Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on Islamic-American Relations said Falwell's remarks "amped up" inflammatory rhetoric toward Muslims...
And Mr Hooper honestly thinks it shouldn't be after the attack in San Bernardino??? Ant their emperor, deflecting it as work
Place violence and calling for more gun control?
By the way, Mr Hooper, go back to your sheep loving....
Thinking I'll exercise more gun control in the form of a solid Weaver stance...
This will make academia's heads explode. This is also the university that Ted Cruz announced his presidency
The cops most always show up after the carnage to write the death reports, it's up to each individual to protect themselves.

Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. urged students Friday to carry concealed weapons on campus to counter any possible armed attack, saying that “we could end those Muslims before they walk in.”
“Let’s teach them a lesson if they ever show up here,” Falwell told students at the Christian school.
Falwell was met with rousing applause from students, but some said he went too far when he appeared to be referring specifically to Muslims, the Lynchburg News & Advance reported.
"I've always thought if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in," Falwell said.
He told the Associated Press on Saturday he was specifically referring to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the couple who shot and killed 14 people during a holiday party in a Southern California office building on Wednesday.
Falwell told the News & Advance, “There are many good Muslims, many good moderate Muslims.” He also told the newspaper he believes it was clear that he was talking about the attacks in California and Paris.
Falwell also told the AP he believed the campus needed to be prepared in the face of the increasing frequency of mass killings. He cited the 2007 killing of 32 people at Virginia Tech, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
"What if just one of those students or one of those faculty members had a concealed permit and was carrying a weapon when the shooter walked into Virginia Tech? Countless lives could have been saved," he said.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe criticized those remarks, saying in a statement to The Washington Post those comments were “rash and repugnant.”
“My administration is committed to making Virginia an open and welcoming Commonwealth, while also ensuring the safety of all of our citizens. Mr. Falwell’s rash and repugnant comments detract from both of those crucial goals,” McAuliffe said.
“Those of us in leadership positions, whether in government or education, must take care to remember the tremendous harm that can result from reckless words,” McAuliffe added.
Falwell said the university is only encouraging responsible gun ownership, not just gun owners. He also said he's decided to carry a gun after recent attacks.
The author's statement "While Falwell's call to arms was applauded, his remarks also seemed to target Muslims." shows his true reason for the piece. This is the typical bullbubblegum from the left anti gun crowd.
Yes, it is true not all Muslims are radical jihadists... we get that. Those that are not, and truly wish to peacefully practice their religion, won't or should not be offended by calling out those among their religion who commit these acts (in the name of their religion) exactly what they are.
The world and media had no issue calling out Catholic priests who were guilty of child molestation. And Catholics, while offended and embarrassed by the act, are not offended by naming them what they are.
The current administration has led us down a dangerous path and is, IMO, responsible for the worsening of race relations (the great uniter is actually the great divider), and the emboldening of the terrorist organizations like ISIS.
If family members, those in the community's they live or friends have knowledge as to a terrorists intention prior to the commission of an act of terrorism and they suppressed this knowledge, then they should be tried, convicted and sentenced for those same crimes.
As to Falwells suggestion to arm themselves and calling out radical Islamists for what they are,, my hats off to him.
Political correctness has already claimed far to many victims, as those same polititions sidestep the issues in the name of this "correctness" people are dead and more will die and the blood is on their hands.
Calling a spade a spade has been lost on this administration, we unfortunately are bearing the costs of our current presidents inability to lead.
Global warming? He actually believes that it's the biggest treat facing us today?
Does that speak volumes of his true intentions? I believe it does.
God Guns. I like it!
Way better than dropping to your knees and trying to prey your war out of being killed!
Not that I'm above prayer when being shot at.
