    Just crazy. I have never heard of this going on but, who knows. I have however heard of and seen residents yell at each other and even fist fight but guns, no. Maybe it will draw some attention to the conditions of LTC and residents needing mental health treatment, but likely not.

    I can't imagine how traumatized this nurse must be. I hope that she has a full recovery.
