Beebe told reporters Monday that he signed into law the bill that would leave it up to churches and other places of worship to decide whether to allow the concealed weapons.
The concealed handguns would be banned at churches unless they specifically allowed it. Beebe told reporters that a companion bill filed Friday addresses the worries raised by some clergy.
The recently filed House bill would require churches allowing concealed weapons to post signs notifying visitors about the decision.
I believe this is a great move that our governor has made and surprisingly he is a Democrat, so liberals cannot say this is "right-wing nut job." Ha!
Anyoo, great news for all gun owners in Arkansas and those that attend church.
Living in the south has taught me one thing, most of the men around here are hardcore gun and bow hunters and they take pride in how well they care for their weapons, protecting their families and so forth. And believe it or not, lots of women are the same way. Which shocked me, at first, but I am used to it now. Women are just as capable as men handling weapons.
I know there are some that are not responsible but they are rare, thank goodness.
