LYNCHBURG, Va. ― The CEO of the National Rifle Association is praising Liberty University for allowing qualified students to carry concealed handguns on campus.

Wayne LaPierre said Liberty was one of the safest places in the country at the college’s regular three-times-weekly convocation on Wednesday.

The News & Advance reports that LaPierre praised students who own firearms or support the right to own firearms.

University President Jerry Falwell Jr. announced last year that eligible students could carry guns anywhere on campus. Previously, students who qualified could carry guns anywhere except residence halls.

Liberty University has more than 14,500 residential students. One requirement for having a concealed-carry permit is being 21 or older.
