Guns in church bill dies in Arkansas Senate panel
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A state Senate panel has rejected a bill that would allow concealed handguns in Arkansas churches, a proposal that divided religious leaders.
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Beverly Pyle, R-Cedarville, told the panel after the vote that she may try again with the proposal.
"This is not a gun question, it is a question of religious freedom," Pyle said.
What? A question of "religious freedom"?! Why don't these reporters every ask the questions that would put these idiots on the spot? Why didn't someone ask "why don't you trust your god to protect you?" and see what their answer is?
Fortunately, there are those who can think rationally and though they don't ask the question about "where is your god?" but they legally reject the nonsense that guns are somehow a religious right.
State Sen. Sue Madison, D-Fayetteville, said she didn't see the need for the bill.
"I don't know of any church where the carrying of guns is a sacred belief intrinsic to the doctrine of that church, like the holding of communion might be," Madison said.
