While I admit that my retired LEO status does offer some help, unless the place actually has medal detecters at the door, I just fail to mention that I’m carrying and after all isn’t ‘concealed carry’ just that? concealed, I would rather take my chances with a jury than a crazed shooter who thinks they are immune from a response until the local PD arrive.
I have a T-shirt that reads, “9mm .22 .380 .40 .45, All Faster Than Dialing 911”.
In Texas it is a felony to carry in a hospital. I have a gun vault in my truck for those occasions when I have to go into a facility where firearms are banned. I agree that there should be fewer soft targets, but it is best to follow the law.
Welcome @James1120 be blessed and glad you are with us.
I recently went to a hand specialist in Sacramento and had to discuss surgery and the implications of that. I told him I am a competitive shooter and he asked me what kind of gun I had. He then proceeded to tell me that he had just bought the same one and we had a great talk about firearms. I got really lucky with him and I’m confident that he will do his best with my surgery to get me back out in the range quickly.
They have metal safes with a cable to attach to a leg of a seat that you can lock your gun into to keep it safe in a car or truck. Then slide it under the seat out of sight
Harbor freight less than 20$.
I wish I could carry at the Doctors but all of my medical is done at the VA and they have strict rules against carrying on the property.
That is fantastic! My doctor is a fantastic doctor but he’s a liberal and dislikes firearms. It’s hard to find a good doctor that likes guns when you’re on Social Security.
I can see where carrying a gun in the doctors office is bad idea. gun can fall out, hit the floor and fire. having gun in reception room is a maybe as if shooter comes in he will not get past the people waiting to be serviced… just a thought but no politician will agree to it…
Why do you assume there is no one of the “hospital staff” receiving the very message your doctor told you not to tell?
Welcome to the family brother @Richard571 and you are blessed to be here.
Welcome to the family @Carlene1 and God bless you.
Welcome to the family brother @Walter44 and you are in the right place at the right time.
I wouldn’t even have told my doctor except that #1 he was going to implant a spinal cord stimulator in my back so I had to ask if it would interfere with the placement of a iwb holster and #2 he had suggested medical marijuana for chronic pain, to which I answered that I was unwilling to give up my second amendment rights (Michigan sucks). My doctor was very understanding
That is fantastic! Wish my doctor was like that!
Just a thought, since you have to remove it anyway just carry it in a cross body bag, small of course.
My doctor doesn’t mind if I do carry in the office. My sidearm must absolutely be concealed, and I can’t mention that I’m carrying to the staff.Â Which I would never do. It’s called concealed carry for a reason. You don’t tell anyone.
Thank you! My thoughts exactly!
I wish my doctor had that view. He’s a great doctor otherwise.
