Went to the hospital today...
My son had hernia surgery today. Yes, the same son who wants to be special forces yet literally passes out at the site of his own blood. But I digress.
Now it is my understanding that I can carry in Oregon everywhere but Federal buildings, court houses, etc. So when I took him there at 5:30 AM (I am thinking he was not going to need anesthesia, but I digress again) I had my gun concealed.
As I was filling out the paperwork, this was in the hospitals Conditions of Service:
Weapons or other dangerous objects, illegal drugs, and drugs not prescribed by an individual's health care provider are not permitted on the premises. Hospitals obligation to provide a safe environment must override the individual's right to have these items in his/her possession. Hospital reserves the right to search individuals or rooms and to confiscate such objects upon reasonable search.
Hmmm. If they saw my weapon, could they confiscate it, or would I just be requested to leave peacefully?
Oh, and by the way, while I was waiting for the procedure to be completed, I was working on my laptop. They had WiFi, so I logged in to their network. I tried to access this forum but was denied by their filters because this was a dangerous and unapproved website.
