1. Dear God how many threads are we going to do about this?
Can everyone please relax about the fact that this church wants to have an open carry day? This is the seventh thread about it and people are freaking out for no reason.

33. Technically you are supposed to look and see if a thread has already been started on the subject.
We'll let it slide since you are new.

8. Did you even read the link?
It's cold range carry, meaning the guns are unloaded and secured in a holster. How exactly are they going to fire an unloaded, holstered gun?

14. They can also bring a gun in their pocket on normal days
But they don't. The mere presence of a gun doesn't make people idiots.

17. Guns are not a sign of a bad place
This is a way to de-mystify firearms; from DU's reaction it sounds like we could all use some of that.

19. So you only go to airports?
Seriously, have you ever considered how many people you interact with in your daily life might be carrying?

anything.

10. Also, this isn't a church service; it's saturday evening.
Probably not much amen-ing beyond the prayer over the barbecue.

27. Obviously Scott Roeder believed in that.
Perhaps these nutcases need a little reminding.

6. I'm totally opposed to any restrictions on the ownership of firearms
But there is something about a church full of toothless armed hillbillies that tells me this could turn out to be comedy gold.

I'm betting more than one of the churchgoers has a live round in the chamber that he has forgot about.

7. If they could have carried guns
to church in the Old Testament, there probably would not have been a New one.
