Well if you guys are not seeing these signs...you aint paying attention...on purpose I suppose..This is the first I have seen that called firearms permit holders out...which is the point I guess

Of all places I'd expect to see it would be a hospital

Saw one at CMMC the other day...

Trying to see it from their point of view, they patch up enough holes.....Ya'll should have seen the folks rolling in from the stabbins and shootings....yeah I was at an ER Fri night in Jack town...

In a way, its good to see the signs....then you know where to stay away from....

GFZ's (Gun Free Zones) are dangerous...I'll take my chances in an Hospital ER I guess

they need to check their grammar. It should be "authorize" not "authorized"

and after the recent hospital shooting in TN, I think they would want valid CCW's around.

That worries me with moving to the US because I would feel unsafe leaving my work (hospital) especially if I am working different shifts, i.e nights as a RN. I've heard of women being attacked by gunmen and raped.

That would be just another sign that I would ignore. Like I've said before, just keep it covered. Your personal protection is none of their business.

Would you rather disobey a sign OR would you rather be standing there in your split-tail gown when a thug points a gun at you and have nothing to point back at him except..................well you get the idea.

The laws says the sign must say "carrying of a pistol or revolver is prohibited."
HMM, Good point. Maybe their sign would'nt hold up in court if you were caught carry legal.

luckily I was carrying a glock and not a 1911
I fail to see how that qualifies as "luck" or were you at the hospital to have that hideous thing removed :p

You cant carry in the ER here in Tupelo either, they dont have a sign but they do have a metal detector so I guess they let you know when you beep.I just (reluctantly) left my 1911 in the car.

Seems really unfair to me, I don't feel unsafe finishing a clinical here after nights but I've heard stories from people in the US. Criminals target hospitals because they know women cannot carry there and well might as well just write "Unarmed rape me" on my forehead.

If you did have a concealed weapon how would they ever know? and if they did happen to find that you were armed all they could do would be to ask you to leave. If you did not leave as requested that would be a different story.

All depends on the hospital i guess. Don't work that way at the VA, of course it's a govt. hospital. Used to get fined, and it was up to the judge as to whether you got your weapon returned.

Now you get fined, and do NOT get it back...ever. I get checked with the "majic wand" even before i reach the metal detector, ( don't ask lol). It's actually the only place I have to go, that I reluctantly leave a weapon in my vehicle. I never do that anywhere else.

That is just bass ackwards. I can't think of many safer places than a building full of armed vets. It makes my blood boil how vets are treated sometimes, especially in regards to guns. Thank you to all of the vets and support personel reading this for your service. More respect is deserved. :sf:

I would get a purse/handbag with a built-in holster. If your a doctor/nurse, they wouldnt search you unless they had a metal detector.

In all honesty, unless the hospital is willing to fork out the thousands of dollars to install metal detectors and armed guards at every entrance; theres no hope of making a hospital gun-free.

I mean, if a gang-banger sees that sign, it would tell him no one would stop him while he "pop a cap inna thug who iced his home-boy"

Most of the gangsta's be coming to the ER...in the ambulance

That's why it is called the "gun and knife show"....starts promptly at sundown Fri nights and runs to about 6 am Monday...at least in jack-town...

I would not worry too much remgirl....

Its easier to get forgiveness...than it is to get permission
