    Asking Family and Friends to carry would be like asking the manager of a mall if were ok to carry. The whole point of a Concealed Carry License is to Carry it Concealed, Out of Sight and Out of Mind.

    I carry where ever the law permits me to and I don't tell a soul...

    I don't ask. Any body I give a damn about knows I always carry, if they don't want my gun in their house they don't want me. Pretty much that simple.

    I don't ask and I'm careful how I hug. Alway carry, never tell.

    Not a topic or conversation piece I intend to have when visiting a friend. Just because I'm visiting a friend at their house does not mean that I suddenly became ten foot tall and bullet proof. To my knowledge they are just as likely to a suffer a home invasion as I am at my house and therefor it seems prudent to remain armed for the sake of safety for the entire household. Firearms are a subject best discussed amongst like minded people; any other theory IMO is just asking for trouble. Like its been said already. I generally don't visit anti gun folks anyway, and if I do or have, well my position works pretty well, because I/they sure didn't know it.

    I don't ask, concealed is concealed.

    If I have prior knowledge to their beliefs about not allowing concealed weapons in their home, I don't go.

    I don't bring it up - if they haven't noticed the hunk of plastic and steel when I hug them yet, they never will. And if they haven't brought it up - I assume they don't want to think/talk about it.

    I have many acquaintances.... and handful of friends.... I know how the friends feel, and I've turned more than a few acquaintances into friends, by asking. I don't hold myself in such high esteem that I'd hold my rights above anyone else's. I've never been refused entry, and I've always been thanked for asking. Works for me. YMMV.....

    Not saying to do something that is against their wishes, but if they don't express their wishes, it isn't your responsibility to bring it up. If it were, you'd spend half your life asking if it is alright to do something.

    I discovered that nugget while familiarizing myself on laws in states I visit or travel through regularly. Personally I don't ask but won't violate the law or carry into a home where I can reasonably expect the owner to be anti.
    Indeed. I have very few friends who are anti's. I don't carry in their houses (in SC) but then again, I hardly go there. All my other friends do carry and have no problem with me carrying in their home, just as I have no problem with them carrying while in my home.

    Nope. The less people that know, the better. Now my close family is all for guns and me carrying so it's a non-issue. My mom did have a CHL, my sis and aunt also do, my grandma doesn't have any issues with it as long as it's out of reach of the kids - ie safe in my holster, and I really don't go to anybody else's house.

    Try the "reasonable man" argument.... would a "reasonable man" expect that any other person would have to enumerate all of their dislikes, before allowing you into THEIR home? In my opinion, NO, a reasonable man would not. Would a reasonable man expect that he could take his dog into his neighbor's home without asking? I think not. I s'pose I best make the declaration that I consider another person's home to be private property.

    I would want to know if someone were bringing a weapon into my house because I may not know the level of competence (IE the person could be a complete moron and clueless to firearms safety) so I inform others that I am not well acquainted with that I am arm. Now, most of you are going to say "Well, why are you letting people in your house you don't know very well". I love to cook and because of that I do a decent amount of entertaining. It's not uncommon that I may be having a get together and a friend may bring a date that I don't really know. Come on... We have all seen it. That person that is a totally clueless when it comes to guns. That person that will whip out his CCW, finger on the trigger in the middle of a gun shop. I want to know who is armed in my house so that I can decide whether they should be around myself and my guests with a loaded weapon. And because I would expect to be notified, I show others the same respect.
