    Yes, being a Christian Church does not disallow being armed. The state may, the proprietors may, but the church in general does not.

    Good people ought to be armed as they will, with wits and guns and The Truth. God Bless US Bitter Clingers. MOLON LABE It's more than merely arms.

    Might be better asked in the Arizona forum, unless you're just interested in the topic across the states.
    Here in Missouri it is legal, and I carry every service. Some churches request that you not carry, some request that it may remain concealed, but here it's not illegal. Conceal carry here is quite common in church. Never seen OC in the churches I've attended or visited.

    Greetings ISRAEL!

    As Nightmare and STLDaniel have already mentioned, law says not to do so, church may not oppose it and may actually encourage carry. OC/CC is likely up to the discretion of the pastor/clergy/etc.

    That said, I used to OC at the church I went to until some hoplophobes raised a ruckus. The higher ups then told me I should CC, though said hoplophobes wanted me to stop altogether.

    Stopped attending over a year ago, to be honest. The folks there didn't seem to be too fond of practicing what they preached.

    I carry to defend my loved ones; Desensitizing and educating are secondary & tertiary reasons. Anything else is unintended.

    “Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” - Frederic Bastiat
