Mass murderers v. armed citizens

A PA doctor used his gun to shoot a crazy person who shot his case worker.

Good thing the good doctor had the sense to disregard the hospital’s “no firearms” policy:

Employees are prohibited from bringing firearms or explosives of any kind into the workplace.

    Proving once again that gun violence can be highly desirable and beneficial.

    Well, he’s not a pizza delivery driver, I’m curious to see what happens here.

    The standard mischief is to fire the person who disobeys company policy, not always because of an anti-RKBA sentiment but because bad guys who have been shot (or their surviving families) see the hospital, pizza delivery corporation, or other workplace environment as having well insured “deep pockets”. They have the policy in the first place to protect the interests of their shareholders against lawsuits that should have no merit.

    But a doctor has a quite different relationship than an hourly delivery driver. Still, I predict loss of hospital privileges at the very least.

    It might be worth noting that many doctors are not ’employees’ of the hospitals they work in.

    They may have relationships with multiple hospitals in the area. They frequently use that as leverage to get what they want from a hospital, or they’ll their their patients to a competitor hospital. So hospitals do their damnedest not to aggravate their doctors.

    That’s a nuance that my wife has to deal with on a regular basis.

    Well, now it’s not a mass shooting, and police are “seeking the motive for the gunfight” between the doc and nutjob.

    Quoting from : http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/07/25/police-seek-motive-behind-gunfight-between-patient-doctor-at-pennsylvania/?intcmp=latestnews

    A spokeswoman for the Mercy Health System said the hospital has a policy barring anyone except on-duty law enforcement officers from carrying weapons on its campus.

    At least the cop gets it: (same source)

    But Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux said that “without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives.”

    USA Today’s story is “Pa. doctor shoots patient” (gee, wonder why he did that)

  6. Dann in Ohio Says:

    To quote another doctor regarding hospital policy on guns and explosives… “How that workin’ out for ya?”

    Hank, well, he heard shots, saw the PA go down, and then he saw the great flash as the gun was pointed at him and the bullet grazed his temple, and, forgetting decades of saint training, just snapped, and shot this pore defenseless patient who was just there seeking help.
    (I’m really interested in when DARPA can release its sarcasm font).
