Jindal Signs 'Guns-In-Church' Law
You can't worship Jesus unarmed?
If you're like most Americans, there's probably
been a time in your life when you've been sitting in church,
listening to a particularly ennui-inducing homily or enduring another warbly
version of "Holy Holy Holy" and thought,
"Man! I could really reach for some steel right

Well, in Louisiana, Governor Bobby Jindal has
recently signed into law a measure that would allow you

one allowing guns to be carried into houses of
The bill would authorize persons who qualified
to carry concealed weapons having passed the training and
background checks to bring them to churches,
mosques, synagogues or other houses of worship as part of a security force.

to carry guns to service will not rile up Louisiana's paranoiacs at all!
Some restrictions apply. The "head of the religious
institution" would have to "announce verbally or in weekly newsletters
or bulletins that there will be individuals armed
on the property as members of the security force," and those lucky individuals
would have to receive "eight hours of tactical
training each year."
Eight hours of training? Why so much?
These guys intend to spray lead in a house of worship.
Wouldn't God super-naturally guide those bullets
towards the proper scumbag?
