What would happen if while armed.......You were involved in a accident or had some other type of medical emergency and were rushed to a hospital while incapacitated?
I got to thinking about this after I spoke to an old college friend of mine the other day. We were talking and catching up on things, this was the first time I had seen her in years. We were doing the typical 'have you heard from so and so' and 'do you remember so and so' when she told me that someone we had gone to school with had been in a bad car accident and he and his wife had gotten messed up pretty bad.
Well, later on I got to thinking. What would happen if I had to be rushed to a hospital? I am armed almost everytime I leave the house and I know that almost all the hospitals here in Kansas are marked as no carry zones (at least the ones around my area are). What would happen if I was taken to the hospital while armed, would they call the LEOs and if so would I get charged? (you can be charged with a misdomeaner in kansas for carrying while in a marked no carry zone). Would the ambulance even transport me while armed? presumably the paramedics would notice the firearm while provideing medical attention. Would they disarm me first or at the hospital and if so what would they do with the firearm? I'd hate to think about my firearm not being secured if such a situation occured.
I am sure this situation has probably happened somewhere to someone, anyone ever heard how it was handled?
