Attaching Newel Post to Bluestone Step

I want to attach a newel post for a railing on a porch. The steps are 2" thick Bluestone over brick. Is it better to notch the post and attach to the brick or can I use molly's and attach to the stone? I am concerned about the stone breaking if someone pushes the post sideways. (lots of torque there)
