The laws allow licensed handgun owners to carry weapons into places of worship, and churches can develop, train and come up with a plan for their own volunteers to provide security.  Officers in Lubbock are training church goers in case of an emergency. Pastors we talked to are asking church members to get to know the people in your congregation to help prevent things out of the ordinary.
