Gun bill stymied in Senate

Posted By on Thu, Mar 31, 2011 at 6:35 AM

I missed the news yesterday that the Senate Judiciary Committee lacked votes necessary to approve the House bill allowing guns in church. Several pastors testified for presence of concealed weapons because of potential for violence. Which, it might be worth noting, is an argument you could make for every venue of human contact. Count me in the number, however small and out of step, who feel safer with fewer guns in public places, not more.
