One year after murder of IL pastor, more can be done to defend churches against killers

Missouri law on this issue could be further relaxed. If I am reading HB 1232 correctly, passage of the bill would mean that even people without concealed carry permits could openly carry a firearm in a church. Given my aversion to the licensing of fundamental rights, such as the right to an effective means of self-defense, I see this bill as a step in the right direction.

Even Illinois, of all places, is considering legislation that would give churches some degree of latitude in defense against killers. HB 5690 would permit churches to hire armed security guards, with some qualifications. [More]
