SHOW-ME DECLARATION FROM MISSOURI CATHOLIC BISHOPS BLASTING 'LIMITLESS' CONCEALED CARRY BILL!!!



Roundup tonight of what could be a crisis of conscience for Catholic gun rights supporters . . .

The Missouri legislature should let stand the governor’s veto of a bill that would allow concealed carry of firearms without a permit, the state’s Catholic bishops have said.

Deets:

“Catholic Church teaching recognizes the right to self-defense as a way of preserving one’s life and in defense of others in the face of an imminent threat,” the Missouri Catholic Conference said. “We encourage Missouri citizens of good will, however, not to fall prey to the notion that we are somehow safer as individuals and as a society if everyone is always and everywhere armed.”

The conference statement was signed by all the state’s bishops.

The bishops said the current concealed carry permit process is “reasonable and prudent,” noting such steps as a background check and eight hours of formal training for permit applicants. The training includes instruction in loading, cleaning, storing, and discharging of firearms and lessons about the lawful and appropriate use of force.

Senate Bill 656 would decriminalize carrying concealed weapons without a permit. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed the bill June 27, which passed the State House by a vote of 114 to 36 and the State Senate by a 24-8 vote. Lawmakers can consider in September whether to sustain or override the veto, though the initial majorities are large enough to override it.

And this is an appropriate place to take a pause for Sunday night and contemplate the best intentions of Holy Mother Church Vs. the preservation of the U.S. Constitution and Bill Of Rights.

You decide . . .

Heard about this earlier in the week and can't believe that they haven't seem more pushback from it yet.

The bishops have more than enough problems in their own house lately but now they want to play God with CCW.

No thanks.

I'll keep my gun and send my donation check in the mail.

The lib media thinks this is big news because it supports their attack on the 2nd amendment. The Catholic "leadership" also think that homosexuality, abortion, birth control and divorce are sins. Question, Why isn't the lib media talking about the church's position on these issues?

Just another sign that most Catholics and all religious people are hypocrites.

The group that tries to hide the child rapers comes out saying guns are bad.

I say they are afraid the next time they get caught with their dicks in a little boys ass, that Daddy or Mommy who is maybe carrying a gun might just blow their ass clean to hell.

Wow, Catholics really are stupid.

Their brains are so small they can't even understand the data from Kansas.

But they get the history of gun control. They're smart enough to know that these laws help convict black people at higher rates than whites.

So do Catholics side with their stupid, racist leaders?

By the way, liberals will be crying just as hard in Missouri as Kansas about this. Wait, they are too stupid to realize it passed in Kansas. Every liberal I've talked to has forgotten about it.

Liberals are stupid.

You realize there are no problems with this law in Vermont, Maine, Idaho, Alaska, Arizona and Kansas, right?

One thing for sure. What Catholic Bishops have to say only counts and has credibility when it supports a libtard cause. Let the Catholics object to a libtard notion and their ass turns to villains in a New York minute.
