You will get help pretty quick.
If you're skeptical about 'reporting' your own post then 'report' one of mine instead - but I've reported my own before, it's a quick way to talk to anyone available in authority here.
I show nothing deleted either and a bunch or posts answering the same stuff more than once what do you think your missing i have my settings high and see its 3 pages all ready so im think its truely high than that perhaps you missed some on all the pages?
well there are 96 responses 97 with my post thats why im asking i got mine set at over 40 per page to make it easier to read
No, you're going to treat him as a threat. Your tone and language and the automatic distrust merely for possessing a gun is similar to the police in many urban areas. There have been Open Carry stops (recently in TN) that resulted in similar treatment. One Open Carrier in MN was warned that cops will respond to any man with gun calls in full felony stop mode.
So, since you're going to automatically treat him as a threat, you'll fully understand if the cops automatically treat you as a threat and act accordingly.
I mean, they're using the same criteria you are: the mere presence of a gun before determining legality.
THAT is the comparison I was making.

The more that I review this thread, the more I begin to see your point.
I have never had this situation occur. I do 90% of the service work on my home and have never noticed any guns on the few tradesmen that I have hired. So, I have been speaking from the "This is what I think I would do" standpoint. After this debate I can only say that I would play it by ear. If I notice a gun, the workman's actions and attitude up to that point would probably dictate my reaction.
As you have stated, I should have done at least a little research before asking someone in to work. He is either backed by a reputable firm or a licensed contractor himself. Or for that matter, herself.
Thank You for not letting this lie.
I may not have even considered my response to be a little hypocritical, as I see it was in retrospect, if you hadn't forced me to reconsider.
Here is one thing might have been said but might not i didnt read whole thread but as a repair man who enters peoples houses everyday .. some say well you dont know him blah blah blah
Also remember i don't know you .. Never heard fo a repair man being called to a address and being mugged or killed? I have has happened here more than once..
While it might upset some to think that a unknown repair man is entering your home armed .. I look at it as no different than when i carry else where its there to protect me ..
Are you a bad person who called to have me service something ? unless i have been there a bunch how will i know? Got to look out for #1.
I have waled out of a drug raid .. Had the neighbors shooting it out as i was leaving a Call
Have had to have the cops come and get me when a home owner refused to let me leave .. Dangerous to you .. Ha
im the one on unknown ground in a unknown house.. Step into my shoes for a day or 2 and you will have a different point of view .. and if your only worried about the repairman having a gun your not thinking outside the box
i got other stuff just as dangerous in my hands in that plain jane beat up looking tool bag..
Food for thought..
Its a reality that some people aren't going to feel comfortable with a man in their home with a gun no matter what ( or any gun as far as that goes ). I live in a small town and if I refused to do the work because I was made, it would ruin my business, and fast.
The answer is to carry a small gun while at work, conceal it well, the customer is none the wiser and I go home with paycheck. ( And they call me back next time ).
Bud, I'm right there with you.
The incident that finally woke me up to getting my carry permit was when a couple of contractors were working in a empty house in East Nashville and a few gangbangers came in and robbed them at gunpoint of their tools, wallets, watches, truck, everything. One of them got hurt. I was working on my own in an empty house in East Nashville too at the time, it could've been me.
I did my permit class ASAP, and I carry everywhere I go.
I wouldn't shoot my way out of a situation where they were just stealing my tools, but the way the gangs are going here I would want to be able to protect myself from anyone who wanted to do a lone target harm.
