It is NOT legal to carry in church in Missouri, but I do each and every Sunday. LCP .380 in the pocket. No chance of detection.

And those are just american dirt bags. The people that call us 'infidels' might attack our churches one day.

My CCW class starts in Feb, so for now I don't. Put me down for "want to".
This happened about thirty miles east of me. It was actually an amish school. Which is pretty the same in the amish community. The nutsack walked in, and shot seven (not sure) kids in the head. Lined them up execution style. Killed several, several others brain dead/ disabled. The guy was the driver of the milk truck. I think we should carry everywhere outside of our homes. If I frequented church, I would certainly carry.

I would recommend it. I carry everywhere, and thats my full-sized '92! Hell, most of the time I stuff it in the belt just to take out the dog (live in an apartment), heh.

We carry guns for the same reason we carry seatbelts. I'd bet most of us have no been involved in potentially life-threatening wrecks, and probably most of those we know haven't. But we know those wrecks DO happen, so we buckle up to protect ourselves from that. I have never been mugged or held at gunpoint or anything like that. But I know that stuff DOES happen, including at church, so I carry to protect myself from that as well!

I was a little fuzzy on the details, I just remember thinking "Why in the world would anybody have anything against those people?". It just makes absolutely no since to me. It's scary to think of "deranged" people killing good people for no reason especially at a school or church.

Greetings. I just joined literally ten minutes ago.

I too carry everywhere that I am legally able to do so. I guess I fall under the mindset that the poop can hit the fan anywhere, even in church.

I grew up a few miles down the road from where that happen.

I remember that. It was in White Settlement (north Ft. Worth). They were teens that got killed.

I don't go anywhere without packing. All it takes is being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and the SHTF...

Current law in Georgia expressly prohibits carrying in churches under the ridiculous "public gathering" statutes...Our legislature is currently in session, and, hopefully, we will see some changes in this and other useless prohibitions (like school "safety zones") before the session ends.
