    Exclamation Have to inform homeowner of CC in AR

    Noticed on handgunlaw.us that AR's 5-73-306 says:

    "(D) Any licensee entering a private home shall notify the occupant that the licensee is carrying a concealed handgun."

    Was very surprised by this! How many other states have similar laws that you all know of?

    Wouldn't this be better served as a question in the CC forum?

    I think so, that's why I moved it.


    And yes its true, you are supposed to inform in Arkansas.

    On the other hand, everyone that I associate with is already armed. If you don't have one, they'll offer you one for the duration of the visit.

    I think SC has a similar requirement.

    Bummer. Way to open a can of worms....or just leave it in your car I guess.

    I know of no other states, guess I won't enter anyone's home while I'm in Arkansas.... where I go a lot.

    Here, there are no provisions for prohibiting carrying a gun in anyone's home...... they can ask them to leave, and if they don't .... call police and have them arrested for trespassing, but they wouldn't violate any CC or other guns laws at all.

    For SC:

    SECTION 23-31-225. Carrying concealed weapons into residences or dwellings.

    No person who holds a permit issued pursuant to Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23 may carry a concealable weapon into the residence or dwelling place of another person without the express permission of the owner or person in legal control or possession, as appropriate. A person who violates this provision is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not less than one thousand dollars or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both, at the discretion of the court and have his permit revoked for five years.

    Pretty stiff penalty if one were to violate this and the person chose to really take things to that level...

    I wouldn't have expected this from what I thought were gun friendly states.

    Yeah, it's really a non issue for me. Nearly everybody I know either carries, hunts, and/or has no problem with trusted friends being armed in their residence. In fact, I can't even remember the last time I was in the home of somebody who wasn't pro-2A and okay with people being armed in their home.

    It would be extremely rude to enter armed into another's home without permission anyway.

    Louisiana private property......businesses and residences. Businesses can post a sign, residences must give consent. I don't see businesses posted very often here; any home I visit knows that I carry, they don't care. Granted I wish that language didn't exist, however it hasn't really hindered me.

    The provisions of R.S. 40:1379.3 (N) shall not limit the right of a property owner, lessee, or other lawful custodian to prohibit or restrict access of those persons possessing a concealed handgun pursuant to a permit issued under this Section. No individual to whom a concealed handgun permit is issued may carry such concealed handgun into the private residence of another without first receiving the consent of that person.
    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.

    I knew SC had it in their laws, but was not aware that AR also had it in their laws. I guess I'm safe, since I haven't been to SC in probably 10 years and know no one in AR.

    Given that a person's home is his castle, why shouldn't that person have the right to have dominion over what goes on in his home, what is brought into his home, who comes into his home, etc? I don't see how this law infringes on anyone's rights. You don't have a right to carry in my home. In most states, there's some type of castle doctrine law that allows a person to defend his home and the people in it from harm. So, would it be okay to say you can use deadly force to defend your home, but you can't control if people bring in a concealed weapon, other than asking everyone you invite in if they're carrying, and then having to refuse them entrance if they say yes (assuming the home owner doesn't "like" guns).

    IMHO, the burden should be on the weapon carrier, not on the home owner.
