Arkansas House passes legislation striking churches as gun-free zones (concealed carry win)
Arkansas Legislature ^ | 31 JAN 13 | dcbryan1

Posted on 01/31/2013 1:05:18 PM PST by DCBryan1

A House committee this morning endorsed Sen. Bryan King's (R) bill to allow guns in church, if the churches approve, which means final action is close at hand. Gov. Mike Beebe (D) says he'll sign it.


TOPICS: Extended News
KEYWORDS: banglist; guncontrol; rkba; secondamendment
Looks like the Republicans have not only gotten the blue dog democrats to go along with them, Gov. Beebe (D) said he would sign the bill striking churches as one of the seventeen (17) prohibited places for concealed carry.

I hope Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) is listening!

Basically, all churches have to put up notices:

(19) (A) Any place at the discretion of the person or entity exercising control over the physical location of the place by placing at each entrance to the place a written notice clearly readable at a distance of not less than ten feet (10) that “carrying a handgun is prohibited”.

(B) (i) If the place does not have a roadway entrance, there shall be a written notice placed anywhere upon the premises of the place.

How can a government, any government, make any laws in respect to churches anyway? It would seem to me to be unconstitutional on its face........

That would be like passing a law telling churches their baptismal had to hold a minimum number of gallons or that the pulpit had to be exactly 4.756 feet high..........

Atop the steeple or under the kitchen sink?..............

The places that want to be “gun free” zones should put up signs that read, “Criminal Friendly Zone”.

When this passed in Virginia, the Pastor mentioned she thought the subject should be put up for discussion on the Vestry agenda. A senior member just looked at her (everyone else also had) and said “you don’t want to go there.” It took her being told that more than once, by more than one member before she finally understood that she WASN’T going there.

So what I want to know is when is the state legislature going to pass a law protecting Arkansans from unconstitutional federal actions to infringe upon our Second Amendment right, like some of the other states are doing?
