Make My Day Pastor: Bring Your Gun Into Church in Louisiana

Make My Day PastorThou Shall Not Kill. Unless it’s Time for Worship. The Times-Picayune reports:

Gov. Bobby Jindal has signed into law one of the more controversial bills from the recent legislative session, one allowing guns to be carried into houses of worship.

Jindal’s office said Tuesday the governor acted on the bill in the past few days after receiving it June 20.

Including the “gun-in-church” bill, House Bill 1272 by Rep. Henry Burns, R-Haughton, Jindal has signed into law 940 of the 1,067 bills the Legislature sent him, vetoed 12, and used his pen to line-item spending measures in four different budget bills.

Burns’ bill would authorize persons who qualified to carry concealed weapons having passed the training and background checks to bring them to churches, mosques, synagogues or other houses of worship as part of a security force.

    Good. I hope everyone takes a gun to church now. I can rest assured that I won't get caught in the crossfire.

    Sometimes, preachers get out of line with their sermons and you've got to shoot a mother fucker.

    Part of a “Security force?” Every redneck idiot will come to church armed, his security force including jesus and the ghost of Chuck Norris.

    Instead of “Use the Force, Luke,” Chuck will yell “Get the shotgun ready, Bubba, that guy is really a Muslim!”

    Ah, the true aspiratons of Christianity come to light. Feel the Love…..

    Pray for the peace of the lord and shoot anyone “who don't like it”.

    houses of worship will always be easy targets for violence,
    in todays world they have to be defended. just having a pistol wont be enough
    to stop a serious attack but relying on police to protect you is a fools bet, thankfully people are starting to realize this
