    Very Good. I visit AR sometimes as that is where most of my family lives, and the wife's also

    Regarding the statement in the paper.
    Quote LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — The Arkansas House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a bill allowing concealed handguns in churches, despite hearing arguments that lawmakers should put their faith in God, not guns. End Quote

    I once had a Christian friend visit me, and as he left he noticed the alarm on my front door.
    He asked me, "Why does a Christian have a burgler alarm for his house?"
    My reply was, "Do you leave the keys in your car and it unlocked when you go shopping?"

    End of discussion!

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Quite a number of states already allow CC in churches.

    FL, for example. And there are others.

    It looks as if it going to pass ,as it should.

    Back in the day, when people were taught respect, a gun in a church wasn't needed.

    Now that respect is almost non existent in our society, a church is nothing more than a target rich environment for any wacko that wants to operate unhindered.

    Personally, I do not believe in gun exclusion zones. Its stupid to think that a sign or a law is going to prevent someone from being violent.

    CC in Church and bars is allowed in Kansas. They still have the option of posting their buildings if they wish.

    Can't have guns in church in Virginia, but looking at the shootings at churches in Colorado in 2007, I hope this is changes across the country for defensive purposes. I think you can get permission from your pastor, though.

    That one gets me too.
    There are some houses I go to that I feel really nervous without my gun. I'll have my Estwing at my side, but I either have to inform, leave the gun, or break the law for the CCW.
    I'm comfortable informing some of my customers. Some, I know wouldn't like their service guy carrying a pistol, and some make me really nervous. Most of the time, it's their dogs that I'm worried about and not them.
    There have been times I wanted to break that law. Several times I refused to work or enter the premises at all.

    The little Pomeranian that doesn't bite, took six or eight good hits with my clipboard before knocking him off my leg and made him quit biting. If it was a Rot or Pit, I don't think that aluminum clipboard would have worked.

    It's a stupid law, and it needs to be changed.
