He's not really asking if the policy is rational, he wants to know where the policy applies.

Check out the thread here and post there with any more questions you have.

Here is the legal definition:

(13) "House of worship" means a church, temple, synagogue, mosque, or other building set apart primarily for the purpose of worship in which religious services are held and the main body of which is kept for that use and not put to any other use inconsistent with its primary purpose.

My personal interpretation is INSIDE LDS churches, and temples. I don't belive institutes or seminaries would qualify under this definition. Not sure what I think about tabernacles. Church prohibits guns in Conference Center during conference. Not sure about other times. Certainly a parking lot, church historic site, church owned property in general would not qualify. Only going into a building.

It would seem that since the LDSBC is inside the Triad Center (?) and not primarily used as a house of worship, it wouldn't fall under the law. I am not a lawyer, so take this for what it's worth.

Since it defines a "house of worship" as a "building", I would interpret that to not include the grounds or anything other than the particular... building.

:dunno:

I agree. However, as utahbagpiper once explained in an excellent thread over on OCDO, it's probably not a good idea to OC in locations that are likely to irritate the church leadership. The church doesn't use its political muscle often, but it's enormously powerful in Utah. If someone in the right position gets concerned, the law could be changed to extend the range of the restriction, and maybe make the punishment more severe (misdemeanor rather than infraction). CC shouldn't bother anyone, though.

My answer to all of this is who cares? Do I always obey the speed limit? :copcar:

Do you have any specific locations you are concerned about?

I conceal carry every time I visit Temple Square and surrounding church sites. I noticed the Metal Detectors at the Conference Center the last time I was there but they where out of the way and only used during Events in the Conference Center, not to screen tourists. I have carried inside the Tabernacle when I toured it also and when I sat down on the wooden bench the butt of my pistol hit the back of the bench and a very loud THUNK echoed inside the building (the acoustics were very impressive), but I blamed it on my wife crashing the stroller into the bench.
