In Arkansas you have a duty to notify the homeowner if you are carrying and he has the right to say no as it should be.
As far as me becoming psychotic and killing them with my gun that can happen without my gun. Butcher block in the kitchen!!!
I am responsible for my gun. I'd rather leave it in my holster than in my vehicle while in thier home. If somebody breaks into my car and steals my gun I could have a murder on my conscious from the BG that stole my gun.
Last weekend in my town a drugged out parolee went to murder all his family. Went from house to house killing his parents, siblings, and children. At the third house the police finally caugh up to him and shot him dozens of times. I got to X-ray this jewel of society in the ER of our trauma center. You never know when of where your sidearm will be needed. That's why I always carry and never tell. In my job I see the worst of my community. I will not let my family fall victim to masses of criminals my state can't keep locked up.
For the good of all I always carry and never tell. Again, properly holstered and concealed nobody will be physically hurt or feel there rights violated as they won't know i'm carrying. If a situation dictates I unholster my firearm anti-gun or not at that moment I'm sure they would be glad I was carrying.
Should they ever express an opinion on the matter that ends with demanding I disarm, I have no problem leaving and not returning. But that's just me.
I don't believe it's worth harming a relationship for such a thing. Though, such folks exist who apparently do. It is what it is ... family/friends or not.
I really don't ask considering I shoot guns with a lot of my friends. The only person outside of my shooting buddies who know I carry is my mom and dad, and my grandpa who was a marine and has no problems with guns and no problem with me protecting myself and my family.
No, I do not ask permission for something that is my God given right. Not of an entity, individual nor of a property owner. If that person has an aversion to the 2nd Amendment I swear I will never come to their rescue and will support their decision by watching them be victimized, but I will not allow that of myself nor loved one, nor innocent citizen.
For the good of all I always carry and never tell. Again, properly holstered and concealed nobody will be physically hurt or feel there rights violated as they won't know i'm carrying.
playing the devil's advocate....So by removing my right to choose, via deception, I won't feel as if my rights have been circumvented? That sounds like the obozo administration.... "we need to pass this bill, so we can see what's in it".
With all due respect, who voted for an unknown person to carry "for the good of all"? To me, that sounds like someone who "almost" made it into the police academy.
Respects sir, but the other side of that coins is, "I am responsible for my home and those who are in it. I WILL exercise my right to TOTALLY control who brings what into my home."Quote:

OldVet said it very well.....
It's my house, my private property, my rules apply, your "rights" don't, so there's no "public property" issue to debate. You plan on bringing a loaded gun into my house, you'd best be asking me first. A little common courtesy goes a long ways. Ask and you shall receive.
Disclaimer.... I am for carry, in whatever mode one chooses. I am also for the rights of the homeowner. In this thread, I side with the homeowner.
I don't carry in my parents home out of respect for them - I know how they feel about it and while I could probably slip it in undetected most of the time, at some point I'll get an unexpected hug or something and not only freak them out, but lose their trust.
I'm not much of a social butterfly so most people who's home I go to are close friends and I either know how they feel about the issue or they know I carry. I've got no problem locking it up in my vehicle for those who don't want a gun in their home, even if they can't see it.
It's like I always tell my kids and their friends - my house, my rules. When you go to someone else's house you follow their rules. I follow that principle myself.
Competance with a firearm does not mean I want you aas a friend nor is it a definition or quality of friendship. Lots of bad guys are proficient with guns. That was not a very good arguement.Quote:
If you have friends that you don't trust with guns in your home, then you must really suck at picking friends. Find some new ones.
Anybody have anything like this to check out people entering your residence?
