    No longer donating blood

    Unfortunately ill no longer be donating blood as they do not allow open carry at united blood services. I emailed today to see what their stance was as im scheduled to donate a double red, and was told that it is not allowed while donating because they do not want to be responsible for what happens in the event someone passes out. I responded by letting him know i understand his stance and that he could explain that to the 3 lives lost at each interval im allowed to donate that they did not have blood because of their decision to not allow me to legally carry a firearm.

    So ill follow through on my appointment today but will no longer be donating.

    Edit: i got another email response saying that firearms are welcome just not at the time of donating, and if someone else holds the firearm its not an issue. unfortunately this does effect me as my brother is the only one i know and he donates with me so no more blood from me.

    I know a carrier who was recently drug-tested, the sample given at a private clinic.

    To prevent druggies from substituting clean samples for their own urine, the carrier was required to empty all his pockets into a lockable steel container to which he was given the key.

    Perhaps the blood donation center would provide a similar box for a carrier. Or, perhaps you could take along a small fireproof safe for documents, just big enough to hold the gun.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Just tell them "you won't need a needle...I'll make a big enough hole for plenty of blood to flow out"

    Very interesting, isn't it more dangerous to be HANDLING a loaded gun than if it is left untouched in a holster? Wait, they must be using logic from the O'Bummer book!
    Crazy cant be stopped with gun registration or control. These guys will continue until Americans admit we have a real mental health and crime issue in this country. Go after the gangs full force and keep the crazies off the streets, and leave me and my gun alone.

    I thought of this as well but could not think of a nice way of saying that i carry a gun cocked and locked and the highest probability of a ND is during unholstering. The only time i will unholster is during a confrontation or to put it away at night. But i let it be.

    As far as showing up i should have but i was going with my brother and didnt want to sit outside on my bike for over an hour while he donated.

    Feel free to use it with my blessing anytime you are asked to take it out of the holster it then.

    Now, now. No bashing the government.
