Mississippi Church Protection Act Now Law of the Land

JACKSON, MISS– The Mississippi Church Protection Act, which would bring the church under the castle doctrine, is now law.

The bill, authored by Representative Andy Gipson, who is also a pastor, was motivated by the church shooting in South Carolina.
