Because the Episcopal conference of the Catholic Church in the United States keeps making churches Gun Free Zones.

And we cannot expect the Feds to help secure Catholic Churches, but just the opposite.


We are targets:

(U//FOUO) FBI Richmond assesses the increasingly observed interest of racially or ethnically
motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) in radical-traditionalist Catholic (RTC)a
ideology almost certainly presents opportunities for threat mitigation through the exploration of new avenues for
tripwire and source development.

I fear we will see a mass casualty event in a church soon enough, just like it has been happening in other continents for decades.

If you do worship, do have faith in the Lord.

…..but keep one hand on your weapon because Him I trust, anybody else needs to keep hands where I can see them.

Spread the love

  1. some in the firearms world say this about “gun free zones”- you might be in trouble, but you will be alive…

  2. I read your headline as not going to Massachusetts rather than a church service. 😆

    I try to avoid MA, but my children still live there.

    1. The ‘pope’ is no longer listening to God.

      The phrase ‘tickling their ears’ comes to mind.

      The Baptist church we occasionally attend usually has at least one plain clothes off duty officer there, and the pastor occasionally teases me about having a ‘lump’ under my jacket. (No, it really doesn’t show..)

      Plus I know of at least two other people that also pack.

  3. It seems to me as an outsider (Protestant, we’re used to ignoring what the Pope says), that American Roman Catholics are pretty selective about how they heed the pronouncements of their hierarchy.

    Unless there’s a metal detector at the door, I would (and have) carry anyway. Done right, a snub in the front pocket with the right pocket holster is close to invisible.

    The whole thing with the feds keeping a watchful eye on the TradCaths is worrying.

    1. I agree, certainly if you live in a state where such signs have no force of law. As I understand, NH is one such state — while the property owner can tell you to leave if you’re seen carrying, that in itself is not a legal issue. It would become one only if you refuse to leave, in which case it’s simply trespass. It’s more problematic in benighted states where the law can go after you for ignoring such a sign. I think I was told Texas is one such state.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
