A few weeks ago, I walked in to church and saw this addition to the all of the outside doors at Resurrection.
The addition is the little sign in the lower right hand corner – no guns. It is my understanding that this is in response to a recent change in the concealed carry law in Kansas. It is legal to carried a concealed weapon in Kansas with a permit. It is my understanding that previously this law included churches as a place where a concealed weapon could not be carried even with a permit. However, this has changed and unless a sign is posted those who legally carry a concealed firearm could bring it in the building.
I am not sure what I think about the signs being up. On one hand, it does ensure that we comply with the law if we do not want those licensed to carry a concealed weapon to bring it to church. On the other hand, if someone is planning ill intentions in the church I do not think that they are not going to pay attention to the sign.
What do you think?
