and the guns would be kept in safes inside the residence halls.
Unless, you know, some lunatic with a gun permit decides he or she wants their gun and goes and gets it and then goes on a killing spree, but that could never happen in America, right?
The move comes on the heels of Falwell’s announcement last year, in the wake of the San Bernardino shootings, that eligible students could carry guns anywhere on campus:
"I've always thought if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in."
Um, Jerry? Asshat? Who gets to decide who the “good” people are? Asking for a friend.
See, all it takes is one not so good person with access to a gun and permission to carry it anywhere at all for something bad to happen, but don’t think about that Jerry.
After all, dead students don’t stay in our thoughts for long.
