    Are you not allowed to carry inside a church? I live in South Dakota where we are not prevented from carrying except in a jail, courthouse, grammar school or a bar. I carry in church every Sunday.

    I always wondered why some people find it wrong or immoral or odd or whatever to carry in church. Just wondering why you don't.

    Nope, CCW permit doesn't allow concealed carry inside churches.

    I'm confused buy how you worded this... Did you OC in Chili's? In the Chinese Resturant? I'm still hazy on the legalities of OC in resturants which serve alcohol such as Chili's and chinese or mexican resurants.

    It makes one wonder what the state legislature was thinking when they came up with the list of no-carry places. What is special about a church for example that you are not allowed to carry there? There are a number of examples where a legal firearm was useful in church.

    The same goes for restaurants. Is there no need to be armed while eating or something? It seems that the people we elect don't think very far.

    The polititions might be there photo-opting that they are good religious folk,
    and don't want to soil themselves in front of cameras.
    That or the racist reasons created in GA, CA, and elsewhere that the naacp
    has no problem with.

    I think it is almost funny that one constitutionally protected entity, can have
    another protected right denied to it.

    I guess you can't have ajoining rights.

    That's correct, Mark. That is absolutely what it says.

    On the other hand, there are exceptions. Just as the United States Supreme Court interpretation of 2A doesn't allow one to keep and bear any arms at all, the Louisiana Supreme Court has allowed for exceptions. By example, in State v. Amos, 343 So.2d 166, 168 (La. 1977) you'll find:

    "It is beyond question that the statute challenged in the instant case was passed in the interest of the public and as an exercise of the police power vested in the legislature. Its purpose is to limit the possession of firearms by persons who, by their past commission of certain specified serious felonies, have demonstrated a dangerous disregard for the law and present a potential threat of further or future criminal activity."

    Other states hold the same opinion, using public safety as the primary driver for such interpretation. The wide hole, of course, is what (or who) determines what (and who) is a risk to public safety.
