    Why would anyone assume? Why not just ask and make sure they don't? What is the worst that could happen, they might say no? If I was bringing something that others might find offensive, volatile, or dangerous I would ensure it was OK if I brought it into their home.

    Good question Toorop.

    Do you also ask if they object to your religious or political views? Or just keep them to yourself? And if you are carrying and consider yourself dangerous, that might require some reconsideration.

    You ask why assume? So do I. Why assume that a Right that you do not express (it's concealed and you do not reveal)...is wrong? Or may be considered so?

    I voted other. Everyone that I am likely to be in their home either carries themselves or has no problem with carrying anywhere anytime.
    If I am forced for some reason to be inside someones home other than these people, for whatever reason. I will not ask or inform them. They wont know, I wont tell no harm no foul. If my pants were to fall off for some odd reason and they would see my weapon and object to it then I will instantly be history with no intention of returning. But thats just me.

    Because my carry status is something I don't discuss.

    Florida has no duty to inform a home owner about CCW.
    I don't inform anyone...no one knows...concealed is concealed.

    I voted for ......... "Carry and assume the home owner has no objections."
    My family knows I carry, so if I'm visiting them it's already a given. As for the rest of the people I associate with if they see it and have a problem, I will gladly remove it with no questions ask and likely not revisit there home again.
    I carry all day everyday at work and have never been made. I don't see this as a reason to start worrying about what others think.

    I voted "other". I don't even think about if they would have a concern or not. It more than likely wouldn't matter to me if they did.

    All my friends and immediate family know I carry daily and everywhere. None have had any objections to me carrying it so I can only assume they don't care. If they do concealed is concealed. God forbid I ever have to protect myself and my friends or family while at their house they will probably be alot happier that I have it.

    I always carry. About 10 years ago we had a rabies problem up here. A fox started to act weard at a BBQ at a friends house. I dispached him and the friend thanked me for it. Its not just jerks we have to defend against. Th fox did end up rabid.

    I voted "other". Your Constitutional rights terminate at my property line. Cross that line, and I'll tell you what's allowed or not allowed. 99% of the time, you can carry here with no problem. The first time you come here, show enough respect to ask.

    Just like free speech online is at the discretion of the site owner.

    I usually leave my gun in my vehicle when I go into a friends house where I know they are uncomfortable or the wife is uncomfortable around guns. If they are gun people, no problem, I don't go into the home of someone I don't know.

    I know my friends and who may have objections. It's very presumptuous to assume you can carry in a friends home. Most of my close friends know I carry and are okay with it.
