By a vote of 62 to 21, the State House voted Tuesday to extend Stand Your Ground immunity to places of worship. Currently the law applies to homes and businesses. Churches could still ban weapons on their property.
Democratic State Representative David Perryman of Chickasha voted against the bill. "Many of us would like for you to put your sword away and don't try to protect me in my place of worship," he said on the House floor. "The people who oversee that house of worship will do just fine making sure that members are protected."
