 "But why would anyone need to carry a concealed weapon to church?"    [L]

Five dead after church shooting
NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - A man shot and killed at least four people in a Louisiana church on Sunday morning before kidnapping his three children and estranged wife, who was later found dead, media reports said.

And no, this isn't an argument against lawful concealed carry at church. This scumbag obviously didn't have a CCW license, nor was he a pillar of the community. He merely had a gun when no other person did. In the land of the blind, the one-armedeyed man is king. In the land of the defenseless, the armed man is king. It's really that simple.

So, people must decide for themselves - are they going to be the sheep, or the shepherd? (Please leave aside theological semantics for the time being).

Maybe it's time to review your personal Church Defense Doctrine?

Labels: ,

did you mean to write..."in the land of the blind, the one-armed man is king"...if so, that is funny. If not, then you might want to make the correction.

Do you pack when you come to church at Apex? If so, I hope you sit near me...

I believe it's the "one-eyed snake is king". I agree about bringing guns to church since organized religion is the root of all conflict. Speaking of conflict, u should have watched ufc 60!

"Organized religion is the root of all conflict", eh?

If you're going to trot out that old canard, then please also explain the causes for the Korean War, the Viet Nam War, World War II, World War I, the Spanish-American War, the American Civil War, the Napoleonic Wars, the American Revolutionary War, the Wars of the Roses, the Peloponnesian Wars, etc.

I'm sure your reply will be vastly illuminating.

Here in Virginia, it's a Class 4 misdemeanor to carry in a place of worship while a meeting for religious purposes "without good and sufficient reason", which is left undefined. Since liberals like to reinterpret the second amendment to infringe upon my rights, I have no problem "liberally" interpreting the clause, "good and sufficient reason" to encompass the protection of my life and the lives of my fellow brothers and sisters.

...are they going to be the sheep, or the shepherd?

I vote for sheepdog.

Heh, I agree with the sentiment Roci (I've read the same sheepdog article), but I used the shepherd analogy because it would resonate better with the church theme.
