    It is in Gainesville...University of Florida/Shands...you're in the hospital, but you're also on University property...BIG NO-NO!

    I'd get a hold of Jon Gutmacher. He's a attorney who specializes in CWL matters.

    On one hand you are allowed to carry in your place of business, but on the other hand you can't carry in a hospital that provides mental health services (or some wordage like that).
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    I've been meaning to read his book but since I'm in college I barely have time to sleep. I don't have time to read anything that wont be on my tests.

    But if no psych ward then its legal? (Not on college campus). What if its not on campus but is affiliated with the university?

    Fernset,

    F.S. do NOT list hospitals as a place that is off-limits.
    However, many hospitals have the no weapons sign and list the statute.

    Gutmacher says his opinion is that with your CWFL you are good to go.
    But, there is NO test case. So, do you want to be the first?

    I don't. I also don't want to go to what is the most dangerous place I go-the hospitals-without a way to defend myself.

    Tough choice. I have made mine.

    Lots.
    Just depends on the attitude of Admin. If they want an "offender" charged, they will be charged. Departments want good rapport with the Institution, that supercedes individual relationships in many areas. Not all, certainly, but...

    Having said that, if one is in a hospital, and unarmed, one is a fool.

    Well, I think itís a great idea for a nurse to keep a pistol in her car.

    For many reason, I DO NOT think itís a good idea for a nurse to carry at work.

    Learn to scream, "Help, Police!" loudly. It's more effective.

    Most hospital assaults/rapes/muggings are in hallways/stairwells and parking garages or lots. Violent assaults (intent to kill) are most commonly in the ED and various ICUs.

    What that boils down to is: A) don't take a gun if it won't be on your person and B) if you carry an offensive/defensive weapon on your person, have a definitive "break point" at which it would be used, abd be able to use it effectively and close-in. Best of all, have a good personal evac plan.

    The stuff about being too "close and personal" in floor care to carry(securely) is crap. BTDT.
