Arkansas Church-Gun Legislation Resurrects

After the tragic church shooting in Illinois this weekend, Arkansas State Representative Beverly Pyle is reintroducing her failed concealed weapons bill that would make it allowable for members of certain churches to carry guns to church.

The governor has indicated that if the bill is approved by the legislature, he would sign it into law.

    It's a tough debate. The church shooting speaks volumes, but how comfortable are you knowing the person praying next to you has a gun?

    Well, hopefully the person next to you who has a gun believes that "thou shalt not kill." I can see both sides of this question … it's a tough one. It is sad to see so much crime happening against churches, from theft to mass killings.
