Sounds about right for NJ.

I always guessed most marketing in Jersey involved an assault rifles and high capacity magazines.

Alonalayoff is now Onalayoff.

That would all be perfectly legal in Florida.  That is why we have a tag.

I spent time in Texas when it was legal to drive with a gun in the rack with a beer in the hand and looking back taking the beer out first may not have been the best choice.

I'm having a hard time deciding what's worse for society to have in its hospitals: guns or marketing directors.

Were they magazines or clips?

"Hudson Regional Hospital. We do a bang-up job getting you well."

"Hudson Regional Hospital. Our 'magazines' are more interesting."

"Hudson Regional Hospital. Come get a piece."

Calling Hudson Regional a "Hospital" is generous, to say the least.

In all seriousness, if I were a hospital administrator, I'd want my facility to have an armory.  A well secured and well hidden armory.  But an armory.  If civic order breaks down, it's gonna get shooty up in that place.

WTF does a hospital need a marketing director for?
 
2022-12-08 8:23:56 AM  
It remains unclear what the hospital's marketing director was doing with the guns.

You never know when a horse will run loose.

Real Big Fine. It might even take more than one surgery to pay it.

This is Seacaucus, not Newark (and before you get outrage-y: a neighbor of mine worked at the Newark hospital, and said that other countries send docs to Newark, Detroit, Chicago, etc to learn how to treat gunshot wounds, since our cities have an overabundance of GSWs to treat and their cities do not have any).

// TBH I kind of expected it to be South Jerz (pine-scented rednecks) or the NW corner (mountainous rednecks)
// glad to see Jews getting more representation in the "psychotic gun freak" demo 🙄

Looks like even Maryland allows you to have a gun in your gun rack (except for specific locations).  Why focus in on Texas?

Up until the mid 2000s a driver was legally allowed an open container of alcohol  while driving in Texas, with the rule the driver couldn't be drunk. The law changed around the same time a license became required to buy dynamite and just couldn't pick some up at a hardware store.
Always liked legal roadies

$63K ?
So they'll make it up with one patient who needs 6 stitches and an aspirin ?

I know this is fark and we don't read the article or the police report, but the guy said he was "going through a divorce" and needed a place to store his guns out of the house.  He said the closet in his office was "built like a vault" (never mind that it wasn't actually locked when the bomb squad came in); he had left the guns in there for weeks, even taking a trip to Tel Aviv (he was arrested upon return).

Fun detail:  he is or was the registered owner of 30 handguns; New Jersey doesn't have a registry for long guns.

Oh ok cool.  I can get down with legal road beers.  You're either over the arbitrarily set limit or you're not.

Florida law precludes the registration of any guns.   There are lots of hospitals in Florida, the layoff guy should move south.

As someone who's spent 30+ years in a corporate environment, that's about right.

If you want incendiary devices, however, you go to the Creative Department.

So, the dude had 38 guns in his office.

What he was actually convicted of was owning a gun with that had an adjustable stock and a handgrip in the wrong place, one magazine that held 4 bullets too many, and another magazine that held an indeterminate number of too many bullets, none of which would have been illegal in another hospital a couple hours drive away.

However one feels about the gun control debate in the US, I'm not sure there are a whole lot sillier examples of how weird the current setup is.

Why have guns in a hospital? Because they have lots of really good drugs in hospitals.
