Mississippi Law Allows Churches Members to Carry Guns

The legislation was proposed in wake of the June 17 Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church shootings in Charleston, S.C.

CHR Comment: Andrew Gipson, the legislator who proposed the measure, is a Baptist pastor. The Mississippi Police Chiefs Association expressed concern that the measure would lower the standards for carrying firearms.
