We just recently adopted a 12 yr old boy from the foster care system in WA. To make the adoption easier we moved across the river from Portland, OR to Vancouver, WA. Because of this I had to go the other day and change my carry permits. While going to the sheriff's office to make the change my new son asked why we were going. I told him to change the address on my permit and explained what the permit was for after he asked me. He then said "Why would you need to do that? Why would you ever need to carry a gun?" It struck me right there and then that he has no idea that I carry a concealed firearm. He knows I own guns and he knows he is not to bother them but he does not know I carry one. It is not like I have made an extra effort to hide it from him. I am just not someone that announces it. In fact even at home I am discreet about it. I keep my EDC in a finger safe under the powder bath sink downstairs near the front door. When we leave the house I go into the bathroom and put my carry on my belt. When I get home I go in the bathroom and remove it and place it in the safe. Still, I did not take the chance to correct him at that time and I did not inform him that I do carry. I am not sure why. I just did not feel the need to tell him then and there. I did explain to him why I would need to carry a gun. That I might need to defend myself and him against a threat from a bad person. Does anyone see any reason I should let him know?
