Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, sharply criticized Virginia Democrats’ gun control measures on a radio show this Monday, January 13, 2020.
Fallwell appeared on Todd Starnes’ conservative podcast, ToddCast, and stated that he’s never seen people more “energized” about any other issue in Virginia than in the current fight over the Second Amendment.
Falwell’s appearance on the conservative podcast came a few days before Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced a temporary gun ban at the Virginia state capitol in Richmond. This ban was prompted after Second Amendment activists announced that they would be holding a gun rights rally on Monday, January 20.
Starnes declared that the Second Amendment is “under attack” as Virginia Democrats move gun control measures forward in the General Assembly.
