    Well I've Been Made

    My father in law recently told my wife that he had a dream that I carried a gun into the house and went berserk on everyone. This only after I cc'd inside their house. I must have printed somehow cause I know he never physically saw the gun. So I've been asked to not bring a gun into their household anymore. Now my in-laws do NOT live in the safest part of town and it would definitely be labeled as part of the ghetto. Crack/speed addictions and dealers right next door. Constant break ins and police involvement. My mother in law smokes weed (has a med card) and converses with the neighbors and I basically don't always feel safe being over there. I don't have the heart to tell my wife this though, so how would you guys go about it? Hell, visiting her parents is one of the statements I wrote on my Good Cause statement.

    At a loss here.

    Do you have kids? If not, I would avoid their house and I'm torn on letting her with the ganja into yours. If you hate em its your perfect out though!

    My sister told me not to carry in their house two years ago. That was the last time I set foot in their house.

    sent from my phone using swype. pardon the spelling.

    Get an LCP, and pocket carry when you go there. Tell your wife (if you must), that her safety is too important to you to follow rules made up by those who live in a rough part of town & are in denial, but that you love her and her family enough to try to make them happy, too, so that you can all still visit.

    IMHO, if you don't feel safe going there, it's something to discuss with your wife. And if there are addicts and dealers right next door, I don't blame you one bit. Was it your father-in-law who asked you not to carry, or your wife? That could make a difference.

    I guess the way I see it is, it's irrational for someone to freak out over a dream about you, when they live next door to real criminals.

    If you truly don't feel safe there, consider not going. If they're barring you or dumping on you for being capable of defending yourself and your family, inform them you take the job very seriously and won't bow down on that for anything. If it takes keeping your distance from them, so be it. Though, they're family, and it could put a wrinkle in things.

    I'd think it depends quite a bit on what you and your wife decide, in terms of how to deal with it. A dream's one thing. But if there are now ramifications because of that dream, you two will need to come to an understanding. Might well be she's not willing to put up with even low-grade blackmail either.

    If my in-laws gave me that ultimatum it would make me happy.

    If my gun doesn't go, neither do I, pretty simple decision for me.

    With me, as well. Have had family try the blackmail thing. It's fine, if that's what they want. It's not as though being capable of resisting crime changes me or them in the least way. And they're perfectly within their rights to bar whomever they choose from their homes. But choices have consequences.

    Hopefully you'll get orders soon and the problem will be solved.

    Like you, if my gun can't go, neither can I.. Each of us has to decide what is more important to us, I hope you manage to find a solution that you feel comfortable with.

    A perfect reason to get your wife her CC! I'm Thinking theres more to it than just a dream, Or just you! Think of the dreams they will have if you corrupted their daughter into carrying also! Just a thought. DR

    how would you guys go about it?
    I'd tell my wife straight up about the request and tell say I don't feel wanted or comfortable visiting.
