    Shooting at Renown Medical Center (Reno)

    Reports say that some goblin shot 3 people (killing one) before shooting himself.

    I wish these idiots would do it in reverse order.

    I was getting ready to start a thread to ask the same thing. What is the law on University property in Nevada for carry?

    Who owns it?

    They have a .org website, but that is not authoritative.

    For more than 140 years, our hospital has served the healthcare needs of northern Nevada. Originally operated by Washoe County as the county hospital, ownership of Washoe Medical Center was transferred in 1984 to the newly created Washoe Health System, a private, not-for-profit corporation. In the fall of 2006 after an extensive community study, Washoe Medical Center become Renown Health. Today, both Renown Health and Renown Regional Medical Center operate as private, not-for-profit organizations.

    So concealed carry is not illegal, regardless of signage. Good to know. Thanks.

    Having just gone through 9 months of prenatal care in that exact building, and having gone through the birth of my child in October in the actual hospital (along with my buddy's newborn spending time in the NICU 2 years ago), I have not seen any sign on any Renown building prohibiting carry of any sort. And I'm glad I've never been unarmed at that hospital considering these events.

    Some reports said the man calmly walked in with the 12ga in hand, told people in the lobby they should leave. Un-effing real...
