    St. Joseph Mercy Oakland (Pontiac Michigan)

    My Mother was just admitted to St. Joe's in Pontiac Mi ( I don't know why she went there of all places ).

    I am very uncomfortable going into pontiac without my XD, but even though I have a lock box in my car, but I really don't want to even tempt any of the low lives down there to try to get it.

    Seeing as there has been violence inside the hospital I am not comfortable going in without my gun which leaves me with Open Carry as my only option (CPL Holder).

    Does anyone know if St. Joe's has a policy banning Legal Firearms, or if they are posted?

    Do you know if they are privately or municipally owned?

    They are owned and operated by Trinity health as mentioned above. I have been there on a few occasions as-well as other Trinity Health facilities and I don't ever recall seeing a no firearms sign posted anywhere. It has been a few years since I last set foot in anyplace that was owned and operated by them though so their policies may have changed since my last visit.

    I disarmed tonight just in case but left my serpa and mag holsters on. The serpa stuck out from my shirt and nothing was said, they are not posted at the doors. No metal detectors (knives would be easy to get in), and two renta cops who are not armed (no real security for being in pontiac). I will be open carrying when I go back as they are no posted and do not appear to be making any attempts to keep weapons out.

    Mother however is not doing good, and although I'm new here (been lurking for months) if you pray, please keep her in your prayers. She is having cardiac problems and possible anurism. Waiting to see what the doctors have to say in the morning before I move her to Beaumont.

    In my prayers.

    Carry discretely, wear black for example. If you have something to carry, flowers, brightly colored ones, do so appropriately. If you have someone with you, position them discretely in the proper line of sight. Dont be suspicious.

    Allowing guns in a hospital is bad for business.
