This bill was defeated in its original form earlier this month; however, a few changes were made and it has now passed the Louisiana House. This is a big win for churches in Louisiana who are wishing to implement a security team. Other states may have similar laws and this will help provide president for those states to use to their benefit. It is important to note that many states already allow for weapons to be carried in Houses of Worship with proper credentials.
