Arkansas AG Supports Current Church Gun Ban



09/30/2009

Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has stated publicly that he thinks a court would uphold the current Arkansas law that forbids all people, even concealed-carry permit-holders, from bringing guns into churches.

McDaniel is responding to an opinion request from state Rep. Beverly Pyle, who proposed earlier this year amending the law to allow people to carry guns into churches. The bill was defeated in a Senate committee but could resurface.

McDaniel based his opinion chiefly on the fact that the regulation is not unique to churches but includes all houses of worship.
