    I'm a Petty Man?

    So my wife's best friend is in town. She flew in from New Zealand. I hate this woman. She HATES guns and American culture. She's a baby doctor who has lived all over the world, but holds America in contempt because of child mortality rates in this country. Anyway, I'm heading home tomorrow myself, and will have to suffer for a week and a half while she's here under my roof. She would be completely freaked if she knew I was packing... and I mean freaked. As in, off to a hotel freaked. Matter a fact, my wife and I have figured out a way to get her out of the house so I can move my rifles back in from the car.

    I figure for my wifes sake I'm not going to say anything... except on the last day. Just before we get in the car to drive her to the airport, I'm going to put my little car safe in my wifes car (we'll use her car so we can all fit), whip out my G26 right in front of her and lock it up complaining the whole while how disappointed I am that I can't carry at the airport where all the terrorists are (I don't feel that way - but it'll add to the effect lol)!

    If I have to stay home while the wife drives her to the airport - so be it.

    Am I petty? I really hate this woman.

    Sounds like you are a noble husband willing to sacrifice a bit for the sake of his wife and his wife's' friend. All the while providing the protection a husband should for his family. Now for the last part...if your wife is up for it...go for it!

    Hey, at least your willing to accommodate her during the visit which is much more than I would do so maybe I am more petty than you? The only thing I will change when someone visits is if they have kids than I lock everything except my EDC up tight.

    Yeah, there is no way I would be keeping all of my guns in my car for a week because some anti gun person was staying at my house. If I have friends over who have little kids or something, then I will adjust accordingly, but Im not going out of my way for someone just because they dont like my life style, and even worse, have an issue with America.

    OK, how about this?

    Should she start ranting about America and the gun culture tell her that America is your home and you love America and it's culture.

    Also, say if you traveled and visited her country you would consider ranting and disparaging her country and culture to be ignorant, provocative and exceedingly rude.

    Let her chew on that for awhile.

    I would really piss her off as I have firearms hanging on my walls.

    Kill her with kindness and offer to take her child to the range.

    And without the U.S. "culture", she'd be speaking German or Japanese.
