You can't carry in a church in Mississippi?! Please tell me I am wrong...I've been reading and it appears church is off limits. I live in TN and have a TN HCP but am going to visit a church in MS today. Just can't believe I didn't think of this until now...
...probably non-enhanced...they didn't make a dime off of it...but I'd still call and see:

I never understood a church having special protection more than any other place. It's this sort of "special protection" that make it un-protected.

And I can't even carry my pepper spray?....!!!!
....Just found this at handgunlaw.us:
"Chemical Sprays/Stun Gun/Higher Capacity Magazine Laws
Must be licensed to carry a stun gun"
EDIT: Oops. Not true. See here:
Pepper Spray illegal in MS without stun gun license?

...it's for the children, we can all give a little to keep them safe, donchaknow...
To carry in church you must have a Mississippi permit with the enhancement. Out of state permit is a no go for church carry.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
Those who go to church expect peace all over the world no matter what belief or faith (aside from Muslim Terrorists).
Going to church is a time to experience the people of God without worrying about carrying a gun. If you feel the need to carry a gun in church then don't go that Sunday or Saturday or whatever day. Stay home and pray for peace with your God.
...feeling that way about things has allowed many shootings, robberies, and murders...of churchgoers and employees...
...I believe that God will protect Christians while we worship/serve Him...I also believe He'll use well-armed, well-trained men to do it...
...history bears witness that that's true...to believe there is no need to carry a gun to church is naïve at best...the facts in the news in the last ten years prove otherwise...
Bad things happen in churches. Even our beloved DHS has a emergency planning guide for religious institutions that includes a section on "active shooter" situations.
BTW, we really should get that "active shooter" term out of the vocabulary. A better term is "would be mass murderer".
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 226 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
