Even I understand that police officers need to carry weapons. However, they have been trained to the highest degree. My brother is a police chief, and the training they get vs. what we get is a little different. Plus, I would hope that the police officer responding to a call wouldn't be an amateur hopped up on adrenaline who might just shoot innocent people in the act of trying to protect my household. I am allowed to dislike weapons in my home.

So you trust strangers you've never met in your home with guns, just not people you know and otherwise trust.

All the pithy NRA quips I'm reading in this thread make me want to vomit.
The "strangers" in question are trained professionals -- if you need surgery, are you going to go to a surgeon, or your close friend or relative "you know and otherwise trust"?
So.....you want to report her because you don't like her.At least be honest with yourself about your motives.Guns are prohibited at the hospital where I work.Bags are not checked at the door on arrival to work. So I assume there's at least one gun that's in the building at all times.The rumor is the ER docs have them. I don't know.

I am being 100% honest with myself. I don't like her, and that is the main reason why I am hesitating. I don't want to be the cause of her losing her job, she has children to support. That's why I posted this question in the first place, I wanted to hear from seasoned professionals about their opinion.
I have decided to remain quiet at this point. Others are aware of the situation, and they have been employed in this department a lot longer than I have. I will add that I have not mentioned this to anyone, but there were others in the room that heard the same thing. That's why I know that others are aware.
Woot woot things are getting steamy!
Out of sight out of mind.
Concealed carry FTW. Or at least locker carry FTW.
I wouldn't have showed anyone.

I believe a previous poster referred to the Law enforcement agents as ''highly trained''. And yet....
I only learned 4 rules about guns
Rule # 1 Finger off the trigger unless you're ready to fire
Rule #2 Treat every firearm as if it's loaded
Rule #3 Only point a firearm at something you intend to destroy (including self- See video)
Rule #4 (unrelated)- know your target and what's beyond it.
hehehe silly man shooting himself.
His gun wasn't loaded.
He was also shot in the back. So a loaded gun wouldn't have helped him, would it?

The real pint of posting that, aside from some comic relief, is that mistakes happen even with well-trained individuals.

Again, it is okay for me to not want guns in my house. I understand that people walk around with them. I don't like this, but am unable to change things. The only place I have control of is my home. No one will enter my home with a gun, unless they are specifically called there to please bring their gun and save my butt. This is how I feel, and it's my house. I trust almost no one to be in charge of "saving" me. But, when someone is trained specifically to do that, then that is who I will call to do the job. Not my next door neighbor with a conceal carry license.
