Disarmed Victim Zones and Death

My Way News: Gunman Kills Woman in Detroit Church *Updated* Michigan law forbids law-abiding concealed carry permit holders from having guns in Churches. It does not of course stop the criminals from committing crimes.
DETROIT (AP) - A man opened fire during a church service Sunday, killing an 18-year-old woman and wounding her child before shooting another man outside, according to police.

Investigators believe a domestic dispute led to the shooting at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church about 11 a.m., said Second Deputy Police Chief James Tate.
Whether or not someone could have stopped this man before he took an innocent life and wounded a child no one will ever know, because if any of the congregation were CCW permit holders, they had been disarmed by the law.

Attacking this woman in church was therefore the safest place this mutant could stage an attack.

UPDATE: It appears I was misinformed. The law allows concealed carry in churches providing that a presiding official sanctions it. Apparently a pastor did recently allow this after a rash of attacks after services. Hat tip to 2 Valuable
