I see a story in today's Oregonian that a couple was arrested and charged with having a loaded gun in a hospital. The charge was "possession of a loaded firearm in a public building". I haven't been in an OR hospital for many years but here in WA a hospital is a privately owned building and not a "public building" like the Courthouse. So, before I get in trouble if I ever have to visit anyone in an OR hospital are they considered "public buildings" making them off limits? I do have both WA and OR permits.
