My wife is a Witness and she at this point in time is not comfortable carrying a gun due to the fact that they do not believe in violence. Let alone carry in her Kingdom Hall.

However, Jehovah's Witness' pacifism is limited in my experience to humans - they have no compunction against hunting animals in the true form of you eat what you kill.

I find the hypocrisy in that she doesn't mind depending on me protecting her and the girls and engaging in whatever violent acts that may require. I would do them willingly without reserve, however I still find that expectation hypocritical.

I am unsure whether I would carry at her church. My gut would say yes.... but my gut isn't the only thing to consider in that equation.

I think that property rights of business' is one thing - but to restrict my rights to carry is another. There should be a middle ground.

If they are going to maintain the 30.06 statute - then they should pass a bill requiring establishments to have a secure place to lock up my firearm while doing business there. Thats only fair, if they want us to respect their rights, they should respect ours.

However for property privately owned by say a home or such, then I completely agree that it is their perogative to restrict who carries what, and when, on their turf.


Edit - Dang, beat me to it Nitrogen!!
