What a waste. If I was a resident of WI I would be outraged. Good thing they are taking the scum off the street by arresting a PRIEST!! Good job boys in blue.... Way to get those criminals off the street. Hey, I got a hot tip on a robbery for you. There's some old ladies using the walking path here in GR without a pass... GET 'em!!

Another example of the lunatic, right-wing conservative nutcases. These people are completely off their rockers! Sadly, this is yet ANOTHER example of the lunatics in Wisconsin doing more nutball things.

Our pastor, Larry, almost always carries a concealed wepon. We're also one of the few churches that not only doesn't have a "guns banned from premises" sign on it; in fact we have a signs saying "we respect the first and SECOND amendment here."

Darrell, my husband always carries to church, I do if I'm wearing a suit jacket, otherwise the holster ruins the line of my dress. I feel okay with that if Darrell has his piece. My younger daughter usually has her weapon as well, as she doesn't wear dresses as much as pants and sweaters.

There are rules, though, you have to have a permit--it sounds like this pastor forgot to get a permit.

Frankly, if I thought my paster was carrying, I would go to church more often.

PS. U R so Hott!

Hope no trigger happy saint shoots down a sinner before seeing the target. We know what harm results from sound shooting during deer season.

The Sheboygan paper explains the situation and the situation was similar to what I suspected: "Putnam told the officer he had the gun in his car and wore the body armor when he went to the parishioner's house to take three rifles from him."

Geez Mrs R, a little biased against all people of Wisconsin? You sound just like Homeland Secretary Napalitono with your comments about lunatic right wing conservative nut-cases. Just more dumb comments from a utopian liberal with no clue about the real world. Maybe you and Napalitono are one in the same, are you? I would say that we have plenty of lunatics like you in every state doing nutball things. Go Vikings!

Perhaps a parable will help. A man has a house on a riverbank. The river starts to rise. A deputy sheriff comes to tell the man he needs to leave. The man says, "No, God will save me." The river continues to rise, a National Guardsman arrives to take the man to safety in a boat. The man says, "No, God will save me." The river continues to rise to the rooftop, a Coast Guardsman in a helicopter tries to rescue the man off the roof. The man says, "No, God will save me."

The man drowns.

When he reaches the pearly gates, he asks St. Peter, "why didn't God save me?" St. Peter says, replies, "who do you think sent the deputy sheriff, the national guard and the coast guard?"

This parable relates to the issue at hand this way: who do you think gave Man the ability to defend himself with guns and bullets.

Have a blessed day.

It was just a mix up. Everyone in Sheboygan Falls knows that Thursdays are Hard Liquor & HandGun Nite at the Church.

Woooo hoooo, chicks with guns. I think all those gun nu--, er, enthusiasts will think impure thoughts during the service if they know all the phillies are strapped.

What are you so worried about? Do you have solid gold pews or something? Did you bust up the bingo game on Thursday at a rival church. T.P. a narthex somewhere?

You are much more likly to be killed driving to church or killed by bees or sharks than you are to be killed by a nut who storms a church. At least in a normal church. However, you church, Our Lady of Smith and Wesson (or is it St. Luger), the chances of being shot in church probably higher than normal.

Why doesn't the man just shoot the river?

Taking guns away from people, does the Rev. get to church in a black helicopter?
