Court rules against gun law

I'm pretty surprised by this ruling. A Hennepin County district judge has granted a temporary injunction to two churches, the first victory for the religious groups in their quest to find that the concealed carry law is unconstitutional and a violation of religious freedom.

I'm surprised because I thought that the churches didn't have much of a leg to stand on. Sure, the law requires churches to put up a specific sign banning guns, but I didn't think that was a huge inconvenience on the part of the churches. The judge, however, disagreed. Opponents to the gun law are sure to celebrate this ruling.

Is so.

(P.S. Unity is my church. Go UUs!)
