OK so I thought today while driving.....
What would I do if I was in a non-life threatening auto accident and needed to be checked by EMS on scene? Or even worse transported to ER?
I am always carrying when driving, so how would you go about staying concealed, but allowing EMTs/1st Responders to check you out?
What about being transported to ER? In SC you cannot carry into any medical facility. SO now what???? Technically the ambulance is a facility.
Locally, I can ask any of the LEO to take possession for me until everything is checked out, but what about out of area?
ETA: Ok let's say you end up with a broken leg, and have to go....... what do you do with your weapon? You can't leave it in the car, it's being towed. Legally, you can't take it to the ambulance or hospital, and you really are going to have to ride in the ambulance.
I know the other alternative is to refuse medical treatment at the scene, but then there will be other questions to deal with.
