    Here in MI there is no CC allowed in hospitals, however those of us CPL holders can OC in the CEZ's. I'm not sure I would carry inside a maternity ward. The M&P is pretty easy to disassemble, if you are concerned about leaving it locked in the vehicle, take it down and carry just the barrel with you.

    Ya, that was one of the few times I didn't have my gun on me. It was in the room in our bags. There will be about 15 people in that small room. It will be difficult to conceal. If you can, keep it in a bag in your sights.

    Exactly, and if you have to undress as someone mentioned into scrubbs, you don't want it seen. A birth is important.

    Leave it in your auto or leave it at home. Never heard of anyone getting mugged in a hospital delivery room.

    its up to you but a hospital is actually a pretty safe environment outside of the emergency ward...and there is usually a police presence there anyway...

    another consideration is that a hospital is a weapon rich facility with plenty of makeshift defensive material close at hand at any time...

    and if its your first kid...trust me...you wont be thinking about self defense...youre gonna have a lot on your mind...enjoy the experience...its one youll never forget...your guard will be let down whether you like it or not...

    Leave it at home. And remember... only let her hold ONE finger, no more. You'll understand why if you forget.

    It would be a good time to rely on your H2H skillz...you do have H2H skill, right? [Every CPL/CCW holder should hone their H2H skill at least as much as their shooting skill...]

    If you don't, well, just rely on hospital security for now. Then get yourself to some quality empty-hand training ASAP, and stick with it, master it. It'll still be with you when/if they take your guns away.

    Besides, you'll have all that free time to do stuff once the baby's born!!

    ^^ Bingo ^^
    At University Hospital in Cinci they have UC police there all day along with the regular security.

    The system is to prevent unauthorized persons from taking a baby. You have to enter a code before entering and exiting an area with a baby. The alarm goes off a lot...they lock the floor down when a nurse transporting a baby forgets the code before walking though an area. . Elevators shut down and the stairways are locked. UC police are dispatched and are pretty fast to respond
    (usually with jingling keys as they are running up/down the stairs)

    You should not need a gun when you are at the hospital... its just one more thing to worry about.

    Thats interesting, Rugergirl, I've heard it said that the law about CEZ's can be interpeted that way. Do you have any case examples showing that it has been tested in court?
    As I recall, the instructor in my CPL class said that the Michigan State Police have taken the stand that the wording does allow open carry in gun free zones if you have a CPL. He also said he wouldn't advise doing it.

    congrats

    First, congrats on the upcoming birth. Life as you know it is about to end (along with a good night's sleep). We raised 4 and have 2 grandkids as a reward for not killing our kids when they richly deserved it!
    Here in Texas hospitals are off limits for CCW, but they need to have the proper signs up. If it's legal for you to carry, or if you're concerned about the location of the hospital, you could keep a spare BUG in the ready bag for your wife. We always kept the bag in the car until after the delivery, then I brought it in with my wife's things for her stay.

    It would take me hours to find the cites I've read at MGO.org, but my CPL instructor said the very same thing as your instructor. I seldom OC, just because there are some things some people are better off not knowing. However as I understand the law it is legal.

    I'm all for CC, but having been through four deliveries I would say leave it at home. The place should be pretty secure, you're going to be too busy for any SA at any rate, and trust me there will be a mess that you're not going to want to clean out of the action of your gun. Just leave it locked in the car, and maybe after the birth and once everyone is resting go get it.

    Carrying in Hospitls

    Im surprised to read many posts stating that Hospitals are secured places. Hospitals in my area are 30-06 posted. However they are not secured. Security guards by elevators and ones in parking lot are not permitted to carry gun,they only carry a walk-talkie. Ive spoken to several and admit that its scary. Some dont even escort visitors to cars in late hrs. Makes me wonder if Docters on duty N board members CC even when 30-06 posted. Drs.need protection(Also CHLs) and visitors. I obey,but dont feel protect
