All three know that I carry outside of church, so I posed the question to my pastor. I asked if he had a problem with armed individuals in the congregation, and he emphatically said he did not. He said that if you were licensed to carry, then by all means do. So I do. I only know of one other person in our congregation that occasionally carries on Sunday, and that's my grandfather. I'm hoping some others will step up as I'll be heading back to college in the fall, and the older women in the church have voiced increasing concern over the safety and security at church.
    Maybe you can suggest a day for cc class for the older women of the church. I have my cc license, They too can qualify for theirs. Tell them that there is nothing on earth like empowerment! Or, I'll can talk to them for you if you want me to.

    A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.

    I always go by, "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission."

    In these cases it would be easier to be alive than dead.

    I sent the pastor an email about that. Concealed carriers with their permits would be allowed to keep their concealed carry firearms loaded and carried as usual.

    Wouldn't do much for me, though, since I am a open carrier myself.

    If you want to carry all sorts of weaponry at a religious gathering, paganism offer many wonderful options. I've seen all sorts of weaponry at various pagan religious gatherings. Swords, spears, shillelaghs, et cetera. Some sects practice a ritual known as the rite of the bow. When was the last time you got to break out your archery equipment at church?

    I doubt very many pagans would object to your sidearm at a banquet or other event.

    I think I will pass thanks.

    More than we know

    The church my parents attend in VA had checked the laws of the state, and has begun quietly issuing letters of permission to carry to long term members in good standing that have appropriate permits. There is always an armed presence at every service. The pastor said many of the sheep in many local congregations nearby would be surprised how many armed sheepdogs are in their midst at every service.

    OK, I was all joyful when I clicked on the link to read about this great pastor in Kentucky - until I saw that the guns had to be unloaded and private security would be there to check them.... Big let down. Let me say that for me it's always Bring your gun to church Sunday and my pastor knows it and appreciates it - and he knows it's loaded because an unloaded gun is just a paper weight. And I say tell your pastor and if he says "no" find another church. My understanding is that the proper translation of the 6th commandment is "thou shalt not MURDER". Otherwise, why would Jesus have told his disciples to carry a sword? Oh I know, it's easier to open the water mellons and coconuts if you have a sword. That must be it.
