    When I was in Kosovo for the Army 2 years ago, we had to carry into Church. I always felt strange, and I noticed a lot of people took their sidearm off or left their M-16 at the end of the aisle.

    I don't care if someone does, I guess I just hope that this is one place I'd never need it.
    "No matter how one approaches the figures, one is forced to the rather startling conclusion that the use of firearms in crime was very much less when there were no controls of any sort and when anyone, convicted criminal or lunatic, could buy any type of firearm without restriction. Half a century of strict controls on pistols has ended, perversely, with a far greater use of this weapon in crime than ever before."

    Heh, that's if you get caught! I'd like to see the prosecutor press charges against me after I just saved an entire church full of people. They'd have a massive protest by the end of the day! Might be worth it just to get the legislation changed, so to speak. Stinks that something like that would have to happen for people to see the light.... All puns intended!

    Here in Michigan, it's OK in the parking lot, but not in the building, unless you have permission.

    At our church in Garland, Texas, if trouble breaks out there will be at least 1/2 dozen concealed guns close by. I can think of several men who carry. Our annual men's retreat has been jokingly called the beef, bible, and bullets retreat.

    You are correct.
    As long as the church does not have a licensed child care facility or a K-12 school then you are fine. If they do then they are prohibited for open and concealed carry.

    Sunday school is a gray area as there's no statutory definition of a school under NRS 202.

    its your personal responsibility to carry no matter where it is as responsible citizen. as long as it dont break any laws. you should ask your friend why he is shucking his responsibility

    I am a music minister and future Deacon. IF Illinois EVER gets concealed carry legislation (and I hope we do) would feel funny carrying a weapon in church.
