Let me start by saying that although I am not a member of the LDS Church I am extremely fond of the majority of their ideas. In saying this I must respectfully disagree with the Church trying to squash the bill currently in the Legislature that allows unlicensed carry in automobiles. The church claims that it is because they don't want guns on their property, specifically in SLC. As I see it they already have the law on their side to keep guns off their property since they are listed on the BCI website as prohibiting firearms. If the intent is to keep people from being able to drive past church property on a public street with a firearm in their vehicle I disagree. If one agrees with biblical teachings, the right to self defense is a God given right. Why the church would want to stop that I don't know. I am certainly interested in hearing your opinions on this.
