I don't know many churches that have armed security, except maybe the Vatican, and some offshoot cults.

This is a question that comes up frequently in other online fora that I watch.

It happens more often that you think. Often informally.

Well, technically here in Virginia it is illegal to carry during a worship service without a good and sufficient reason. The law however does not define what constitutes "good and sufficient". Interestingly enough carry is OK at other church functions even on church property. I was speaking with my pastor and a few of the elders about it a few years ago and they mentioned that they wouldn't have a problem if someone licensed to carry, chose to do so even during worship.

Personally my definition of "good and sufficient" means "whenever I am awake".

Just guessing. You’re PCA too, aren’t you?
