I support the proposed draft policy statement written by John Ruprecht. My understanding since the CCW program was initiated in Mendocino County that of the 1,600 CCW (Concealed Weapons Permit) holders, there has never been a single shot fired or unnecessary display of firearms. The majority of CCW holders are law abiding citizens, many of whom live out in the country where an emergency 911 response could take over 30 minutes. I am strongly opposed to citizens carrying a concealed firearm illegally whether it is at the supermarket or hospital. By the way, as a law abiding citizen, I turned in my CCW license once I relocated to Sonoma County.

Gotta love Liberals!

Yep, that sign ought to stop the "crud" from bringing their weapons into a hospital. Knives included? Staff and patients can rest assured that safety has been increased as a direct result. However, the signs must be posted in 15 different languages, before taking effect ;-)

Funny! Let's put up signs that says:

-No shoes, no shirt, no service!
-No insurance, no money, no service!
-No drugs or alcohol and no one allowed treatment while under the influence!
-No individuals who lack good hygiene!

You post a few! Let's have fun with this absurdity!

I grew up in Fort Bragg a long long time ago.(1963-1980) I have been living in a city of over 2 million people for the past 20 years. How refreshing that my hometown newspaper which I read online.. is just now having to discuss guns in hospitals. Our Hospitals have armed security on staff in every hospital in my area. Very Refreshing!!!
