Liberty University will allow students to keep guns in dormitories next Fall.
Liberty President Jerry Falwell announced plans to change the policy in December pending board approval, which it did last week.
It means that beginning in the Fall, students with concealed handgun permits from the state can get permission from the school to keep their guns in safes in their dormitories.
Falwell says the idea is to help students who don’t want to keep their weapons on the glove compartments of their car. The University will provide the safes.
