First of all, I've seen guns on those who carry concealed weapons several times, so I KNOW you can't make that claim. You've got a large piece of metal or plastic shoved SOMEWHERE.... Second, if the church allows concealed carry, the congregation will assume some number of attentees will have a gun. It doesn't bother you, but it just does bother others, and for statistically ZERO increase in safety.I don't attend church save for funerals or weddings these days. I don't carry all the time-I always have a firearm in my car unless its illegal and the only reason why I have a gun on me now-at home is because the house across the street was the subject of an armed robbery (a very rare occurrence) and the robber has yet to be caught and I often am 100s of yards from my house due to the size of my property.
but you would never ever know I had a gun. and if I was sitting in a pew next to you, you'd never know. So your claiming it would detract from your worship is just plain BOGUS.
I'm not "afraid" of people carrying guns, but I do not trust those who I don't know who are carrying guns. I've seen accidental discharges several times in my life, and I don't give a damn how safe you say you are. Unless I know you, know you are trained, know you are responsible, I'd insist in my house you take your gun off your hip and leave it in the car. There are 100 things that can go wrong, and I'm 51 and haven't one time needed a gun in my house. I'll take the risk of you not defending me against home invaders while you're here.and that you appear to be afraid of people carrying guns is not my concern. If you are afraid to carry-DO NOT but stop judging those who do
And if it was my church, I'd vote the same way. It's not worth ONE SECOND of worry so that you feel safe singing hymns and praying in CHURCH.
And how others feel about guns in church should be at the very top of your list of concerns. And the only judging I'd do if you decide to carry in church is conclude you're selfish, and admittedly so, because you don't care how your act affects others.
I cannot find words to describe my revulsion at his act especially under those circumstances. Revulsion isn't even a visceral enough word.
Another one...in Oklahoma....another muslim POS was beheading people at a business and one of the managers shot the guy before he could kill anyone else.
Oregon mall shooting....good guy didnt even have to fire a shot...merely his presence caused the shooter to kill himself instead of more innocent people.

oh btw I am very well trained. I was trained well enough to carry handguns on planes or in federal courthouses. I also had perfect qualification scores on the USMS qualification course. on top of that I have held "Grandmaster" or Life Master qualifications in other high stress high speed shooting sports
I have not ever needed a fire extinguisher in my house and I am 56. but I have them all over the place. I have flood insurance as well even though we live on a slight hill. You saying you don't need a gun is absolutely worthless as an argument
the guy in CT whose two daughters were burned alive after he was viciously assaulted and his wife raped and then killed probably believed that too-up to a certain horrible time in his life
As you say in this post, you are consistent about such morons.
I am merely asking you to demonstrate this claim so that others may see precisely how consistent you are.
Heres Obama...just link to your outrage.
Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
