Arkansas Senate Approves Guns in Church

According to Religion News Service, the Arkansas Senate recently passed a bill allowing people to carry concealed weapons in church.
The proposal, which goes to the Arkansas House for consideration, would allow churches to decide which, if any, worshippers with concealed carry permits can bring their firearms inside (sic).
I wonder if congregant-on-congregant crime is real a problem in Arkansas churches. But most of all, I wonder why those who claim to worship a benevolent god that is supposed to be intimately involved in the affairs of humans would not simply place their fate in its hands. Shouldn't prayer alleviate the need for handguns in church?

Perhaps churchgoing Christians in Arkansas understand the futility of prayer better than they let on.
