Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The North Carolina General Assembly on Tuesday finalized another bill seeking to expand gun rights " this time in churches " and will send it to Gov. Roy Cooper, who vetoed a bill containing the same idea a year ago. The Senate agreed 30-19 to House changes to Republican legislation that would allow members or visitors at churches that meet on private school campuses to carry a handgun if they have a concealed weapons permit.

Which of the Governor's reasons for vetoing it do you find stupid?

Guns in church seems so sacreligious. Goes against the beattitude.

Yeah, but you never know when some confederate flag waving nut job like Dylan Roof might show up.

Why can't that extremely narrow group of organizations govern that for themselves, boaz?

I don't see why Boaz doesn't love this. It isn't a democracy, so the minority party gets to call the shots. Can't have mob rule.

I thought churches were free from government interference. In other words, I did not know laws could be made to prohibit guns within them. I find this case interesting.

@#5 ... I don't see why Boaz doesn't love this. ...

Based upon the lack of comments from the boaz alias so far, I think it is just trolling here.

I'd rather the alias show me to be wrong, though.

I think the more guns in Churches, the better. Guns are more likely to kill their owners or family members. I would like to see mandatory gun possession in Churches.

@#6 ... Guns are more likely to kill ...

If you look at gun deaths per capita instead of gun deaths per state or per area, some interesting aspects arise.

North Carolina is jealous that Dylan Roof decided to exercise his Second Amendment rights in a South Carolina church.

#6 This is about allowing guns on private school grounds that let congregations use their facilities, not in stand alone churches.

Why the ---- should the government be regulating gun policy for a private entity? That private entity should decide if they will let people enter with guns.

It's not different than me deciding if I will let someone bring a gun into my home.

What kind of idiocy is this?! You can't carry in my house without my permission. I'll kick you off my property. If your pastor says no guns in his church, no guns in his church. As I understand it, even a business can do that to a CC holder - I can tell you to leave without any reason at all.

Because these are school grounds and guns aren't allowed on school grounds public or private. So even though schools aren't in session guns are banned when churches are.

I'm not really clear on what would happen if this law passes but the school still says no guns on our grounds. Would the private property owner win or would the law allow the church to override the will of the owner. If that happens could the owner stop renting to the church or would that be religious discrimination?

#14 Private property rights are so fundamental they aren't even in the Constitution. Like the right a right to breathe, for instance. Nobody told Luther he could fart, okay? I'm pretty sure that trumps everything.

Because the GOP is a Death Cult.

It would be so much easier if these clowns could just leave their gun in the car for an hour. How scared are they, anyway?

Guns are their pseudo penis. How else are they going to flex in church.
Church is boring unless your can fantasize about killing someone.

He has a right to remain silent. He's big on rights.
