As for the pastor I do not object to his taking a stand on 2A. However, assuming he is called by Christ, he is called to preach the gospel and sound doctrine, and not to spend a lot of energy on gun rights.

I would attend a church where the leadership did not want me to carry, but I would not attend a church where the emphasis was on social problems, including 2A, instead of the gospel message, and strong Bible preaching.
Once in a while, OK, but to spend energy and resources on other than Biblical preaching is not acceptable. That is not what the church is called to do.

Jerry I agree with you there are way to many churches that put social programs / problems and political agendas first and sometimes only , than totally miss Bible Preaching and the Gospel message , sure once in a while we need to address these issues and as a preacher I have done so but my first love is CHRIST and pointing people to him .
