    Is there a Pro-Gun church?

    The Catholics have finally shown their true colors. It was bad when I had to hear the anti-scott walker b.s. in the Sunday flyer but I gave them a pass - now it seems that their politics have shown brightly through the hems of their cloaks post-Sandy Hook. That's the end of it for me.

    So to you religious types out there - is there a Christian sect that is pro gun that I'm not seeing?

    Southern Baptists seem good at least in this neck or the woods. I remember our pastor telling the congregation that he had no problem handing out his personal death penalty to anyone who would threaten his home or family.

    Independent Baptists churchs are normally pro freedom and firearms use.

    My church is not posted, but I don't know if that necessarily means they're "pro-gun".

    Kind of a don't ask don't tell thing from my perspective.

    I don't believe they have any campuses in your area but here's their website in case you're able to find something similar.

    You don't know the Pastor and the board members enough to know where they stand.

    Heck I take my Pastor and deacons out shooting.

    I don't care to know them well enough. I go there for the Word of God, nothing more.

    They do not prohibit me from carrying, that says enough to me at this time.

    Our church is not posted but would prefer that you conceal. The senior pastor has a CCL as do a lot of the members.

    We have hosted the free WCI CCL classes and will host more next year.

    Definitely try a Baptist church. In many of them, the heads of families are "strongly encouraged" to conceal carry as part of their responsibility to protect the flock. PM me if you want a specific recommendation for Point.

    Like a lot of places, I don't think that the lack of a sign should be taken to mean that they are in favor of people carrying. Just keep it concealed and don't advertise that you are carrying and everything should be okay.

    I usually attend a 'Presbyterian' church... Its 'presbyterian' in name only... Biblically its very conservative. The pastor is a gun guy also...dont know if he has his CCL or not.
    When Im in Madison I attend an Evangelical Free Church... neither of which are posted.

    Mine is an Evangelical Free Church as well.

    All of them are independent and all decisions are made at the individual church level.

    Angry The Presbyterian Church (USA) is anti-gun

    Not only do they tell their congregations to not allow guns in church, but they actively campaign for gun control. Look at this pamphlet by the Presbyterian Church to understand how rabidly anti-gun they are. It sounds like it was written by the Brady Bunch with all the usual half-truths and false statistics. Here is an excerpt:
    E. The Call to Action
    God has provided us with the elements to be agents of change in the world. The change needs
    to be comprehensive: we need to address the idolatry of guns, the violence that permeates our
    culture, our obsessions with personal rights over public responsibility, the practices of
    widespread and indiscriminate sale of military style weapons, as well as the legislation necessary
    to regulate the accessibility and sale of military weapons disguised as “sporting guns.” We must
    keep our “eyes on the prize,” of preventing gun violence and the unnecessary deaths and injuries
    that result. Enough blood has been spilled. We affirm that through good organizational effort,
    animated by the passion for justice that comes to the people of God through the Holy Spirit, gun
    violence can be dramatically reduced.
    May our Church re-dedicate itself to this crucial task.
    Dave
    45ACP-For when you care enough to send the very best-
    Fight for "Stand Your Ground " legislation!

    WI DA Gerald R. Fox:
    "These so-called 'public safety' laws only put decent law-abiding citizens at a dangerous disadvantage when it comes to their personal safety, and I for one am glad that this decades-long era of defective thinking on gun issues is over..."

    Remember: Don't make old People mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

    There were quite a few firearms enthusiast at the catholic church I used to attend. Although the church had a standing policy of never preaching political issues from the pulpit, except for abortion gay marriage and opposing execution which were based on doctrine. I see no established catholic doctrine against guns, but I haven't been to mass in forever and ive been considering attending a non-denomination church anyway
    they love our milk and honey, but they preach about some other way of living, when they're running down my country man they're walkin' on the fightin side of me

    Do you have cit for this.


    Handling guns in a safe manner isn’t a problem. I personally have no trouble showing other firearms enthusiasts guns that they haven't seen before.

    I have done so thousands of times even ay church one can walk out side and have a safe environment do to so. Especially when the church is on 10 acres in the country.

    Rules at our church, guns stay holstered unless needed for self defense or defense of others. If you want to show a friend, you must do it off the property.

    Your church is on 10 acres? That would be enough for a shooting range I think!

    Keep in mind there are 2 main Presbyterian Churches... PCA and PCUSA... PCA tends to be much more conservative in many ways...

    As for Baptists...there are MANY varieties of them as well...

    I'll concur with these two. At the independent baptist church I attend, they seem to be fairly friendly to carrying. I can confirm that at least one former attendee carried there on a regular basis; and there are probably others as well. As a matter of fact, I didn't initially carry in church when I first got my carry permit. When this came up in conversation, our ASSISTANT PASTOR asked me why I didn't and basically encouraged me to begin carrying in church.

    I will admit, though, that this is one location where I have always carried concealed, not openly. And, outside immediate family, I can count on one hand the number of people that know about it.

    We have shot clays there and some 22lr.

    There use be a national guard range less the a half mile away but I see they took the bearms and shooting positions out this summer. It was for years one of the two place in the state the guards used to shoot. Ft. Mc Coy the other.
