Yes they should
Obviously most church goers do not want it. Most who say yes don't go to church. Just ask and see. Making the churches decide to say yes or no to the matter was an intrusion by some spineless law makers. It is one more freedom taken away from churches. How? It can hurt a church to say either way. Lets say one permit holder during his/her 5 year permit goes off his rocker, gets a divorce, starts smojing the weed, and his wife's family goes to church there, and now he comes to church packing a gun. Before the law addresses his problems he has made some people very uncomfortable. However in the mean time the church would have to ban everyone from carrying a gun inorder to eliminate him from carrying one or they become libel. Churches can't win with this law. I think Thompson and Ratliff should have to answer before churches for making a law like this. Just another case of taking away our freedom of religion!

Our church agreed to ignore the law. We don't think the state has a right to tell us what to do.
Question

#90 Mar 7, 2013
Can an individual permit carrier that the church feels to be irresponsible or who shows off his gun at church, be asked to not carry it at church and not violate the new law?

Most church have a cop of some kind already attending. What's the big deal. Cell phones get a trained officer there in 3-5 minutes anyway. For me I had rather hire a cop for two hours than to have an irresponsible gun nut packing a weapon. Not every permit holder is responsible.

It was wrong for the lawmakers in Little ROck to put it on the church to allow guns or not allow guns in the worship houses and at church events. THey need to keep there noses out of the churches.

The gun issue has come up in Bible class and our teacher said he was not going to discuss it and stopped the conversation. This is a devisive issue. Churches need to be talking about the Bible, peache, forgiveness and grace rather than who carries a gun and where they carry it.

The government should have no say in it. It should be the Church's decision. You will notice when they want to kick the ten commandments out of Government buildings, or ban prayer in school, then they use the excuse,"separation of church and state". These criminals cannot have it both ways, there is either separation of church and state or there is not. The government cannot have a double standard,it has to be one way or the other.

There is little doubt the state lawmakers over stepped their grounds on this one. It will be repealed if every taken to federal court.

First of all he was not in church. Next he was chastised by Jesus and told to put it up. My question is, what if a church says no don't bring the guns to church but does not put up a sign saying no guns allowed? Can they still ask you to go put it back in your car or take it home? Or is their a penalty against them for not following the law?

Carol let me correct you, Peter was in the Church(meaning body politic, government of God). Remember God doesn't dwell in temples built by men he resides in you, and Peter was God indwelled and was a member of the Brotherhood of Christ. When Jesus told Peter to put away his sword it was because it was in the plan for Jesus to go with them. Jesus was not anti-sword lets say, he condoned people to be armed, he told his people to sell their purse and buy a sword. Jesus Christ was not a pacifist. As far as the gun issue goes in church, it should not be an issue, God gives men rights, rights for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And if a man or woman feels more secure in a violent world to carry a weapon,it should not be a governmental issue, they cannot regulate God given rights. And I showed you what the church(Gods government had to say about it)had to say about it. So if a church wants to tell people they cannot bring a gun in, then they also are going against God given rights, and the statement of selling your purse to buy a weapon.Truth is most so-called churches now days have better things in mind for your purse.....

Bill, Jesus still told Peter to put us his sword up. I will agree they were on a type of church outing. Next deal with "turning your swords into plow shares". No Jesus never really taught guns or sword of themselves to be wrong, but he did teach that to use them against another human there is a better way. Sorry, but it is the enlightened truth. ANd no, it is not against God fro a church to tell congrgants to leave their guns at home.

We want everything solved by the government and that is a mistake. To keep our Country free, we need minimum government in our lives. The goverment especially needs to stay out of our churches. If they want guns in them ,so be it, but don't require them to vote NOT to have them.

Do you guys not know what "concealed carry" means? If someone with a carry permit flashes his/her weapon in public anywhere(that would include church premises)he/she can loose their permit. Must have a valid reason for revealing that he/she is armed - like an armed intruder or a life in danger situation where a weapon is needed and appropriate.
