Packing A Pistol in the House of Praise: Gun in Church Bill Passes House Judiciary Committee

JACKSON, MISS– When you watch media coverage of a church shooting, you may be worried about if it could happen in your church. This bill may give you peace of mind. 

The house Judiciary committee has passed a bill that would allow the legal carry of guns into a house of worship. The “Mississippi Church Protection Act” is now headed to the house floor. It was penned by House Judiciary Chairman Andy Gipson, who is also a pastor.

The bill, not yet law, would call for a church to have a designated security committee. Members of that committee would be required to have a concealed carry permit in order to have their weapon in the church.

The bill has to pass the House and Senate before going to the governor’s desk to become law.
