ANDERSON, S.C. — Baptist pastor Tony Tilley carries a deep knowledge of the Bible into the pulpit, along with his quiet charm and a .40-caliber Glock strapped to his ankle.

"I know it's kind of a goofy thing probably to carry it even in church on Sunday," Tilley said. "But it's just out of habit. When I leave the house, I always carry my gun with me wherever I go."
