Catholic Diocese in Texas is removing ‘gun-free zone’ signs from church entrances for safety reasons

The Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth, Texas, is removing signs that tell people to not carry guns on church property, KXAS-TV reported.

Why are they doing this?

It’s happening partly because of a mass killing in November 2017 that left 26 people dead at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Following the shooting, the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth hired a group of security consultants that advised them to remove the signs.
