    We do a basic handgun safety class three times a year at my church as well. There are lots of folks interested in learning more about self protection. I think its a great idea!

    better to be pro-active than a victim. No 10 ? an armed citizenry can change that for the better,and cleanse the gene pool at the same time. Good for them !

    Not a bad idea... churches host cooking classes and boy scout / girl scout troops. Why not? Plus, churches, just like schools, should have an emergency plan for dealing with violence.

    Growing up, my mother told me the story of how one of her friends was at a church where a shooting occurred... the church had been helping to counsel a battered woman and her children, providing both financial and legal assistance. Despite a restraining order, the abusive husband walked in the middle of a Sunday morning service and shot up the pastor as he was preaching in cold blood. More people would have been hurt if it wasn't for several ushers tackling him... I think she also mentioned an off-duty cop happened to be attending that day and was able to radio immediately for back-up while they restrained the shooter.
