Episode 089 Carrying a Firearm on Appraisal Inspections generated more traffic than any other episode.  There was a also a lot of buzz online about that topic.  The biggest criticism surrounded whether or not an appraiser had the right to carry a firearm in another person's house without permission.  It is an interesting question.  Chris was kind enough to join us and give his perspective.

It sounds like I don't really have to think about this happening in my area.

Great topic. I agree 100% with your guest. The owner has the right to ask us not to carry and we then have the right to turn down the assignment if we wish. There should be no conflict about it. People opposed to carrying make me a bit nervous! I usually do not CHOOSE to carry, but occasionally, especially a vacant HUD home, it seems wise to do so. Regardless of our opinions, it was a good topic to consider.

Great show Dustin. I have to agree with you about this topic touching a nerve. My recent blog post on this subject at received more traffic than most of my others. If people are concerned about this and don't want anyone carrying a gun into their home they also need to check with real estate agents because they are another group that this is very prevalent with. Keep up the good work.
