    "I hope it's loaded!"

    By state law, as a person who has a permit to carry here in Arkansas, I have to annouce to the home owner upon entry that I have a weapon and wish to know if it is okay to enter. I did just that at one of my friends house today and she says "I hope it's loaded!"

    Yep, Ditto on the Good Friends.

    I wish that everyone was like that. I know of a few people that they think all they have to do is call the police and "Poof" their saved.

    Same here (Louisiana) about informing the homeowner. The few folks I visit would look at me, as in:

    "What are you telling me that for, I could care less".

    "Oh yeah, that reminds me, let me show you the gun I bought yesterday"

    "While you're here could you shoot that possum that's been in my attic?"

    "Hey, good idea, you want to shoot some targets out in the backyard?"
    Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:

    Luckily, our Missouri law has no such requirement. Most of the people who's homes I visit don't know that I carry, and I see no reason to inform them. Do you have to announce upon entering a restaurant or retail store? Those are typically private property as well... what's the difference?

    What a silly thing to require... what's the use of concealment, if you're going to announce the fact every time you walk onto private property!
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    good friends.
    yea, man what a stupid law.
    im all for ppl being able to say whats allowed on their own private property,
    but if they dont want it, they can post a sign or say so!
    i dont need to say "hey, is it ok that im wearing purple socks?" when i enter someones house!
