Church weapons policy
UUCTC Weapons Policy
Revised by UUCTC Board April, 2022
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tippecanoe County (“The Church”) exercises its right under Indiana law to protect the safety and sacred solemnity of its spaces. The possession, use, or distribution of any explosives, guns, or other deadly or dangerous materials or weapons reasonably deemed capable to cause bodily injury are prohibited on the premises of The Church. Persons discovered to be in violation of this policy will be asked to leave the premises under criminal trespass provisions in Indiana State Law. Signed members may petition the Board of Trustees for exception to this policy. They must provide the Board with rationale in support of their petition, evidence of the support of two additional Members, and evidence of certified training in firearm/weapons safety. A petition for exception must be approved by a simple majority of the Board to be recorded in Board minutes.
