Should guns be banned in hospitals?

Miami Herald, January 17, 2012

In Florida, it's against the law to carry a gun into a school, an athletic event, a jail, a police station or a local government meeting. Not so with hospitals, where it remains perfectly legal to pack heat. For years, Linda Quick of the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association has wanted to change that. Just before each session of the Legislature, when her group publishes its agenda, it includes a talking point: "Add 'licensed hospitals and nursing homes' to the Safety Zone provisions of the Concealed Weapons Law."
