The most remarkable recent illustration of this trend could be Georgia, where a state-level campaign has begun invoking the Tucson shootings to advance legislation that would permit firearms in churches, synagogues, mosques and the like.

Anyone interested in the guns-in-churches issue would do well to view this article from Church Mutual Insurance:

I've selected the following quotes for appropriate criticism and/or mockery:

"Allow only law enforcement officers to serve on your armed security force."

"There is no training program a civilian can attend to be allowed to serve on your armed security force."

"Post notices that you are using armed security officers."

"Create and publicize that weapons are not allowed to be carried on your grounds by anyone other than your security officers."

"There’s no substitute for the experience that a law enforcement officer gets on the street dealing with people on a regular basis."

"This type of on-the-job experience cannot be duplicated in a classroom or training exercise."

The idea that ordinary people cannot be trusted to defend their own lives is repulsive to me.
