Church gun bill stopped

Posted By on Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 11:51 AM

After an hour of debate, the Senate Judiciary Committee today refused to endorse the bill to allow concealed weapons in churches, currently prohibited. Sen. Jerry Taylor moved for a do-pass, but only Sen. Ruth Whitaker joined in support, with four five votes needed from the eight-member committee. The motion failed on a voice vote. Sens. Jim Luker, Sue Madison and Hank Wilkins all spoke in opposition to the bill.

How about that?

The sponsor can take another crack at the committee.
