Churches and Violence

We have been travelling throughout the United States for the last three years. We try to stay away from the big cities unless there is something special to see.
We have found there to be lots and lots of churches, all denominations, throughout the country. It also seems to be, the smaller the community, the more churches there are.
We travelled around Branson and over to Eurika Springs in the last two weeks. Dozens of churches. We try to attend an early service in case we are on the road again. Driving by the churches the parking lots are full of cars.
Got to wondering........why is there so much violence and are people really afraid to be without a firearm. We have even seen several people come to church with a handgun strapped to their waist.
Is the attitude only to live by the golden rule on Sunday????

I am sure there are many points of discussion around this and I do not want this to turn into the pros and cons of guns issue.

I have managed to live past 70 trying to treat people with kindness and respect. Just a fellow RVer that says HI to everyone I meet in the parks.

AND most of the violence in the country is in high density populations.

But I don't guess it can't happen anywhere.Better safe than sorry in the modern day USA

So you mention church and violence in the same sentence/thought. Then you mention you see lots of people with pistols on their hips in church. And then you asked if people only live by the golden rule on Sunday's. With all this it take it that you think all this violence comes from America's law abiding citizens who carry firearms as the real reason there is violence in America. I will just assume you are from Canada and don't understand or appreciate our 2A rights. Violence has no borders and I have no criminal record so I will carry my firearm wherever I am legally allowed to do so, including church.

This thread has quickly wandered into a general firearms discussion, which is not permitted by our rules.

From our rules;

Discussions about current or pending legislation or regulations, weapons and religion that directly pertain to RVing are acceptable but will be closed or removed if they wander off topic or become disruptive.
