Are there any lists of gun friendly churches in Ohio?

We had a thread running on that for a good while, but it's way down in the stack by now.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

I'd think that would be a pretty hard list to compile. How exactly would you get the information, as I doubt many churches would answer that question just on face-value from a nonmember?

It would be a very useful list to people of gun, but the political blowback of publishing such a list would be enormous. Not just in the media, but also in individual church vs denomination problems. Not a lot of church offices (i.e. denomination level) are pro-gun, as the bureaucracy tends to lean heavily socialist. Sort of goes with the territory, see the National Council of Churches' historical record. Why do you think they were an enumerated off-limits location in the first place?

Good points, all of them.
As the times get worse I’m much less likely to go anywhere that are good guy gun free zones.
I guess the only way it would be ok is with smaller nondenominational churches with allowable gun toters known only to a few.

I seem to remember that gun friendly churches have to POST that GUNS ARE ALLOWED. Churches are automatically no gun zones like schools, government building etc.

Permission from the church leader is the operative out here.

We have a policy in our church. Just check in with our men greeter and let them know you’re carrying.

I believe the law says you have to get permission from the church - and the state has failed to define "Church" as it pertains to the officer, board or congregation having the authority to grant 'permission'.

don't be surprised if you find some gun friendly churches may not want you to carry there until they know you. in the case of an active shooter you may get in the way of their internal security team or get shot.....

Anybody know how many prosecutions have resulted from unauthorized carry in a church (or any similar GFZ stats)?

Much of this is simply an unenforced/unenforceable scare tactic preying on the "law-abiding gun owner" moniker.
