I know my brother is very pro-gun and carries a concealed weapon himself. So when I enter his home and spend a night or two would you consider it advisable to notify or ask his permission to carry a concealed weapon or keep the loaded forearm up near the bed where you are a guest? There are NO children involved in the scenario. Please also allow the assumption that you are not aware of any stated policy or position on the matter from the home owner. What about a friends house where you are having dinner, attending a party, or just visiting? Do you think it best to notify them that you have a weapon or keep silent. Would you leave it in the car? I am trying to imagine how I would feel with a guest or (welcomed) relative in my home carrying his/her firearm. I'm thinking that I probably would at least like to be aware of it. I'd appreciate your thoughts on the matter. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
