North Carolina Approves Bill That Would Allow Concealed Carry At Church

The North Carolina state house approved a bill Monday that would allow people to carry a concealed firearm at certain Churches. The bill is in response to the concern of many Church leaders regarding security, reports CBS. But many pastors are of a different opinion. 

“Having guns in a Sunday School. What value is that?” Rev. Richard Edens of United Church if Chapel Hill said. Republican Representative Rena Turner says a local church’s leaders approached her after the shooting at Emanuel AME in Charleston.

They said their security team would like to be able to carry a handgun. “And, after that shooting in Charleston, they were just very concerned about their safety and feeling vulnerable,” Turner said.
