(Little Rock) (AP) – The Arkansas Senate has approved legislation that would allow concealed weapons at churches that also operate private schools.

The Senate voted 29-4 Thursday and passed the bill by Republican Sen. Bryan King of Green Forest. It would allow – with the church’s permission – concealed handguns to be carried at churches that also operate private schools.

The bill now heads to the House for consideration.

The measure is a follow-up to a bill sponsored by King and signed into law earlier this year that left it up to churches and other places of worship to decide whether to allow concealed weapons into their buildings.
