MORE: Bill would require signs for gun-allowing churches
Beebe told reporters Monday that he signed into law the bill that would leave it up to churches and other places of worship to decide whether to allow the concealed weapons.
The concealed handguns would be banned at churches unless they specifically allowed it. Beebe told reporters that a companion bill filed Friday addresses the worries raised by some clergy.
The recently filed House bill would require churches allowing concealed weapons to post signs notifying about the decision.
