Williston, ND (WDAY TV) -- Some pastors near Williston are asking that guns be allowed in churches.

The group plans to submit a petition this week to city commissioners that would give churches the option of allowing concealed weapons.

Supporters say it's due to mass shootings across the nation and has nothing to do with the state's oil boom.

Those in opposition don't believe concealed weapons in church or other places improves safety.
