Arkansas gov. signs bill permitting guns in church

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe has signed into law a measure allowing concealed handguns in churches and says he believes a follow-up bill addresses the concerns that some pastors had about the new law.

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 about the decision.

Agreed. It's great that someone is thinking, but my pastor/congregation should already be able to decide what is good for us.

Non-denominational, and others may but Catholic pastors, for example, don't have sole authority to make such decisions.
