Hi, I'm so sorry that I didn't get back to you. I really should come back to this site more often. I hope I'm not too late in answering your question. My best thought on this subject is that in light of the recent shootings on holy ground I find it inconceivable that someone would restrict your ability to defend your congregation, and of course, your own self. If not you then who? I have heard stories of doctors in ERs who carry. I see nothing wrong with that either. Sorry I have no cites for you.
