Couldn't find the exact spot for this one as there isn't an off topic section (or did I miss it), but any nurses who love guns here?
I love hunting and shooting! I only have a couple guns, a 12 gauge and a 22 mag, but I shoot as much as I can.

What has this got to do with nursing? Another feeble attempt on your part to act the provocateur.
Do you realize that nurses are attacked more than any other profession in the USA?

That includes being shot. All hospital employees fear this. One of the surgeons at Johns Hopkins was shot point blank in the stomach in the hospital and almost died. There is more than one active shooter situation per month in hospitals here.

Gun violence is also a public health issue. Over 500 people have been shot in Chicago year to date. About 1 person per day is shot in Baltimore.
The appropriate place for this type of discussion is on a gun or hunting forum, not here. I write this as a law-abiding gun owner.
