Minnesota doesn't have any prohibition on carrying in church, and in our small-town Church, folks seem fine with "don't ask, don't tell." I know there are several who carry at least occasionally, and when asked, I've encouraged it -- discreetly.

We're called to protect those who are weak from those who are evil, if the evil confronts us. For that, we need to be prepared. At the same time, "concealed" is key. Folks are there to worship the Lord -- not to admire (or worry about) weaponry.
