Liberty University's (LU) strict code of conduct and Christ-centered worldview has given it a reputation as one of the nation's most conservative schools.
A recent decision to end LU's gun ban will strengthen that public perception.
On November 18, the university's Board of Trustees voted to end the school's ban on firearms. Now, students, faculty, and staff with a concealed carry permit will be allowed to carry their weapons on campus grounds.
While the change in policy does not permit students to bring weapons into university buildings, some faculty and staff will have that authority.
The announcement is a complete reversal from LU's former policy. Previously, carrying a weapon on campus grounds was considered a maximum offense. Violators of the policy could have been fined up to $500 and expelled from the university.
