    For Arkansans

    I live in Texas, but really, really close to Arkansas, so I have a question for those that live in Arkansas about a bit of the law that I find quite querky.

    Do you in fact tell someone when your carrying concealed and go to thier house that you are carrying like the law requires?

    I have some friends that live in Arkansas, and do on occasion go into other peoples homes in Arkansas, but have not followed this part of the law myself. I know, shame on me, but at least I admitted it. I know the friends that I visit know that I have a permit in Texas but don't think that they know that I carry every day. Besides they are folks that I shoot with, so it is not like they are opposed to guns or whatever.

    Anyway for those that are in Arkansas or tend to find themselves there a lot. Do you notify the homeowner?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I'm looking forward to the answer to this one, too. I also live in Texas, but go to Arkansas on occasion.

    You are required to tell the homeowner that are carrying a concealed weapon. If the homeowner wants to be tough he can tell you to leave or remove the weapon. I know, I know. Most of the time it's a buddy's house and doesn't matter. But it is a part of the law. Is Texas different?

    Texas (and probably most other CCW states) doesn't have such a law. The only states of which I am aware who have this notify-in-private-residence are Arkansas and Alaska. Maybe Ohio?

    I always notify the homeowner when I am carrying and wish to enter their home. So far I've had zero problems.

    The friends I have will unmercifully harass me if they find out that I aint carrying.

    Technically, the law requires that you notify. Although Ive never heard of a prosectuion for it, it basically gives the homeowner the final say in the matter and as far as I know, its never been an issue.

    Personally, I think its more of a common courtesy thing to take it upon yourself to inform. If going into someones house that Im not sure of...I'll just leave it in the car until I get to know them enough to make it known.
