I just came across a recent scary article of a senior allegedly shooting a nurse in a Nursing Home. As scary as the shooting it self may be, what's even more scary is the comment from police that stated that the alleged shooter may well be within his rights to possess a firearm.
Are Patients/Residents allowed to possess a firearm, or any other weapon where you work?
It is not for sure whether he owned the gun legally or not. However, there is nothing to stop these institutions from having a "NO GUN" policy. Before you sign on the line to be admitted you should be informed. If you object then you can go somewhere else for care.
