With all the places we can't carry concealed, how many of you still carry in those places? I've been guilty of it before. I've carried to places like theatres before with little thought as to it being illegal. Here in NC it is illegal to conceal carry in an establishment that charges admission.

I plead the 5th on this one. :D

Posting in public internet forums can be used against you in the event of legal action down the road. ;)

Some of the local gun shows ask if you are carrying. If you are, they ask you into a seperate line, uncase/unholster, then THEY (which is dangerous in and of itself) clear the weapon for you and put a zip tie through. I know plenty of people who just say "no, i'm not carrying" to the LEO at the door.

YMMV,

I never carry water for anyone, but I have carried a torch or two. I carry a grudge with ease, & have even been known to burn bridges with folks still on them.

True confessions on an internet forum? I'll pass.

Better to be jugde by 12 then carried by 6. Guess some people rather be carried by 6 these days...

I went on a RV factory tour once that started in a main building with no signs posted then we boarded a bus to take to another location. The gates posted no weapons but I was already on the bus, what was I to do?

I try to avoid such establishments—theaters included. I prefer to also avoid the stigma of "sitting duck" and actually, the two are one and the same.

yes, banks, doctors office, police DP but no place where there is a metal detector at the front door.

Unfortunately, I think you are the exception. If companies are doing it as part of their hiring process, you can bet your rear the younger crop of attorneys are doing it.

Nothing on the Internet ever goes away. This is all public. Heaven forbid something happens 10 years from now. And something I post comes back to bite me.

Say what you want, i'd rather not give anyone any ammunition.

Um.....no way in hell. If they don't want me there then I am more than happy to take my business and spend my hard earned money elsewhere.

I don't know about forums, but FB and Twitter have been used...

I've seen this statement before but never understood it.

Can you explain why it's dangerous for someone else to clear your weapon? I'm assuming these people are knowledgeable on how to do it, not just some rookies.

If it is ILLEGAL or not allowed by Employee policy, I don't do it:

Work
Schools
Post Office
Airports
Etc

Do not risk it. It only hurts our PRIVILEGE to Carry. It also harms our 2nd Amendment RIGHTS when someone does not follow the letter of the law.

I agree with D and I can explain why. Often times, the person at the door may not be as knowledgeable as you think. I can see this leading to a nd, but what happens more often is before they unload your weapon, you will be muzzle sweeped and they can be very oblivious to this, as if it's okay or should be acceptable. Definitely isn't okay with me, nor should it be acceptable by anyone.

There are lots of reasons, but you already named the all time big one.

The First Rule of Firearm Safety = Never Assume Anything When Loaded Firearms Are Involved.

Personally, I don't like anyone handing me a loaded weapon. It goes directly against everything I've ever been taught. Hand it too me mag out, bolt locked open, & chamber clear, or I won't take it. Not a pet peeve or anything. In The Marine Corps, if you present a loaded weapon to an Officer for inspection, you go straight to the Brig. Big no no. Very bad JuJu. It's been awhile, but I doubt they've changed that.
