Bishops say: "No concealed guns in Churches"

The Methodist, Episcopal, and Lutheran (ELCA) bishops that oversee the Kansas area have asked that Churches be added to the list of exceptions on a bill that has already passed the state senate and would allow Kansans to carry concealed weapons. Exceptions, where no concealed weapons may be carried, currently include schools, government buildings, and mental health centers. I thought this story was somewhat amusing (and I would be surprised if anyone offers serious resistance to the bishops' proposal) and as someone who spends lots of time standing in front of Churches, I think a ban on concealed weapons would be a very good idea.

What about 'open carry'? Will that still be allowed?

haha it had better be - you know this country is going down the drain when we law abiding citizens can no longer brandish guns in church. Just think of how long the sermons might get!

A church is a sacred place... not one to carry a weapon. I think they can put down the gun long enough to hear the word of God. The bishop has a great point... why didn't the senate think of this? Christianity does not support violence... it should be pure respect to just put down the weapon.
