    Yes.

    Concealed carry is to keep the living alive.

    I have in the past. If there is a church service involved with the funeral, be sure church carry is not in violation of the law. Some states do not allow for carry in churches.

    Like Georgia. So if the service is in a church, then proper or not, it's illegal.

    In my state, NC, funerals are one of the places that are expressly denied. I assume that some stinking anti idiot thinks that it is a place or event where people need to be [sarcasm]prevented by law[/sarcasm] from carrying for safety because someone may be emotional. Stupid.

    I don't know why I would not. Keep in mind lots of people hug you alot and you should consider what type of system you are going to carry. There will be people that do not know you carry and may not understand, it is not the time or place to get into that conversation.

    Proper is better stated as legal. There are some states, such as NC mentioned above, that expressly prohibit firearms at funnerals. I guess emotions may run too high. If it's legally concealed, it shouldn't be a concern.

    I CC a LCP in my pocket nearly everyday. When I was getting dressed to go to my Dad's funeral, my suit pants felt odd with the empty pocket, so I dropped the LCP in my pants pocket as usual and went on my way. I wasn't expecting any trouble, it just felt better, however an unusual thing happened at the cemetery.

    During part of the services, out of nowhere a homeless-type guy on a bicycle rode right up to the gravesite, claiming he was "family". He didn't know it but the funeral director was a long-time friend of ours, so she quietly called his bluff on being a relative and sent him on his way. The homeless guy could have been mental and pulled out a weapon of some sort as he was asked to leave. You just never know what's around the corner.

    Don't get me wrong, we don't have any justification for shooting a homeless guy on a bike at a funeral. It was just an odd thing to occur, that you wouldn't expect, and does cause your radar to go off. It could have been one of those things that escalate and turn real nasty.

    I'm glad nothing happened, but it would have been interesting to see how the funeral home staff (mostly older folks) would have handled this guy had he become combative. Without any prompting I'm certain that 5 out of the 6 pallbearers would have sent that guy away in a hurry.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Yup, proper.

    And legal here in Virginia, even in a church that is not posted see http://www.ag.virginia.gov/Opinions%...043%20cole.pdf

    Proper? In terms of propriety, how would it not be? I'm not criticizing, just asking.

    For example, it is proper to carry a cell phone to a funeral? IMO yes. It is proper to have it turned on audibly or answer it during a funeral? IMO no.

    Propriety is in the realm of personal and traditional circumstances....so there may always be differences of opinion.

    To consider carrying a gun improper, to me that implies there is a question as to it's value and....the value of other people's opinions. OTOH, if a gun is concealed...who is the one/parties concerned?
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Yeah, be careful of HOW/WHERE you carry. A lot of hugs, and etc. ,...Don't want a hand to land on your weapon

    My personal opinion yes appropriate, OC for that I am not sold on unless they were an OC advocate themselves, but again only my opinion.
