We all know that going to church can be quite hazardous and Arkansas’ Concealed Carry Association feels your pain.
Should you be able to carry a gun to church? It’s a question state lawmakers will be taking up next week when they debate a bill that’s kicked up a little controversy. The bill being discussed would let churches decide on their own to post a sign to ban guns inside, but opponents say it should not even be an option.
Grant Exton is a gun owner and president of the state’s Concealed Carry Association. He’s been working with lawmakers on a bill that would allow people licensed to carry a concealed handgun to take their guns to church. Exton says the proposed law’s less about guns and more about property rights.
