I'm fairly new to all this. And since I am, I'm now looking at things from a different angle. So I have a question for y'all. The other night I was working in the backyard and my wife comes to the door and says "We have to go now!" I look and she's holding a washcloth over her wrist. She was cutting a box, slipped, and got her wrist (about a 2 inch long cut starting at her wrist and going up the arm). One of our children just got out of the shower and the other was still in the tub waiting to be washed. So we get everything together to make the 20-30 min drive to the nearest hospital. This whole time I'm in "calm-panic" mode. So we pull up to the emergency room entrance. They park our car for us (that was nice). We go in. They take down all of my wife's info. Then we have to walk through a metal detector before we get to the waiting room. This is where I started thinking. What if I had a concealed carry permit and was carrying. I would not have thought to take it off and leave it home while all that was going on. So I would have gotten there and had it in a gun free zone since the hospital is on campus. So, what happens in a situation like that? Common sense would tell me that they would hold the gun 'til you leave recognizing the situation. But I also know we don't live in a common sense world. Interested to hear how this works.
