La. bishops: No guns in Catholic churches
Concealed handguns won't be allowed in Louisiana Catholic churches, despite a new state law allowing them.
Louisiana's Roman Catholic bishops discussed the issue when reviewing bills, and decided that if it became law they would tell pastors that concealed handguns would not be allowed in Catholic churches.
The law allows concealed handguns in churches, synagogues or mosques for those with a valid permit and training.
It also says those with authority over the church have the right to decide whether to allow weapons.
