      Do you carry at church?

      When you go to church and dont really have plans of going anywhere else (maybe lunch) do you carry?

      I'd vote no, but that would skew the results since I don't attend church. If I had some sudden change of opinion and somehow became religious, I'd carry in church without hesitation.

      Same here. (If my permit had arrived by then)

      I voted "NO" for the following reason off the back of my permit...


      PERMITEES ARE PROHIBITED FROM CARRYING A CONCEALED FIREARM INTO ANY:

      #8- place where persons are assembled for public worship, without the written consent of the chief administrator of that place.

      Previous priest wrote me a letter, stating I could carry. New priest wouldn't have it. No letter, no carry.

      My last visit was for a funeral and yes I was carrying.

      When I dress after showering in the morning I include my Galco Summer Comfort for either my M&P40 or GP-100 (mood dependant). I insert whichever I have chosen into the holster within a few minutes of dressing.

      About the only deviation from that practice is when something unusual occurs like changing oil in my truck or car which involves use of a creeper or similar activities that yield discomfort or damage if carrying. As soon as the task is over I re-arm.

      I don't require a plan to leave my residence to arm myself.

      I had to get that plug in there Mike given that you agreed with me once this week. Amazing

      I don't go to church on sunday morning. so no
      My church is the outdoors. So yes.
      and at the last funeral? yes
      last wedding, no. Why? I live in a tri-state area. my CPL for that state has not been approved yet.

      I don't go to an organized church... but if I did I would carry as places of worship have traditionally been a place where a-holes like to make a statement.....

      Weren't two people recently killed at a church by some psycho, and a CCW person or security guard shot him? I seem to recall that in the news a few months ago....

      I carry every where it is legal to do so.

      If I knew exactly when and where I would need my CCW, it would sure be more convenient. Then I would only have to carry it on those "special" occasions.

      And if I knew that, I'd just stay home with a shotgun handy.

      I haven't attended church since I was a kid, but if I did, I would definitely be carrying, since it is one of those ideal targets for a coward who needs to take defenseless people with him on his way out of this world.

      The only time I have been in church since I began to carry has been for weddings and I have carried at all of them.

      I carry most of the time when I go to church. The instructor that I got my CCW from has armed deacons at churches. He also informed me that a church is one of the top places that a terrorist might target. From what I know we have security but they dont carry. So if I can get a few of the BGs then more of the members will live.


      So yeah I carry anywhere I can.

      I didn't vote because I don't have a carry permit but, if it was lawful I would carry to church. My reasoning is simple, I've seen "Kill Bill II".

      I don't go to a church so I don't think I should vote. If I did attend I don't think I would though. I guess I'd just have to ....have faith that anything requiring a weapon wouldn't occur.

      IMO, if law allows, there is valid argument for CCW in church. In addition to the guy in CO that killed two girls at the church who was then killed by the CCW holder we have:
      • August 12, 2007: A lone gunman, Eiken Elam Saimon, opened fire in a Missouri Micronesian church, killing a pastor and two other churchgoers.
      • May 20, 2007: A standoff between police and a suspect in the shootings of three people in a Moscow, Idaho, Presbyterian Church ended with three dead, including one police officer.
      • Although not at a church building, the Oct. 2, 2006, attack in Lancaster County, Pa., by a gunman who killed five girls and then himself at an Amish school targeted a religious site.
      • May 21, 2006: Louisiana. Four were killed by a man at Jesus Christ Church.
      • Feb. 26, 2006: Michigan. Two people were killed at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church by a man who reportedly went to the church looking for his girlfriend. He later killed himself.
      • April 9, 2005: A 27-year-old airman died after being shot at a church in College Park, Ga., where he had once worked as a security guard.
      • March 12, 2005: A man walked into the services of the Living Church of God in Milwaukee and open fired immediately, killing seven people.
      • Oct. 5, 2003: A woman opened fire in Turner Monumental AME church in Kirkwood, east of Atlanta, killing the pastor and two others.
      • Sept. 16, 1999: Seven young people were killed when a man opened fire during a prayer service for teen-agers at the Wedgewood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas.

      I like your thought process!
