Mississippi governor signs law allowing church members to carry guns

guns in church

The Church Protection Act specifies that those designated can carry guns into church buildings and gives them legal protections. It also allows people to carry holstered weapons without a permit.

  • Woot!

    Hell, my buddies in MS have been carrying in church for 25 years. I don’t think it’s ever crossed their minds whether it’s been legal or not.

    .45 ACP
    They don’t call it “God’s own caliber” for nothing.

    • It’ll stop anything shy of a charging bull elephant.

    I wish we had a Church Protection Act in California. Our Pastor wants to carry in church to protect his flock, but our crooked sheriff only issues CC permits to his closest friends.

    • Better to ask forgiveness than permission.

        Better to be tried by twelve than carried by six.

    Why are the most religious and zealous the most anti-religious and the most violent? It seems to me that religion should go back to loving one’s neighbour and wanting true peace in the world and not wanting war. This church seems to be promoting violence and instilling fear in followers like shepherd to a flock of sheep.

    There is nothing wrong with owning guns but there is a time and place for everything.

    • Yes, and the time is when an Islamic mob decides to attack a church.

      Better to have a gun and not need it than the other way around.

      They just really, really hate you, and hope you visit so that they can demonstrate how really, really much they hate you. It will make you really, really feel loved and appreciated.

    Muslims won’t like that because allah likes killing unarmed civilians and burning people to death in their temples for that islamic touch.

    People should be required to demonstrate basic safe handling at a minimum.
