Do I have the legal right as a homeowner to not allow people to carry guns/firearms on my property? Either concealed carry or open carry?
In trying to decipher the regulations I think I do but am not quite positive.
Can anyone help? Thank you!

Seriously? Of course! You have the right to forbid anything (or anyone for that matter) on your property, if you are indeed the owner or legal tenant.

If you don't want guns in your home, there should be no guns in your home.

Anyone with a concealed carry who does not respect your rules as the homeowner should just not be invited in.

Yes you do.
Why you want not want them on the property is beyond me but yes you have the right to say yay or nay.

I wouldn't want anyone who I didn't know very well on my property with a gun.

Maybe they want to be the only ones with a gun on their property? Maybe they don't want any guns on their property?

You can forbid your guests from carrying, but do you really have a problem with that many people showing up with firearms at your house? As far as any legal backing, the only charge you could get on anyone is trespassing if they refuse to leave.

I would not recommend you go so far as placing those signs that say gun-free zone or some other such nonsense on your property.

It's your property. You set the rules as to who can come on your property. Otherwise, it's trespassing. The only ones who seem to have rights that trump yours are "government officials" when ordinances or laws are being broken.

As for anyone on your property with a firearm that is concealed, there's no reason you should know they are carrying unless they are dumber than a box of rocks. It's called concealed for a reason. Two members of our family have carried concealed for as long as the CCW law has existed. No one has ever known we were carrying, unless we share a common interest, i.e., right to personal safety and protection.

As someone noted before, I would strongly advise against a sign that states no firearms. Guess who the low-life thugs are going to visit, first.

If you know someone who you think is carrying concealed when they visit you, then politely explain your discomfort and ask them to secure their weapon in their vehicle. They will - or should - respect your wishes. If you are one of the rabid anti-gun types, that person won't be visiting you in the future.

O.K. folks, bring it on.

If a family member or coworker made it known they didn't want guns on their property would you still carry?

That could be viewed as being a little disrespectful IMO.

I don't think a sign stating no firearms invites thugs unless it actually says there are none on the premises.

I'm fortunate to have a social circle that doesn't believe the 2nd Amendment stops at their door. I guess I'm just lucky like that. But, if someone asks me to leave, I will do as they ask. Any business that asks me to leave will not ever have to worry about me darkening their doorway again.

I honestly don't understand some people's intense fear of firearms. And I am not suggesting the OP is fearful of them.
