    BAD-Man with holstered gun rides horse to church

    LISBURG, Ky. (AP) -- Members of a small central Kentucky church successfully disarmed a man who rode horseback to morning services, then walked into the church with a holstered gun. Police said the man, 43, was arrested about an hour later at a house and charged with public intoxication.

    The Advocate-Messenger of Danville reported Monday that local and state police were called to Ellisburg Baptist Church after the man arrived, disrupting the service.

    Cindy Adams, wife of pastor Jerry Adams, said several men led him outside and talked him into giving up his gun and a rifle he had also brought on the horse.

    I was wondering has anyone else heard about this?

    so I guess the horse weaving into the other lane didn't give him up?
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Nothing illegal here about riding a horse or having a gun at church, as long as it's not posted. Now being intoxicated, different matter .... for that he would have had to do community service, pay a large sum to the church coffer, and mowed the lawn all summer.

    So, in Kentucky is it illegal to ride horseback or be intoxicated while being in possession of firearms?

    Regardless, it surely isn't very responsible to be publicly drunk while carrying them. The firearms part must be legal, then, otherwise you'd think they would have charged him with carrying firearms while intoxicated, some measure of endangerment, or some such. Though, I suppose "endangerment" is exactly what it is about drunkenness that excites folks so much.
