    On 13 December, 2019, Lyda Krewson, the Mayor of St. Louis, Missouri, signed a city ordinance purported to ban guns from St. Louis City parks. It was passed by a vote of 16-2.

Bill No. 134 declared that St. Louis parks and recreation facilities are “child-care” facilities, and are, therefore, banned from allowing firearms in them. From Missouri state law allows adults to carry guns in the open, so the new law reclassifies the parks and recreation facilities as child-care facilities, where guns...

    Missouri is one of nine states where the government generally prohibits people from carrying firearms in church.

Nebraska allows a church to authorize an armed security team if the team members have carry permits and if written notice is given to church members.  Louisiana law is similar, but requires an extra eight hours of training every year.
