The video shows Raphael Warnock speaking against the Safe Carry Protection Act, which Georgia lawmakers enacted in 2014. The act expanded the number of places law-abiding citizens could carry guns for self-defense in the hopes of reducing the number of gun-free zones, thereby reducing the number of soft targets available to criminals and/or demented attackers.
The video, posted by the NRA, shows Warnock saying, “Somebody decided that they had a bright idea to pass a piece of legislation that will allow for guns and concealed weapons to be carried in churches.”
Warnock laughed, as did others on the video.
He went on to mock the idea of carrying a gun in a church meeting, suggesting such meetings are the “last place” where carrying a firearm ought to be allowed.
The law allowing self-defense carry in churches took effect in September 2019 and just months later, on December 29, 2019, an armed church member, who was also a volunteer church security team member, took out an armed attacker and saved countless lives. This happened two years after another man walked into another Texas church and killed more than two dozen people in the community of Sutherland Springs.
