4. lower court upheld Georgia ban on guns in Churches

SC did not intervene.

Sounds OK to me. If you think you need a gun in your place of worship there may just be something wrong with your philosophies.

6. What kind of law

 

Is this a Georgia State Statute? If so, I'm having problems finding the law. Or is it some sort of administrative rule?

Reports are vague on this stuff.

14. If concealed carry has been passed at the state level,

why should churches be any different than any other business? Any church can disallow people to carry on church property, why shouldn't the individual churches be allowed to decide just like any other business?

Furthermore, states can and do legislate where concealed carriers can carry. Several states do not allow carrying in churches.

11. They probably just meant to say Go Read The Heller decision.

 

Majority opinion in that case holds that gun limits outside the home are not unconstitutional.

The idiocy of there being an individual right of ACCESS to a gun and ammunition cries out for reversal, however. In the voices of slain schoolchildren.

16. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said

"If thy neighbor shooteth thee in the ass, turn the other cheek."

9. What did the law state?

I should think that any establishment (church or otherwise) that wanted to prohibit the carrying of firearms would be free to do so.

17. Interestingly, this was a 1st Amendment rather than 2nd Amendment case

There's never been any doubt that states have the power to declare gun-free zones in public spaces (Heller and McDonald affirm this explicitly).

This case was about whether declaring churches to be gun free zones violated the establishment/free exercise clauses. Georgia court said no, SCOTUS refused to accept the appeal.
