Hmmm, well if anyone can say guns are not evil, Id say shes qualified. Reply Stl legal says: January 21, 2013 at 13:09 This is what gives me hope. Family oriented women who take their own safety and the safety of their children seriously. And am I the only one to notice that pro gun women seem to have a more wholesome beauty than the hawkish antis? Reply DisThunder says: January 21, 2013 at 13:11 Five kids! And I bet every single one of them understands gun safety better than any employee at the NYT. Reply g says: January 21, 2013 at 13:16 Awesome to have a mom representin’. Thanks Jenny! Reply S.CROCK says: January 21, 2013 at 15:43 we need more females doing this kinda stuff. Reply Pascal says: January 21, 2013 at 13:27 You Rock! Reply MotoJB says: January 21, 2013 at 13:28 Awesome… Reply Ivy Mike says: January 21, 2013 at 13:29 Jenny, On hospital policy about an active shooter: Does your hospital have any? Everybody is avoiding the issue because most active shooter boilerplate policies–run!–in other fields would require abandoning patients in a healthcare setting. Have you solved this dilemma? I know another nurse who would appreciate your input. Reply Gyufygy says: January 21, 2013 at 13:46 Dude, do you have to attack and confront people with every post you make? Abrasive doesn’t begin to describe how you come off. If you’re not actually trolling, I don’t think you could persuade a man dying of thirst to drink some water. Chill out. Reply Bob says: January 21, 2013 at 14:25 I skip over all of his posts. Reply Ivy Mike says: January 21, 2013 at 14:33 Intimidated much? 😉 Ivy Mike says: January 21, 2013 at 14:31 I didn’t attack. I’m asking her a serious policy question that I’ve discussed with a Registered Nurse, who said their hospital is avoiding making a policy because of the dilemma I presented. So why did you attack me and act so abrasive? Reply Ralph says: January 21, 2013 at 14:37 So why did you attack me and act so abrasive? Because we’re all in the Standing Army and think that Smedley Butler was an a$$h0le. Ivy Mike says: January 21, 2013 at 14:56 Your ilk do find the complete 2A to be as offensive as it is to Chuck Schumer himself. GA EMT says: January 21, 2013 at 17:06 All healthcare professionals know that it isn’t patient abandonment if a scene becomes unsafe. What good is a dead nurse to the patient that can probably survive for 10-15 minutes while help (pronounced good guys with guns) shows up. Ivy Mike says: January 21, 2013 at 19:55 All healthcare professionals know that it isn’t patient abandonment The subject I brought up was discussed at a major meeting among several hospitals. The liability of being blamed for “patient abandonment” is the precise reason nobody is writing a formal policy that includes “runnin’ for your life” for an “active shooter” at these hospitals.

See you at the range Reply Tyler Kee says: January 21, 2013 at 14:03 Orange slices at range day would be amazing! Thanks so much for doing this. We appreciate you putting a face to gun owners. Reply Bob says: January 21, 2013 at 14:25 Thanks Jenny! Reply Big Sarge says: January 21, 2013 at 14:34 You kick ass Jenny! Keep up the fire! Reply Randy Drescher says: January 21, 2013 at 14:42 Finally, a nice lady instead of a bunch of grizzly old F’s & young guys with hair, Randy Reply ProfBathrobe says: January 21, 2013 at 15:39 This coming right on the heels of the “Million Moms for Gun Control” gives me just the jolt of hope I need. Thank you very much Mrs. Live. Reply Carl says: January 21, 2013 at 15:44 Take Jenny’s lead and smile for the camera folks! Reply LC Judas says: January 21, 2013 at 16:31 Nurses are some of the best people I’ve ever known. Always kind (the job trains it in) but…that would make someone a great instructor too. Hopefully she can teach the value of the Second Amendment where she is and turn some tides in our favor. Thanks for posting, Jenny. Reply jwm says: January 21, 2013 at 16:48 My mother was a nurse. She could also handle a shotgun with the best of them. Reply Sierra says: January 21, 2013 at 20:02 Jenny, you are Awesome! We need more women like you to show America the true face of responsible, law abiding gun ownership. Reply Thomas Davis says: January 21, 2013 at 21:58 not really sure what to say here. just want to say thank you to everyone for fighting this fight for us! catch me in person and i’ll stand and say plenty! just lost when typing or writing. again, thanks for fighting for our rights!
