Honestly, I have turned clients away based on assumptions that I have made about them. By now it comes natural for me to determine if there is going to be any trouble with the client. And since they all come onto my property and enter my shop, I have to make observations not only for my safety but for the security of my property and the occasional employee that is working there.
BTW in just about all of the states that have the parking lot laws there is an exception for very small businesses i.e. people working from their homes or a small shop. In other words even with the laws that the NRA are getting passed I can still tell you to take your gun off of my property. And further if the property owner that is affected by these parking lot laws feels that there is a threat to safety they can still tell you to leave. I am sure at this point you will say what is the problem then? Well that would be that the NRA pushed for unnecessary laws that by case law allows further hedging of liberties by the government. It is the classic if this allowed then so is this example. What used to not be regulated by the Government is now by case law being regulated by the Government. What it does is give the Government power to dictate further what a property owner can and cannot do on their own property.
If the Government can dictate to a property owner on their Constitutional rights, then whats next? Will other groups take this example and want their own laws? Freedom of speech is protected by the Constitution. Should there be a law that allows people to come into a business and let tell people anything they want, including stuff that would be bad for business? If the owner looses their right to make these people leave it could ruin their business.
Therefore, the only firearm an 18 year old could lawfully own and posses on their own, is a rifle, and since rifles aren't covered under CCW permits, no 18 yo could legally bring a rifle onto school property.

Oh wait they already did that one....
If you folks are so worried about your rights, then stop banning firearms. It's crazy, all you have to do is *choose* to allow firearms and all this legal action goes away. You wouldn't have to worry about future legal action or infringements if you weren't already infringing on others. So if you lose more rights in the long run, poetic justice imo. You got what was coming to you.
A prudent and reasonable person would cut their losses and allow firearms so as to avoid these long-term ramification you speak of, but I guess since you aren't changing you mind that you don't truly care.

Personally I would not care if you carried a gun in my house if I was aware of it; my previous post was a hypothetical.
If you came into my house as a contractor I would be fine with you carrying a gun if I was aware of it at the start and I trusted your company. If I had no foreknowledge of your gun, and then became aware of it I would at the very least discontinue your services (it would be a breach of trust). If I did not know or trust you well, I would use my weapon to hold you until the police can come to remove you from my property (after all I donít know how you might react to my confronting you about your gun).
Your situation seems to be rather rare. You should do all that needs to be done to secure your safety.
Showing respect will gain you allies, and showing disrespect will lose you allies. If you break the rules on my property than I would see that as a personal insult; this will make me less likely to care if someone comes after you. If you follow the rules on my property I will consider you my protected guest; if you are my protected guest than no one will harm you wile I am around.
Respect will save your life!
