SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — In a story Aug. 26, The Associated Press reported that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would be sending the letter it sent to local leaders in Texas to leaders elsewhere about a new policy that prohibits lethal weapons in church. The church said it won’t send the same letter, but will notify local church leaders about the change in security measures.
