gun laws

Editorial | Don’t change law on churches and concealed carry

Sometimes, rights collide. Our rights to freely worship and to self-protection should not.

But bills in the Missouri Assembly would eliminate the need for people to obtain permission before carrying concealed firearms into a church or other religious space. If this bill were to pass, churches wishing to prohibit firearms would have to post signs in their sacred spaces specifically prohibiting guns.

Imagine this: a big sign reading, "NO FIREARMS ALLOWED," next to an image of Jesus Christ at a church entrance.
