I can't find the thread on carrying to church so I started another one. I did not tell dh or kids just to see if I could get away with it. On the way home ds asked if I was carrying 'baby' and dh said no. He didn't know so I didn't say anything at the time. When we got home I showed dh that I was carrying. haha

The kids and I will be taking a road trip up to north Alabama in two weeks. Now that I have the license I'll be carrying while driving through Georgia and then while I'm in AL for a week. I've got to say I've driven alone and many times with just the kids but knowing I'm carrying my guns with me makes my dh feel better about us being on the road for such a long distance.

Guess this license will get its use in the first few weeks I've had it.

Have a safe trip and stay aware of things around you. I carry to church and have for years. I have never said anything to anybody. If anybody knows they are not saying anything about it. I really don't think my pastor would care one way or the other as long as I don't broadcast it to the other folks.

The pastor son of a good friend of mine asked me to carry to and in his church. He is in the process of obtaining a CCW but has yet to decide on an appropriate firearm to carry in church and elsewhere.

The Colorado church shootings of a year or so ago and a recent, local (somewhere in the southeast) shooting of a pastor by a grieving relative/friend at a graveside service (spare me the symbolism in that!) spooked this gentleman greatly. Can't say that I blame him in that.

Anyway, I carry in church and everywhere else -- remember, Don't Ask, Don't Tell -- so asking me to carry in his church was a bit redundant. I just didn't let him know that.

Be safe.

Have a day. Bang Gunley

Wish I could carry in church when my permit gets here (about >30 days). We meet in a Middle School so no carrying for non-LEO's. Bummer.
Does anyone know if it's not during school hours and it's your place of business if this would make a difference where the law is concerned. Or am I barking up the wrong tree :smack

Incident at church yesterday

I was packing yesterday and near the end of the pastor's sermon a person decided he was going to try and sit in the front row next to the staff members. An alert usher diverted the guy out and a few others helped defuse the situation. :smack The head usher (a friend of mine) went to investigate as did the local PBSO parishoner. After service I talked to the head usher and he said the guy was goofy and was "challenging" the church folk who were dressed up vs. him in shorts and a ball cap. I don't have a problem with the way the guy was dressed but his actions were "out of order" during the service that's why he was ushered away. As there was no immediate threat, me and my M&P sat quietly aware of the dealing and finished service uneventful. AMEN

PS Have a good trip. Stay armed--- stay aware---stay safe

I wonder how they look at it if the church has Sunday school, or vacation Bible school?
No indication that SS or VBS are a problem.
Schools, private or public, are a different issue in the eyes of the State.

However, IANAL. I do not play one on tv (anti-porn :rolf ).
I am a preacher. I know absolutely nothing useful about much of anything. :laughing

I've started packing at church as well. I'm also on the technical team and sit in the back behind a glass wall. I usually get to see all that is going on in the sanctuary. I also go to a fairly big church so there are a couple of LEO's that attend. I know one personally.
