Presence St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago has a "no guns" policy that goes well beyond what is required by Illinois law. Last week, security there ejected a uniformed, on-duty Chicago Police officer visiting a retired police officer patient during a break. Why? Because the uniformed cop wouldn't surrender his sidearm.

What did the lone female security officer tell the cop to do if he surrendered his gun and then needed it while inside the hospital? "You will have to do like the rest of us, which is to run and hide."

I for one don't believe this story.
My wife has a doctor there and I have seen many officers there from time to time.

It can't be fake! It's on THE TRUTH ABOUT GUNS!
I look upon their "journalism" with the same jaundiced eye as CNN and Yahoo news.

Yeah, sorry folks.
Tried to do a web search for any corroborating new articles on this, but no luck.

Well, I'm country, so - Under what circumstances would an onduty uniformed cop surrender his gun to a civilian? Without orders from a ranking officer?
