I had attended the Church Security Classes that our local Sheriff had sponsored a couple of years ago when I was a Trustee and we Trustee's amongst ourselves were armed even though the Church elders didn't like the idea. I understood the reasoning, but it was legal bullcrap, they were more scared of lawyers than of of some psycho getting into the Church and start shooting the members of the congregation. That was part of the reason I had purchased the M&P Shield that I have.
I had shamelessly clipped this From Ox and Dave Morris and their blog, I get email notifications about shooting classes and once the ammo shortages start easing up, I want to get more training, but right now I am afraid to go do any real shooting that involves a lot of ammo usage because I can't replace what I will expend, although the Sheriff's office where Mack hangs his hat and Pudge had raved about, I would like to attend.
Well meaning people have said that guns don’t belong in churches, but today I'm going to point out why I believe the Bible says that it is appropriate to have an armed congregation
