Range will open to the public in a few months
Liberty University, the Christian university founded by Jerry Falwell, opened its student gun range today after over a year of planning and construction.
The range, located on the school’s campus in Lynchburg, Virginia, is presently open only to students but “will be available to the public and law enforcement following commencement in May,” WSET reports.
According to the school, the range “includes a five-stand, a super sporting clay setup, and a bunker equipped with 15 clay trap machines.” Liberty is one of two universities in the country with a gun range on campus.
Liberty University made headlines around a year and a half ago when it announced that students would be allowed to keep guns in their dorm rooms.
Per university policy, students who are uncomfortable with guns are allowed to request a transfer from a room in which a gun is stored.
