    Obviously, only answer if you feel comfortable with the question...

    Would you CCW into a home (private residence) if you know one of the following;

    - The person(s) or family is outwardly anti-handgun. but has not explicetly stated that handguns are not allowed in the home.
    - The person(s) or family's position on handguns is not known to you.
    - The person(s) or family has explicitly stated that they do not "allow' firearms in their home.

    Additionally, if you know, is it legally actionable to carry into a home that the owner does not allow handguns in. So ultimately, if the homeowner found out after the fact, he could take action.

    Uhhhh and, does the homeowner bear some responsibility should anything 'go wrong' with your handgun while your on their property. So are you putting the home owner at risk by carrying onto his property?

    Some social, some legal ....

    I have on a couple of occasions. One of them was after going out shooting with the husband. I didn't realize it at the time but apparantly he zips his pants up on the side and no guns were allowed in the house (first scenario).

    Second time was after a fund raiser and a large amount of cash was involved. We went back to his house and I took off my covering shirt exposing the USP on my hip. No problems or strange looks from them.

    Third scenario: CA hasn't seen fit to recognize my CCW so I can't test my parents. :D

    I will unless they ask me not to. Doing so afterward would not be showing respect for them in their home.

    edited for spelling.

    Well, if they're vehemently anti, they most likely wouldn't be friends of mine, so I wouldn't be visiting anyway.

    If they stated "no handguns" , I wouldn't come. I'll respect their rules, and they can have their little helpless sheep party on their own. I've only broken that rule with my dear old grandma - I care enough about her, my own safety, and the safety of my family to carry into her home, even though she told me to disarm at Thanksgiving. I removed the gun she accidently "patted down", but had another on me.

    If they didn't say "no handguns" - don't ask, don't tell.

    I'm no lawyer, so I don't know what kind, if any, action they could take if they discover you're carrying and have an issue with it, or what happens if there's a gun incident involving a guest.

    It would be very impolite to carry a gun into the home of someone who was opposed to the idea.

    Their logic may be flawed and downright stupid, but its still their house, so they can have their rules.

    I agree with ROTL that I probably would not be invited to a vehemently anti-gun person's home in the first place.

    I have and I would. They won't be escorting me to and from my car, and if the would, it wouldn't do any good if Mr. Goblin came to pay a call.

    I don't carry and my "anti" friends don't like me anymore.

    Hah, year of the first MMM, Dennis and I went to visit our local chapter at a place called the Peacecenter. It wasn't posted, they knew we where coming and they didn't tell us not to pack. But out of some misguided decision of youth I thought was respect, (but some people don't deserve any), I slipped my Springfield into the glovebox and Dennis didn't. Looking back I probably should have kept it on, but oh well, Dennis could protect me.:D

    I carry pretty much anywhere now, I have never been asked not to pack by anyone inviting me over. If they did, I wouldn't be going.

    As a rule I never carry in anyone's residence unless I am VERY familiar with them and if they "make" me it won't jeopardize the relationship I have with them. That goes for anti and gunowners alike.

    As previously stated by other posters, I more than likely would not have freinds like that. There is a big difference between a freind and an aquaintance. I may go to church with you and visit on occasional, but it takes a lot before I label someone as a "freind".

    Good Shooting

    Much like rest ... doubt I'd be visiting any major anti's. If no request made then I'd carry as normal .. if I knew of a problem tho then .. like with smoking .. you respect the house owner's wishes.

    My son has been married a year plus and recently we picked up some drywall in my truck .. as we unloaded at his place (me in t-shirt) ... his in laws rolled up (great timing ... usual for them!) ...... and I had my piece as usual in sho rig.

    FIL asks ''you going shooting''?? .....:rolleyes: this was after dark ... ''no says I - I carry'' ... ''oh says he'' ... and that was about it. :p Not sure what MIL thought ... anyways ... no requests for removal or major tantrums so .. as often the case .. acceptance is gained.

    I think I trotted out the old ''better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6''!!:neener:

    If anyone told me not to come to their home with a concealed weapon, I would not go to their home.

    Yea! Because I sometimes do what others don't want tme to do. Besides that, don't tell...that's what concealed carry is all about.

    My inherent right to self-defense by any means I choose is not subject to anyone's opinion. I'll carry what I want, where I want and suffer any "negative" consequences should I need to utilize my tool(s) of choice.

    Seems illogical to operate any other way...but that would just be my personal opinion as a human being in general and an American citizen in particular.

    That said, like many other posters in this thread, I don't like to spend time with sheeple...I can barely stomach the attitudes of freeloaders of any sort, much less those who would willingly put me and mine at risk for the sake of their misguided and historically-disproven ideology.

    I figure if I'm not welcome armed, I'm not welcome, period. That's their loss.

    I don't go to the homes of antis. I guess because all my friends have guns!

    My belife is that my personal safety is my personal reponsibility and it really isn't up to anyone else to decide whether or not it is to be temporarily compromised while I am in their presence simply because of their adversion to firearms.

    And I seriously doubt that anyone who suscribes to the anti-gun 'sheep' mindset is going to be comfortable assuming the responsibility for my personal safety while I am in their home (or anywhere else for that matter) regardless whether I am armed or not.

    That said, I'm a firm believer in the motto 'don't ask, don't tell'. What they don't know won't hurt them, be it emotionally, physically or otherwise.

    Could that be considered disrespectful? Only in the same sense as forbiding me to carry the tools necessary to defend myself while I am in your presence. Requiring someone to disarm before they can feel comfortable around you is rude and un-American, period.

    As always, the obvious solution is to avoid socializing with those type of bottom feeders to begin with. But unfortunately, that isn't always possible. So we have to grin and bear it while keeping our mouths shut.

    Like some others have said. If I knew ahead of time then I would not out of respect for their home.
    ....But then I probably wouldn't be at a home like that. :banghead:

    I would not

    I have some friends who are not necesarily antis but would not want guns in their house for a variety of reasons (it's not the same thing, believe it or not). They are not any less my friends than those who are gun friendly and I would never question my friendship with them based on difference of opinions on any matter. We obviously have many more things and morals that we share than those that we don't. That is what makes us friends.

    I met a couple of people in my life that agree with you on everything even if you change your mind every two seconds. It is quite boring to have a conversation with such a person and not one of them I would call a friend.

    Just my two cents worth
