    The patient's internet WiFi will not all me to go to any firearms related website!

    I can check out the commies on CNN, youtube is fine as is Facebook, but not Glocktalk.com, www.TexasGuntalk.com or AR15.com.

    I can't even get to www.brownells.com oir Midway USA!

    They have simple restricted the access.

    Has anyone run into this in other hospitals? For the price patients are paying, I should be able to go to any website I want!

    I need to find an email address to complain to!

    Incredible mediical service. I mean this is the only hospital that I would ever go to (except Ben Taub for trauma as they get the most practice).

    But if you can access www.4chan.org you should be able to get to texasguntalk!

    My wife had surgery at St. Luke's last January 2009, and was there for four days. I stayed with her the entire time, using my laptop as she slept. As I recall, there was no block on firearms websites then, as I frequented different firearms forums pretty much daily.

    Must have some new liberal anti IT staff......:confused:

    One thing I have not been able to find was an email for someone to complain about this issue.

    and yes, its an issue to me.

    can't get to any "weapons related" sites at Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth either that goes for guests and employees.

    No Brownells, No Midway, No TGT, No Trapshooters, BUT I can watch all the tasteless videos I want on Youtube or read liberal horseshit at the Obama Forum, and Move On.

    Some of us employees used to get around the proxy settings by Googling the website and accessing via the link and also going to gun websites that don't don't sound like a gun site (IE The High Road) but a friend in Internal Security warned me that we were being watched. Eventually even these "loopholes" were plugged so we don't even try anymore.

    Is this St. Lukes of the woodlands or houston? My MIL works in the ER at St lukes of the woodlands and I may have her check it for me just in case.
