I was asked what will happen if you are somewhere that you can lawfully carry and lets just say you have a stroke or heart failure something that over takes you in seconds.We all know you cant carry into a hospital but what if they find one on you after you have been taken there.After all you make not be awake during the ride to the hospital so you have no control of whats going on.

I don't know if this will have any effect should something like this happen, but in the ICE (in case of emergency) page on my cellphone, I made an entry that says, LICENSED FOR CONCEALED CARRY PLEASE SECURE FIREARM.

emergency workers are trained to check ICE, so hopefully someone would take the clue.

Under the RSMO 571.107.2 it clearly says "It shall not be a crime...." But, it ONLY applies to concealed carry endorsements.

http://www.moga.mo.gov/statutes/C500-599/5710000107.HTM

The folks that open carry seem to be in a little limbo. The last thing I'd approve of is PD showing up, taking custody of my firearm, then me getting stuck fighting with PD to get my firearm back.

Carl, why don't you post up some details on how to create an In Case of Emergency page. Others might find it quite useful.

Now if we only had a paramedic or EMT on the forum that could answer an important question. Would medical professionals actually search the individual? If they strip the person down and put them into a hospital gown, what would be the protocol for securing all of the items, including the firearm, since no crime has been committed (no intent). I have some connections to a couple of hospitals, so I may just ask that question to see what the response is.

On my phone (verizon) When I push "contacts" the entry at the top of the page says "in Case of Emergency" and has 3 entries for contacts, then a line that says "notes" Clicking on 'notes' opens another page with 3 blank headings

Note one should be for medical info, in my case, " Asthma" "NO Drug Allergies"
Note two says CONCEALED CARRY LICENSE.. PLEASE SECURE FIREARM

While I realize most phones are different, every cell phone I've ever owned had an ICE line at the top of the contact list
and I believe first responders are trained to check this, so use it, it could save your life, especially if you have a medic alert or drug allergy, and it could save you some hassle regarding your weapon

What a great idea! This could be helpful for so many people. I had never even considered adding something like this to my phone "that I almost always have on me". Thanks!
