DAYTON, OH (FOX19) -
One person was injured and a former employee arrested Monday
afternoon following a shooting at the Dayton Veterans Affairs Medical Center in
Police identified the alleged shooter as Neil Moore, 59. Police said
Moore worked in the housekeeping department of the VA.
Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said the shooter walked into a
break room in the basement of the medical center and shot a current VA employee
in the ankle. Police said the worker, identified as Paul Burnside, was expected
director of the VA in Dayton says they don't have metal detectors on the
property, they don't search patients or employees, but those could be policies
that change after the violence seen on Monday.
Should places like the VA allow people to carry concealed weapons?
Currently, there is a weapons ban in place on their property. Many times, signs
are displayed prohibiting the presence of guns on the property.
Despite that, these shootings are still happening.
"It just lets them know that nobody's armed, nobody's there
to stop them. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good
guy with a gun," said Kyle Hufford, president of Kyle's Gunshop.
Ted Froats, public affairs officer for the VA Medical Center in
Dayton says the hospital has those signs.
Should those signs come down, and allow people to carry? That's
"I honestly think it should be expanded," said Dan
Moeller, who lives in Milford.
But, for Moeller, he's on the other side of a fine line when it
comes to hospitals.
"On one hand, you want people to be protected. But, on
the other hand, that's a place where people should go and feel safe
already. They do have security on the premises. That should be
enough," said Moeller.
Joe Kalil is the constable of Boone County as well at the director
of the POST Program,
an initiative designed to train school personnel to carry a concealed weapon in
the hallways. He tells FOX19 that when he became constable, he was able
to get those signs taken down at Boone County buildings, and some buildings in
"It actually makes that building, regardless of where it is
or who owns it, more susceptible to danger," said Kalil.
On top of that, he'd also like to see a wider ability to carry a
"It's a God-given right for human beings to be able to
protect themselves. Why are we removing that right from the law-abiding
citizen?" asks Kalil.
For some, hospitals fall in that category.
"I think your average law abiding citizen, there's no problem
with them having a gun in a hospital," said Adam Hershorin, who lives in
Froats tells FOX19 that the VA has a fully trained, armed police
force. But, he still expects them to review all their security policies.
