    I carry where ever I legally can which includes church but my wife has recently complained about me carrying in church. She says I don't need to carry there, that it is safe.
    I look at it this way....if I wanted to rob people where better then a church? They carry cash to give or maybe go out to eat after, they are wearing their best clothing, jewlery, watches, etc..... and most of them are completly in the dark about protecting themselves. I carry in church for those reasons as well as to be able to protect myself, my wife and those around me. Am I alone?

    Hey Spitty,

    Remind your wife that almost all of the current terrorist of the day are Muslim extremist that believe all Christians are infidels and are on a jihad to wipe them out. It is only a matter of time, IMO, before they start to target Christian houses of worship even in the United States.

    Can you say random? Or Murphy's law?

    Better to have it and never use it than to not have it and REALLY need it!

    I don't attend services.

    I think you should carry in church. Remember that preacher who got shot last year in IL? He got shot in the church, at the pulpit, through his Bible. I seem to recall an even worse event in the recent past involving a shooter at a church. Besides, you are already wearing a jacket; concealment should be a breeze.

    About ten years ago, a man went into a Fort Worth church at a Wednesday night service and killed seven people. Churches are FAR from immune, right Spitty?

    You are correct. I believe strongly that carrying in church is a good idea.

    Recently in North Carolina some P.O.S. kidnapped 2 ladies from church. (They were working as volunteers). He drove them around the ATM and took there jewelry....

    Not that long ago somebody with a grudge against a church walked in and started shooting. It even happened to an Amish (or possibly Quaker) church not too long ago....

    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". :D

    You guys have really opened my eyes to the fact that I should be carrying in church as a PRIORITY and I never even realized it. You're absolutely right. So when my wife drags my a$$ to church, I'll be packing.

    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.

    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 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.
