Texas worshipers win right to bear arms.

The Texas attorney general says licensed handgun owners can legally carry firearms into some churches in the wake of a gunman killing 26 worshippers during a Sunday service last month. However, Ken Paxton says an exception must be made for churches with posted signs banning firearms. Security concerns have risen sharply in the wake of the shooting and Paxton says some churches might need armed parishioners or professional security officers in their buildings and on their grounds. He has also clarified that a state law passed this year exempts churches from paying certain private security fees.
