Liberty University to stay gun free

The Lynchburg News and Advance reported this morning that the Liberty University Board of Trustees has decided to continue to ban firearms on campus.

It was believed by some (this writer included) that the private conservative Christian university was Virginia's best chance at getting self-defense policy in place at a major four-year college or university. In the end, the governing board opted not to allow commonsense to prevail. While the decision is disappointing, it should not be a complete surprise as the usual comments ("can't imagine handing out grades to students with guns") were thrown out in the article from those opposing the change in policy.

Currently only Blue Ridge Community College allows students to carry on campus.
