Major victory with family
For the last 18 months my two sisters and their families have been strongly against my carrying in their homes. The thing that bugged me the most about this is the fact that both homes have firearms in them (one has a Ruger Mini 14 his dad left to him and the other is the brother in law that took me hunting for the first time, took me shooting for the first time & has a handful of long guns & an AMAZING Franchi 12 gauge.) Why I never put 2 & 2 together & tried this vein in the past is beyond me... Anyway...
I had a major breakthrough today. My eldest sister expressed that she is not scared of a firearm, but rather the potential for it going off through no persons fault. She did not care about the statistics or any rational point I could make. I asked a simple question: "So would it still bother you if when in your home I carried without a round in the chamber?" I was shocked. She gave it the stamp of approval. She told me she would advocate to my other sister and would sway the rest of the family to allow it in their homes.
I am not fond of not having a round in the chamber, but I will count this as absolutely a compromise I can live with and not feel that my rights have been upset in the least.
