Question: How did the demolition woman who is shown on a monitor shooting herself get the gun in the first place? After all, she isn't a security guard.

Answer: With all the monsters being kept in captivity, it would make sense for the facility to have an armory as well. Guns may have been handed out once the cages were opened.
