With White House aspirant Donald Trump and more than 70,000 other visitors roaming Louisville next week for the annual NRA meeting, Boulevard thought yesterday’s installment of our favorite Courier-Journal feature couldn’t be more timely. We’re talking about advice column Annie’s Mailbox, which asked and answered the following:
What is the polite thing to do with a guest who carries a gun? I do not like guns in my house, but I have a friend who adamantly refuses to leave his gun at home when he comes here. Do people who carry a concealed weapon have an obligation to notify the host before entering their residence?
Yes. More importantly, it’s your house. You get to set the rules, and if you don’t want guns, say so. You can’t force him to be honest about having a concealed weapon, but you certainly can inform him of your preferences.
