Neither of those conditions have existed since the 1900s.
right, now we have radical terrorists, gangster's, and psychopaths, who, unlike the criminals of times past, have absolutely no respect for churches. and the local law enforcement now is stretched so thin that they only arrive on time to investigate the murders.
the truth is, you are no safer in a church that forbids weapons than you are in a public school or out on the street.
