Hosting Kids for a Party, And Carrying
#1
My daughter has invited a few of her friends over the house this weekend for a small birthday gathering. Three or four kids. She turned 13 yesterday. One them is transgender, a 13 or 14 year old who is transitioning from female to male. He's also a vegetarian.

What the fuck. What the hell am I gonna feed this kid?

My kid is pretty inconsiderate, inviting a vegetarian over for a birthday dinner.

Anyway, Molly asked if I'd be carrying while these kids were here, to which I replied I in the affirmative. "No, I mean, openly. I know you'll be carrying, I just wondered if you were gonna do it in front of a bunch of 13 year old girls."

"And one boy. And yes, I'll be carrying how I always do. What do anything different?"

I was just thinking about their folks. I don't care if you do, but Lee might, especially if these kids go home and tell their parents about their friend's crazy gun toting teabagger ammosexual dad, hahahaha."

"Babe, one of the kids is trans. I don't think anyone has the right to judge, especially of I'm the one paying for the fucking pizza."

"You know how some douchey liberal parents are," she sighed.

"Yeah, I know. I can't believe she invited a fucking vegetarian. She better be a veggievore, and not a goddamn vegan."

"Two vegetarians. One of the girls is, too." She smirked.

"What the fuck. Do their people eat pizza? Do they even know what pizza is in their homeland? Vegetarian weirdos. If that kid is transitioning to a boy, he'd better learn to eat meat. How's he gonna grow a beard otherwise?"

Molly laughed a lot at that.

I'm curious as to how others have handled hosting underaged guests. I'm carrying, openly, and don't care much if nobody likes it. My house, my rules. Do any of you feel the same? Do you conceal, if you don't normally? Do you not carry? I'm securing the other guns, of course, though I don't feel its necessary; the kids will be restricted to one floor of the house, with my guns on a different floor, and I'll be here the whole time. Still, better safe than sorry.

I plan on getting in contact with their parents sometime today, or Molly will, if I can't, just to confirm dropoff and pickup times, any medical conditions we should know about (food allergies, asthma, etc).

I think...you will have a party where at least one kid leaves crying.

But to answer your question...certain things wouldn't change, but I do try to respect them and their views while they're there, and if I had some kid that was afraid of dogs or cats I would keep the dogs or cats away from the kids. Or clowns...if someone was afraid of clowns, I'd accommodate and not invite any liberals. (wah-ZING!)

Seriously...if my kids guest had an issue and The party is about my kid not me or my views. I wouldn't treat guns as anything different that a kid may be afraid of, and I simply wouldn't expose them to it on purpose. So, for the party, if I was an OCer I would make an exception for the benefit of my daughters good time and keeping the peace, and conceal.

But...that's me and my opinion. Your mileage may differ.

You do have a point, one I've considered. I don't know what my kid told her friends about me, whether they expect me to greet them in my underwear and a pair of six shooters, or what, LOL. If she asked if I can cover up, I would. If she doesn't, then I won't.

I honestly would conceal carry if I had kid guests. There are many reasons.... One, I wouldn't want to offend the parents or have them decide my home was "unsafe", thus hurt your daughter's feelings. Also, I would not want any kid to even try to touch my gun. lastly, if someone is afraid of guns, I wouldn't want them to feel uncomfortable at a birthday party.

Same as I would put my dog away if someone was afraid of it, I would put my gun away (or conceal) if I was hosting something fun for kids.

No advice for the vegetarian except find out if they eat cheese! If they don't, you're screwed. Lol. Buy a veggie platter?

And I decided I didn't feel like Googling the effectiveness of a female-to-male surgery because even though I really, really want to know how that even works, I really don't want to mess with the ad tracking I would have to deal with after searching for that. Haha.

Why not ask your daughter? She probably has the best bead on what her friends can and can not handle. Give her input the weight you think it deserves and make your decision from there.

Obligatory advice you didn't ask for: 13 year old female children are pretty easy to deal with one on one but can be hard to take in groups. My advice is, make yourself scarce. Problem solved.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Order some vegetarian pizza (they do exist) and carry concealed. Beyond that, enjoy the chaos that will ensue!
