    8 Dead in North Carolina Nursing Home Shooting

    Not sure about there but here in Texas nursing homes are gun free zones. Perhaps the shooter did not read the sign.

    I bet the nurse and others who are "trained to heal" could have benifited from having a concealed firearm readily available. Classic example of how several people are killed before the police are able to make it to the scene. I'm glad the officer got there quickly and the killing was stopped, but in reality it's a sad fact that 8 people lost their lives.

    One of the reasons why I carry "whenever leagally allowed" to do so.

    The sad part is he probably did know. We had a robbery here in SC at a hospital parking garage guess where you can't carry unless you are a B.G. that’s right the hospital.

  8. This is terrible and I feel bad for the families. These thugs continue to have a consistent pattern. They go after places where they will not likely run into any resistance. But you won't hear that on the news shows in the morning.

    glock fan i was waiting for someone else to say it . you know ambulances with medics of course spend a lot of time in those establishments. they are probably about 10% of our calls.

    I had just left my Mother who is in a center much like this one when I heard about the shooting. One thing ifor sure is if they allowed residents to have guns in that center my Mother would not be there. Very few of the residents in that facility could be trusted to carry a gun or even a knife around. As for the staff being armed I would be concerned about that as they way the have to interact with the residents it would be very easy for one to get hold of the gun from a staff member even if carried in a retention holster. The only door that is unlocked for the public to enter is the front door.

    Visiting the residents in an Alzheimer's faciltiy is both tragic and funny at the same time. You have to laugh at the residents but keep an eye on them at the same time because yuou can never tell what they will do next. Afriend of mine lived nesxt door to his wifes father and mother. One day his fil came over and said, "You know that woman that lives in that house over there. The next time she fusses at me I am going to kill her". The sad part was that he did not even know that the woman was his wife and he actually meant he was going to kill her and would not have hesitated to do it.

    Not all the crazy people are in the asylum and we have just seen that. Bad things are going to happen, we just need to try and minimize them as much as possible.
