SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is prohibiting guns inside the faith’s meetinghouses and on church property.

In the past, firearms at church buildings were considered “inappropriate” but firmer wording had been added to Handbook 2, an instruction manual for local leaders.

“Churches are dedicated for the worship of God and as havens from the cares and concerns of the world,” the new firearms policy states. “With the exception of current law enforcement officers, the carrying of lethal weapons on church property, concealed or otherwise, is prohibited.”
