When it’s time for back to school shopping, it’s good to have your priorities straight, and Liberty University would like you to add “gun” to your shopping list.

Look, Liberty University loves all the amendments the same but loves one just a little bit more than the rest. See if you can guess which one. After permitting students to carry guns to campus and encouraging students to take a class on obtaining their concealed-carry license, Liberty University is installing a NRA-approved firing range on campus. And they’re the first college to do so.

According to Yahoo, the University filed for a permit earlier this week to build a “nationally recognized, full-scale shooting, training and competition center,” and the NRA offered to help build it. "Last fall, the school's stance on guns attracted national headlines when Jerry Falwell Jr., president of the Christian school, encouraged students to get their concealed carry permits in order to defend themselves against what he said was the threat of armed Muslim attacks," writes Yahoo. His remarks come in conflict with the fact that white terrorists are responsible for more violent crimes on American soil.

He also went on to say this terrifying bit of Islamophobia, “I’ve always thought that if more people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in and killed them.” So you can kind of guess where this dude’s coming from when it comes to guns.

Liberty University also helped finance the Kirk Cameron-vehicle Saving Christmas, which sits at #2 on the IMDb Bottom 100 — even though it barely qualifies as a film.

Anyway, America 2016.
