That's not true. Ever since September 1, 1997 Hospital's have been required to post 30.06 signs and at that time they had to include the 5 1/2" Red Letter 51.

Only since about 2003 has the hospitals been posting a sign stating that it's illegal to carry a handgun even if you have a conceal permit (most hospitals today are posting this type of sign and it has me confused). I've seen at least one case they posted the code and it was not in conceal carry section of the code. If I can find the code posted again I'll send it to Charles Cotton. It is Texas Code not federal. If anyone can find the where Texas hospital code saids it's illgal to carry a handgun please post the info.

Thanks,

Mike Lochabay
I'm not quite sure what you are talking about,however we are free to go into a hospital unless it is properly posted with a 30.06 any other wording is meaningless to CHL carry. If a sign has old wording it has no relevance today. other than as a historic reference.

Hospital or nursing home. TPC §46.035(b)(4).
The hospital where I work has an OLD sign on several of the doors. Something to the effect of State law prohibits the carrying of concealed handguns blah blah blah and ends up with a citation from Vernon's civil statutes. I believe it was probably the original prohibition of carrying concealed in a hospital. I understand the intent of the sign, but is it still valid?
The intent of the sign is to inform you of what the law used to be.
