Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition

As he does every Sunday, the Rt. Rev. Council Nedd II, an Anglican rector, will put on his collar and robes to offer Mass at his central Pennsylvania church. Now, he is considering wearing something else with his religious vestments: his handgun.

As a Pennsylvania state constable, Dr. Nedd can bring his gun just about everywhere—to the grocery store, to the park and to synagogues and other houses of worship, where he often acts as security. His church was the one place where he went unarmed.

    I have a friend who attends a mega-church in the Sacramento area. Last week I asked him what they do about security. He replied that it’s provided by church members who are active and retired law enforcement. CCW permit holders (which he is) can also carry on the premises (which he does).
    The Sheriff of Sacramento County is a shall-issue guy, so I’m guessing there are plenty of sidearms in that place on Sunday. PTL.

    I always carry.

    I go to church.

    Do the math.

    I guess he doesn’t trust his god to protect him like most of the ‘believers’ claim to.

    I’m a pastor. I carry. Every Sunday. Always. Going on six years. A good percentage of our people do, as well. We even host free concealed carry classes. In Wisconsin churches are not gun free zones.
