Evidently they don’t really trust God over in Virginia, so they need to arm themselves when they go to worship.
Virginians may carry weapons for personal protection into places of worship while religious services are being conducted, according to a new legal opinion by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R). Virginia law bars carrying weapons in churches and other worship houses while a religious meeting is being held unless a person has “good and sufficient reason.” In an opinion written Friday and posted on Cuccinelli’s Web site Monday, Cuccinelli indicates that the “right of self-defense lies at the heart of the right to keep and bear arms.” Therefore, he concludes that “carrying a weapon for personal protection constitutes a good and sufficient reason under the statute.”
I’m sure it’s in the Bible somewhere-
‘And lo, thou shalt bring thy gun to worship because thou mayest and mightest encounter someone seeking to kill thee and they family whilst thou dost pray. And so the Lord doth give thee permission to blast away until blood doth beplatter the sanctuary as in the days of old when the blood of the sacrifices sprayed across the bodies of the priests as they slit their throats. Yeah, the Lord almighty has grown weak and is incapable of seeing that you are kept safe and since he doth lack any skill or plan, thou art hereby authorized to butcher at will’ (2 Publicans 66:6)(KJV – The only version such persons as tote guns to church ever read).
