Carry Your in Church? Hell, YES!

Kevin Michalowski wrote this blog post a while ago and I couldn’t resist stealing the title and his opening paragraph:

Don’t get all upset with me about that headline. I know this is a family publication. But if you are talking about religion, you have to have some concept of Heaven and Hell. I was just being emphatic, not trying to lead anyone astray. But, I digress.

How long have you carried in your house of worship?

I had a talk with my minister the week that I got my CCL. I asked him how he viewed carrying in Church, and was gratified to find out that he was pro-2A. That was a little over a year ago, and I have been (discreetly) carrying in my Church ever since.

I always carry in church. I know others who carry, too. We have a Safety Team - the intent is not to fight back, necessarily, but all team members are expected to act more as eyes and ears to take action before something happens. Not all who carry as part of the Safety Team. I do not know if all Safety Team members (I am not…yet) carry.

Having a team to be aware and protect the congregation as they focus on the service is important as well. Security teams don’t need to all be armed to be incredibly helpful and life saving.
