I work in a strictly cash business, and often carry large sums of money, most of it not mine. I also carry a gun when I have this money, and some, not all other times. I was discussing this with a friend, and when she asked to see it, I told her I never brought it to her house because she has kids. She hit the roof! "My kids would never get in your purse, they are good kids, blah, blah, blah!" I explained to her that I never take it anywhere there are kids, because even the best kids,(hers are unruly little brats) are curious, and an accident can happen in the blink of an eye. I also never let anyone "just see it." It only comes out for target practice, cleaning, or, God forbid, self defense. As a responsible gun owner, I am doing everything in my power to prevent accidents of any kind. I could not believe she would object to someone NOT bringing a gun into her home. What do you think?
