    Appointment letter from the VAMC contains the following paragraph

    Federal law prohibits weapons on VA property. This includes having weapons in vehicles parked here. Conceal and carry permit holders are also not allowed to bring weapons to the VA. Our police will confiscate any weapons found on VA property.

    I travel to the VA regularly because my health status is not very good. I also OC every day, all day. When I travel to the VA I leave the weapon locked up, and retain the holster. On only one occasion, another patient turned me in for carrying a firearm.When I came out of my hearing exam, their was a bloody swat team waiting. Three in full body armor and two uniforms in tacticool. I was thoroughly searched and had a knife with a three inch blade confiscated. To ensure my disdain for the act, I offered up two more knives the thorough search missed. They demanded my weapon, I told them we would have to drive to my house to get it off the night table. They declined. They also mailed my little knives to me later.

    I do not advocate breaking the law. I do support testing the boundaries. No one gets arrested (so far) for an empty holster. And, YES, I still wear the holster every time I go to the VA. If they complain, put your cell phone in it.
