While Some Colleges Try To Ban Guns, This One Plans To Build A Shooting Complex

posted on December 10, 2016

Liberty University, a private Christian university in Lynchburg, Va., has always been at the forefront of promoting and preserving the Second Amendment rights of its students. The school has a liberal campus carry policy, and recently made news for offering firearm storage options in its residence halls. 

Continuing that legacy, on Dec. 5 the university announced plans to construct a new state-of-the-art outdoor shooting complex on its campus. Preliminary schematics indicate the range will include 100-, 200- and 300-yard rifle ranges; a number of shotgun ranges; stands for skeet, trap, five-stand and sporting clays; a pistol range; a tactical shooting area; an archery range; and even an area for 3-gun competition. 

“Liberty will be the first university to have nationally recognized ranges that meet NRA and NCAA guideline standards and be able to host all Olympic shooting sports on its central campus property,” said Brad Butler, planning and construction coordinator.

The facility, which will also be open to the public, is expected to offer training and host competitions, in addition to offering a great place to shoot.
