Skip to comments.Guns donít belong in places of worship (Illiinois barf alert)

Houses of worship dont just accommodate religious gatherings. They also are places where deeply troubled people come to get help. If for no other reason than that, they should be off limits to guns.
Unfortunately, a state law rushed through in the closing days of the spring legislative session that allows the concealed carrying of guns also makes it legal to bring those firearms into places of worship. Thats an alarming prospect that needs to be rectified as quickly as possible.

The stupid is strong with this one. He both managed to introduce a non-sequitir and anthropomorphize an inanimate object ("off limits to guns") in the same opening sentence.
“They also are places where deeply troubled people come to get help.”
If true, then all the more reason to keep one’s weapon close.
He’s making the case to carry but is too dumb to realize it.
Of course they don’t want Christians with guns, so one day the Marxist Atheist can come in and kill us....and you know....so they won’t be out gunned!
Go to H&LL commies....
So police have to leave their guns outside?
They also are places where deeply troubled people come to act out, sometimes violently, sometimes with weapons.
I guess there should be a law requiring non-troubled, nonviolent parishioners to be sitting ducks.
A house of worship with no guns allowed is seen as a target rich environment to liberals moslems gays and other evil people.
A much shorter editorial would be a complete list of all the places the Sun-Times editorial board feels guns SHOULD be legal to carry.
Remember, this is the same paper that a few weeks ago fired its entire photography staff and told its reporters to take pictures and video for publication on their cell phones.
they can’t staff a newsroom but they know what’s best for society.
They are more targeted by the deeply weird, as places to inflict damage. That’s why my pastor has to keep an armed protective agent at his side throughout worship service, with others stationed throughout the church. The congregation is fully capable to taking care of itself as well. Slap leather in this house of God, and you will be shown the error of your ways.
The Sun-Times conveniently forgets several incidents where armed parishioners ended a violent attack in the sanctuary. One big one was in Colorado Springs.
Don't kid yourself; a tyrannical state always takes control of the churches (or simply liquidates them) as soon as they can. It is going to happen here very soon unless something changes. And the pretext is going to be "civil rights".
New Life Church shooting
At about 1:00 p.m. MST (20:00 UTC), thirty minutes after the 11:00 a.m. service had ended at New Life Church, Murray opened fire in the church parking lot, shooting the Works family and Judy Purcell. Murray then entered the building’s main foyer where he shot Larry Bourbonnais, hitting him in the forearm. At this point, Jeanne Assam opened fire on Murray with her personally owned concealed weapon. Police say that after suffering multiple hits from Assam’s gun, Murray fatally shot himself.
“They also are places where deeply troubled people come to get help. If for no other reason than that, they should be off limits to guns.”
This is where the anti-gun crowd fails badly. If a “deeply troubled” person wants to bring a gun no law saying they can’t is going to stop them.
The happy people need guns to protect themselves from the unhappy people.
Let the gun-grabbers start frisking’em at the mosque entrance and see how far that gets them.
Well, unless it’s a church run by some foul mouthed little fleeb who screams “God DAMN America” from the pulpit. Those churches are juuuuuuust fine. Especially with the current resident of the white house.
And grocery stores are where deeply troubled people go to get food.
Of course. I don’t expect that we will get better than Zero in the future. In the New Normal good is evil and evil is good. Because the IRS will be the vanguard of the forces the Regime deploys against Christians, churches should be studying ways to divest themselves of paid staff and property so that they can survive underground and under the radar. And, IMHO, they need to gun up. There will be invasions of their sanctuaries both by “official” JBTs and by the opportunistic hoi polloi.
