Maryland Concealed carry for physicians

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone had advice on what has worked for G&S for a physician application for concealed carry. There is an allowance for doctors to apply, but when I e-mailed MSP they still wanted a G&S.

Any thoughts will be helpful?

Do you have a script pad?

If no...you will likely get denied unless you carry large sums of cash for the practice and make deposits.

Your G&S is fact dependent, even for doctors. Do you carry narcotics or other controlled substances in your black bag?

I have wondered about that myself. Legal possession of drugs is not a listed g and s reason on the instructions, but if disapproved and taken to the board, it might fly. Few Docs carry such drugs on their person regularly, but I would opine that if they (drugs) are in the doc's office, the doc is always at risk for the evildoer drug addict to waylay him somewhere away from the office and force him with threats of severe physical violence to go the the office and open the drug safe.
The cash deposit thing is valid and i know some who carry having used that as G&S, same as any business owner. But as I read the rules, you can only carry when actually in the process of making a deposit. (so how does the evil doer know when he has a deposit?).

"So I don't get murdered by a junkie" sounds like a pretty good and substantial reason to me, but then again I'm just a regular person with logic and reasoning, and that disqualifies me from being a government employee.

That raises a very interesting argument to raise once you obtain the CCW. Once the perpetrator(s) gains knowledge of your possessing the object of their desire, they will most likely strike when you are most vulnerable. You would have little choice but to carry 24/7, if you want to stay unharmed. How many stories have we heard about robbers kidnapping people and forcing them back to the place of business. A bank, a pharmacy, even a doctor's office. Good luck, you deserve it.

There is a current news report about a woman who was kidnapped, forced to drive to something like 5 or 7 ATMs to withdraw money, then was stabbed to death. That she didn't actually have money on her person did not save her. Sounds like basis for G&S to me.

Just to be clear, it's not INSIDE the office that is the issue- it is gaining access to what is in the office by the threat of violence to someone who can provide access but is out of the office.
