    Hospital signs

    I went to the hospital to see a friend today,and I was packing,as I get to the hospital I drive past the entrance doors and there is no 30.06 no gun sign,so I park my Bike and unstrap my cane and walk in the front doors.After entering the front doors on the second set of sliding entry doors is the hated sign.Why can't they put it on the outside,I hobble back out to my bike and open the saddle bag,then I look around and make sure nobodys watching while I unholster my M&P45c into the saddle bag,I then remove the mag and stick it in my pocket eject the chambered round and pocket it,then I field strip the upper off the frame and stick it in my pocket.I then lock the frame in my Saddle bag,I refuse to leave a weapon somebody could steal and use,I then walked in to the Hospital and was told I was about 2 hours too early to visit my friend

    I love Nevada. Every hospital here has them as well. My wife was hospitalized several times last year, and I would just walk by them and laugh. Here, they have no legal standing. If asked to leave, you have to or risk arrest for trespassing. But since it's concealed, there's no problem.

    I like the idea that you took the magazine and field stripped the weapon to prevent a functioning gun to fall in to the hands of a BG. When I was reading the post and you said you were walking back to the bike to put it in the saddle bag I was thinking, I hope he doesn't do that. Nice job.

    In MO, hospitals are off limits in the law, so no sign needed. Good thinking on the field strip

    Good idea with the field stripping. Luckily here in VA the only hospital off limits by law is Medical College of VA, which is part of the University of VA.

    That's good thinking to field strip, I'll have to remember to do that. Thanks

    Check the law, I think in Texas any part of the gun is treated the same as the gun. That is what they told us in class. You may have been in violation with the slide and mag in your pocket.

    It was at the entrance just not on the outside entrance

    Nope the receiver is considered the gun,everything else is parts and there is nothing illegal about carrying ammo or gun parts

    nope, whoever told you that in class is completely wrong
    he did a good job stripping it down and taking slide and mag in his pocket, no violation of the law there

    You need to re-read the law.

    Missouri lists 17 places not to carry, but then says carrying there is not a criminal offense but may subject you to removal from the premesis.

    You can carry in a hospital in MO if you want to.

    I'm a cardiologist in Arkansas, and all the hospitals I work in are off limits to CC by state law. I hate that, because it makes CC very inconvenient for me. I suspect that similar legislation is on the books in most states.

    What exactly is the difference between an entrance and an outside entrance? Seems kind of redundant to me. If its anywhere other than the outside, its not an entrance. If its not visible from the exterior, then wouldnt that make the sign invalid?
