Churchgoers renew calls to carry after Texas shooting

From The Washington Times-

Nathan Price says his concealed gun doesn’t make him feel safer in church.

The gun does make him feel more prepared should something happen.

“I’m a big believer that violence can happen anywhere at anytime,” said Price, a former Marine and firearms trainer. “If you’re not carrying a firearm, you’re not going to be able to engage anyone causing harm around you.”

The Wichita Eagle reports that Price is one of an unknown number of Kansans who carry a gun in church. After a man fatally shot 26 people in Sutherland Springs’ First Baptist Church earlier this month, some pastors and congregants across the nation have renewed calls to carry.

For some, carrying a gun in church is a way to prepare and protect in uncertain times. For others, it’s antithetical to the very purpose or church.
