The wife and I were visiting her sister over the weekend. She and her husband live in a little town west of the Twin Cities. On Sunday we attended church services with them and afterward the usual coffee and chit chat. My brother-in-law introduces me to a fellow and his son who had just the day before purchased the boy his first hunting rifle. So out to his truck we go in the church parking lot to take a look at the boy's new pride and joy. We are checking the scope out and the action on the rifle in clear view of everyone coming out of the church.
Now remember, this is the state where a group of churches are trying to ban this very thing because of our new carry law. Somehow this rifle out in the truck did not hinder my religious experience one bit as it seems to be doing to the complaining churches. As a matter of fact it was refreshing considering all the crying taking place by the anti gun zealots in the Twin Cities. I also later learned that the Pastor is an avid deer hunter. I have to tell you, I like that church.
