Although I will not carry if I know there are very young kids present.
Why the disconnect? It seems unreasonable that any risk brought to the table is any more or less justifiable based on age alone. Unless you're often tagged into hide-and-go-seek or pull off some crazy dance moves. But one could logically disarm at that point because of the activities.

Lots of (bad) laws get pushed with "think of the children". :tiphat:
I am uncomfortable while carrying around most small children, they can be clingy and huggy. and to be honest, my normal carry method doesn't have high retention. YMMV
Sounds like you need to rethink your carry method.
Nope, It's working out just fine. Most times the only huggy feely person That I'm around is my wife. I conceal carry and my handgun should be in hand long before I get into any wrestling matches.

I carry because I’m thinking about the safety of the children. Especially when I am carrying concealed as part of my church safety team and my station is the children’s building.
I always carry when I am out and about in public places even when children are with me. While at home where I will play with the kids on the floor with lots of hugs and such I disarm. At my home I usually disarm anyway.

Just a guess here, but was this some type of person buying or selling something? If something like a Craigslist buy, I don't go to ANY of them without being armed. Period.
A wise policy. But in connection with a writing group I belong to, I find myself going into people's homes when I have no idea of their position on guns. YMMV, but I see it not as a matter of law but of etiquette not to carry in such cases, though my weapon is often in the car.

Again, YMMV. Make your own call.
As a matter of courtesy, I find what people carry stuffed in their pants is none of my business and what's stuffed in mine is none of theirs. Concealed is concealed.

Re: Carrying on someones private property

I don't understand the issue. I pretty much don't go anywhere without packing. It is what good responsible men do. If I am not welcome while I'm packing, I am not welcome. Hoplophobics are not welcome in my life. People with unreasoned fear of guns and the good people that carry are an inferior breed.
