I saw this on Discovery channel last night and thought it made a good scenario to post here. It actually happened in Utah (where I'm from) but it was quite a few years ago; I can look it all up and try to find old news articles if anyone is interested.
A woman goes into labor and goes to the hospital. A little while later a man enters the hospital with a shotgun in his hands. He is trying to find the doctor that had tied his wife's tubes after she had given birth to their eighth child. He wants to mess up the doctor that messed up his wife; apparently his wife didn't want more kids and authorized the surgery but he still wanted kids so instead of talking to his wife he decided to hunt down this doctor.
At some point he ends up behind the hospital with two nurses and kills one after she tries to take his shotgun (he also had a handgun). That was about the same time the police arrived on scene, so the BG and the other nurse went back inside. They ended up in the same room as the orginal woman that had come to the hospital in labor.
He talks to the police for a little bit and then he points his shotgun right at the pregnant woman's stomach and says that he will shoot the unborn baby if they don't bring him the doctor he is looking for. He doesn't end up shooting her and they move to another area of the hospital where he ends up surrendering later.
So for the purposes of our discussion; you are the pregnant woman's husband or the pregnant woman herself, I'll let you pick. As far as whether or not you are armed let's go with everyone's states laws; where I'm at I haven't found anything saying I can't carry in hospitals yet but I'm still double checking. Are there any federal laws on this?
As some of you know my wife is currently pregnant so this one hit me pretty hard. I know what my answer to this scenario is but I want to hear from everyone else.
