According to WSET, attorney and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr appeared on the Todd Starnes radio show regarding the firearms legislation in Virginia. When questioned where he stood, Falwell replied:

“I’m pretty sure I’m going to call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this,”

Strong statement. The Evangelical leader went on to clarify his statement alluding to the fact that while we don’t know what the final law entails, that he’d back civil disobedience should it be severe in nature.

All signs point to it being so. And it’ll take more than simple ‘civil disobedience’ to resolve the issue. Appreciate the gesture, now back it up, Jerry. Your dad and the rest of the evangelical leadership talked a big talk back in the 90s too. Some of us remember how that went.
