    I don't know where you live but in Mississippi you can if you are legal to own a gun. Not only that you can keep a loaded gun in your car with no permit. The state considers your vehicle an extention of your home.

    I am a California resident and yes, you can carry a loaded firearm in your home or business as long as you are legally able to possess a firearm. I believe there is an exception in the city of San Francisco though but that is probably still in the courts.

    For questions like this you should probably ask them in Calguns.net

    I would bet that "in your home" means inside your house behind closed doors. Sadly, I doubt one is allowed to carry while mowing the lawn on your own property.

    You can if you live in Indiana.

    Georgia, states "on your property". People do mow their lawns with pistols on occassion. Especially early in the season, as snakes emerge hungry and in the first tall grass.

    After I get home, I'm tired and grumpy.

    The lock on the door is protecting you

    from me, not the other way around.

    Disturb me in my cave, and you'll wish you'd

    been shot...

    I am a current resident of California and from what I understand you are allowed to have your guns loaded with one in the hole as long as they are behind closed doors and within your home. My home defense guns are loaded 100% of the time and on safety.

    Why would you want to. ? Its bad if someone feels they can't relax in their own house without carrying a firearm.

    Does it have to be lit?


    Well, since the question DID arise from California...............


















    I'll leave it to a Californian to answer that. :p

    You have never heard of a "Home Invasion Robbery"? These happen all the time in GB. As things get nastier, this may be the ONLY way to "relax".

    And Oklahoma. :p

    We've got poultry and goats, and the woods are full of things that love the taste of chicken. I have a gun on me just about every time I step out the door anymore. And since the road literally ends at the gate to our driveway, I have one no more than a few steps from me in the house.

    Its very rare. If i didn't feel safe in my own house i would move. Having a firearm in the house OK carrying it around the house no i will take my chances. If someone is that concerned about something bad happening why get out of bed you could trip and hurt yourself.

    In Ca. you can mow your lawn while strapped with one in the pipe. It's your home! If you go camping, you can walk around YOUR campsite carrying because while there, it is considered your home.

    Manta, here in the states, home invasions are a common problem. Sometimes when I come home I will not take my firearm off 'til I go to bed. Do I think I will ever be targeted for a home invasion? I don't know but I will not be a victim.
