But according to the Associated Press, there's a caveat. Those carrying guns inside churches must take firearms training and be designated as security staffers for the church, but they will have legal protections from the state if they need to take action.

According to The Clarion-Ledger, the bill was authored by pastor and state representative Andy Gipson, who commented, "I wish we lived in a world where this bill wouldn't be necessary."

Georgia and North Dakota ban guns from churches, and a handful of states ban concealed carry inside houses of worship even for permit holders. Most states leave it up to the churches themselves to decide.

Mississippi's new gun law also joins a small group of other states in allowing concealed carry in general without a permit.

What do you think of this new law?
