Discussion with my Dr. about "One Bad Apple"
Yesterday I had an appointment with my doctor who is in a very well known Cardiology group in Germantown, TN.
At the end of my exam I asked her why they had a "No Guns" sign on the outside door of the clinic. This was my 2nd appointment with her and like the 1st time, I disarmed before entering the building. On this visit I explained to her I was licensed to carry and was disappointed that I had to disarm when coming to her office. She said she understood and thanked me for leaving my handgun in the car.
She explained the sign went up a couple of years ago after an incident involving a patient who had a TN handgun carry permit, was armed, and brandished his weapon after getting frustrated with his lengthy wait to see his doctor. She said the police were called and the man was disarmed and escorted out of the building by a few Germantown Police SWAT officers.
This was very frustrating to hear that an irrational HCP holder was responsible for the loss of my and other legal carriers' rights in this facility. Fortunately I only have to see her 2 times a year.
