The Senate passed Bill 71, the Church Protection Act of 2013, by a vote of 28-4 Monday.
If the bill passes in the House and Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe signs it into law, concealed guns will be permitted in participating churches, the (Little Rock) Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Tuesday.
A spokesman for the governor said Beebe was neutral on the bill and would likely sign it into law.
