I have a Texas Concealed Handgun License. Texas DPS has done sufficient background checking to be OK with my carrying a gun. Anyone I would want in my house would consider that sufficient assurance that I am not a threat. The "celebrities" I'd like to visit with in my home: Ted Nugent, Congressman John Culberson, Tom Gresham...I guess that's about it. I can't imagine any of them objecting to my handgun. I've been approached in a public place by former president George H.W. Bush's secret service guys. Even they, once they saw my CHL, were OK with my being armed, and in the very office building where the former president has his office and when he was there.

I just cant think of any live celebrities id like to meet randomly.
But I dunno, if I got an hour to talk to the Fed or Obama or even just some people in State offices to really be able to ask "*** are you guys doing?" and not have any bs?
Yeah I would disarm for an hour of no bs discussion and some actual honesty.
Why would I disarm, I know I am not going to shoot him. Rush would give a flip if you were armed.
Nope. Mail it to me. I hear the Post Office could use the business anyway.

In my own house, No, No Way and ahhhhh, Nope. If it's a political figure i like and entered a contest to meet, they would have to be one that understands. a Hollywierd celebrity, I have little to no interest to meet them anyway. If they don't understand, I surely don't want to meet them.

No I would not.

I won't disarm to meet a celebrity, but they can if they want to meet me.
