Concealed weapons in church sparks debate

From The Quad Cities-

Emergency response training at a Bettendorf church on Tuesday turned into a debate on allowing churchgoers to carry concealed weapons.

The argument began during a segment that dealt with responding to active shooters. The event was held at St. John Vianney Catholic Church.

"I do not want parishioners bringing guns into my house of worship," said the Rev. Christine Isham, pastor of Edwards Congregational United Church of Christ, Davenport. "It's God's house. I'm a non-violent person. There has to be another way."

Ken Brown, a member of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, East Moline, and several others who spoke during the segment took a pro-concealed carry stance.
