Having recently been to the doctor's office, where I know at least one of the doctors doesn't like guns.
And thoughts of possible near future CCW reciprocity somehow coming to be, where I can now carry at the doctor...
What if they make me? That I am carrying? I don't want them to post a no-guns sign
Sure, when you don the paper nighty your pants and holster are all rolled up with your other clothes and sitting on that spare chair. But it'll look funny if they go "Oh, Mr. T-Bolt, can you go to this room next door and let us get an xray of your neck?" Something that has happened in the past. But if I had a pistol, I'd also grab my pants in that case, before perambulating down the hall in my disposable smock.
If they notice the gun? One thing a body could do is tell them a teeny tiny little lie, "It's ok, I'm with law enforcement."
Then, they figure all is right with their world. Cops are allowed to have guns, right? So they'd calm right down.
No, there is much too much that can go wrong with that little sorta lie. It's not a full lie. A body didn't say he WAS law enforcement. But a body was hoping the listener would imply that meaning. All law abiding peeps are 'with' the enforcement of laws. But you wouldn't want to say that line in front of a lawyer with a tape recorder. Might as well carry one of those cheesy CCW 'badges' so the cops will have something else to laugh at when they take you down and cuff ya, impersonating a police officer is a felony, I am pretty sure.
Yeah. Think of something else to say when the doctor notices you carrying.
Folks do calm down when they think you with the gun are probably a cop. But don't YOU directly try to convince folks of it.
