Recent events beg the questions: Should a chiropractor have guns in their practice and should they allow their patients to have guns on them during office visits?
We shared an article last April: Tips to Protect Your Office, Staff, and Self after a stabbing at a Chiropractic office.
Earlier this week a murder/suicide occurred in a Chiropractor’s office, killing the doctor. One of the comments stood out.
Two men died by gunfire Wednesday inside a McKenna chiropractic office in an apparent homicide-suicide with a shotgun, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
Dr. Robert Sowers, 46, of Yelm was killed, Pierce County medical examiners said. He was the physician at McKenna Chiropractic Center.
Medical examiners identified the shooter as Robert Knapp, 35, of Roy. Knapp was the husband of a receptionist who worked in the office who arrived moments after the shooting, officials said. A massage therapist inside the office at the time of the shooting was not hurt.
Witnesses called 911 about 8:25 a.m. to report the shooting at 9111 346th St. S.
