    Any Masons out there carry conceal at lodge?

    I just wounder from my mason brothers if you carry conceal at lodge or do you disarm before attending lodge . Does any brothers know what the policy of grand lodge is on this issue. Here in Kansas no by laws on this issue.

    Yes for Lodge and Star. Right now, I am practicing Don't ask, Don't tell. Your Grand Master can rule either way for his year. For permanent ruling, should be voted on by the craft at Grand Lodge Session.

    Thumbs down

    Nope.

    See comment #3.

    I've attended Lodges that had a shadow-boxes, under the watch of the Tyler, for leaving them outside.

    Shrine functions are another question.

    Yes, I do remember, however we have had vehicles stolen from our lot, at least three break-ins, and recently, local miscreants used one of our parking lot lights for target practice. They managed to hit it three out of about 15 shots from what holes in the building we could count. And with the medium age of our active members approaching the late sixties, both male and female, I WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE AT MY DISPOSAL whatever I feel I need to assist in protecting my friends, brothers and sisters.

    Regards,

    Aw, sounds like again we only obey rules that do not offend our sensibilities regardless if we made a promise or oath to obey them.

    The pistol I slip into my right front pocket is neither offensive nor defensive, but instead, protective.

    offensive or defensive? Been a while, but isn't that just for EA's during their initiation. Never left my pocket knife with the Tyler. LOL just thought of this "Ground floor or checkered grips" Sorry had to say it.

    I never thought about it. We do have the Tyler to protect against Cowans and Eavesdroppers.
