Guns in churches: Help or hinder?
from Associated Baptist Press
With gun legislation on President Barack Obama’s agenda and the National Rifle Association fighting against more gun restrictions, it seems every organization in our culture is thinking about guns. That includes churches. Many states, mostly in the Midwest and the South, have laws protecting a gun owner’s right to carry a concealed weapon in a house of worship.
Arkansas’ governor is about to approve a bill
that will allow handguns in churches and North Dakota is eying a similar bill. Church leaders are considering how we can better protect churches. Evacuation plans, lockdown procedures and child protection are all issues that pastors and lay leaders are looking at. But should a plan include guns?
