Concealed Carry in Churches




According to concealedcarry.com, concealed carry is banned in only two states, Nebraska and Louisiana. It requires permission from a church leader in seven states, Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, and South Carolina. In the other 41 states, you have the right to conceal carry in church just as you do in other private property.


The church may ban the practice, just as you may in your own home. But there is no law to prevent you from exercising the Second Amendment in church.

From Wyoming Statute 6-8-104:
...
(t) No person authorized to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to paragraphs (a)(ii) through (iv) of this section shall carry a concealed firearm into:
...
(viii) Any place where persons are assembled for public worship, without the written consent of the chief administrator of that place;

So the map as show is wrong in the case of Wyoming.

The main problem carrying concealed is it's uncomfortable and you must worry about breaking the law if you print or expose it in Texas. I rarely carry unless I may end up in a bad area. Guess even a church worship is now considered dangerous.

I am one of those people that ended with having only one gun. Expert level, but even my custom combat .45 commander is heavy after a short while.

How are any of these prohibitions or regulations not classified as examples of the state meddling in the church's business?
