Guns in Church

Recently, a Louisville-area church had an "Open Carry Church Service" and invited people to bring unloaded guns in holsters that Saturday. My question is this: Why insist the guns be unloaded? What good is an unloaded gun? What good is it? What does anyone expect to accomplish by having a church full of people who, although they have guns, are still effectively unarmed?

I am amazed that there are actually people in this world who are gullible enough to believe that banning guns in churches or schools or anywhere else will somehow stop bad guys from bringing in guns to do harm to whomever they please. Those people seem to be unaware of the simple fact that people with criminal intent, by definition, don't obey laws or respect gun-free zones. Gun-free zones such as churches, schools, and posted businesses are killing zones where evil people can kill at will knowing they will be unopposed for the several minutes it takes for police to finally show up -- just in time to take pictures of the crime scene.
