Inmate flees ''no-guns'' hospital after ''nearly taking life'' of officer

As most know, St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo is a "No Guns" hospital. I'm sure you also know that there have been three or four attacks in the parking garage in the recent months. To that effect, they have built more fences and posted more -unarmed- security guards in the parking lots for employee protection.

St. V's also provided free training to female employees on self defense, I suppose in order protect themselves from -armed- criminals in the parking garages and lots.

Last night, a incarcerated three months pregnant woman was at St. V's for a checkup and overpowered a security guard and was able to escape from the hospital.

I'm not sure what bothers me more, the fact that I cannot defend myself and my family at the hospital, or the fact that the security at the hospital is laughable.

At what point do we stand up to all of this?

Even though we are licensed, we still cannot carry to defend ourselves in what seems to be some of the most dangerous areas.
