Would You Carry At A Funeral?

    Why not?


    Concealed is concealed. I really don't care what people around me would think if they knew I am carrying, because they won't know, unless something like this happens. If it does, I especially don't care what they think.

    Carrying a concealed weapon is becoming more socially acceptable, yet there are those who say that a church, funeral, (insert your favorite "holy" place here), etc., but neither social customs nor the law will stop somebody bent on doing violence. I really hope that one of the attendees got the shooter, but the first report is unclear....

    I carried at funerals before, and will do so again when I am so unfortunate as to have to attend others.
    I think there is a WHOLE lot more to that story than reported in that little blurb.

    Yes. I have. No different than any other place.

    Why even ask, either you're okay with it or you aren't? People carry at church which seems roughly the same.

    I would. Carry is carry.

    However, I don't think most people on this board have to worry about similar circumstances to this event.

    Yes, and at church, too.

    I haven't been able to locate the story, but I remember several years back, a few thugs held up the congregation at the St. Stevens A.M.E. Church in Toldeo, OH. I think it was around 2006 or 2007

    Yes... lots of emotions going on. If I felt that I'd be unstable, I wouldn't.

    Absolutely. I haven't, but I would.

    No different from other places I've carried...

    Universities, police stations, doctors' offices, roller coaster, parks, churches, bars, parades, museums, emergency rooms, client meetings, ambulances, zoos, etc., etc.

    Carrying a gun doesn't change what I do or who I am. Only how prepared I am to deal with danger if it comes.

    I carry my G17, with 2 spares and Voyager XL and Leatherman Surge, everywhere and always. I carry to funerals, at church while playing in the band or teaching preschoolers etc, I carry everywhere unless I will see serious legal problems if caught. Concealed is concealed and if I want someone's opinion about it I will give it to them.

    Yep, including my own.
    Just have to figure out which one, and see if the wife really has a sense of humor. :)
