Packin' Heat for Jesus

Good grief. In these trying times, does Arkansas have no other pressing issues?
The Arkansas House approved a bill allowing concealed handguns in churches. The bill, which passed on a 57-to-42 vote and now heads to the Senate, removes churches and other houses of worship from the list of places where concealed handguns are banned. Currently, the only private entities where concealed weapons are banned are churches and bars. The bill’s sponsor, Representative Beverly Pyle, Republican of Cedarville, said she introduced the measure after a series of church shootings across the country.

Just what we need. MORE opportunities for church shootings. George Carlin would be so proud.
