Hero doctor keeps job

Maybe you didn't hear this story last week since it doesn't fit in the the anti-gun message most of the media propagates. Last week, a mentally deranged man came in for treatment at Pennsylvania hospital.

During a meeting with the man's doctor and case, the patient seems agitated.  He became a gunman. The man went to his waistband and pulled out a .32 caliber revolver. The man shot his caseworker point blank in the head.

I'm sure the gunman got the surprise of his life when his physician went to his pocket and pulled out a .32 semi-automatic pistol, aimed at the shooter and emptied his magazine into him. When it was done, the mentally deranged gunman had two shots in his torso and one in his arm. He was dead.

One more thing, they found 39 more bullets in the shooter's pocket, meaning he was possibly going on a killing spree.

Reportedly, the patient was really agitated, if not downright mad there was a "no guns allowed" sign at the hospital. You notice the sign just made him angry and never stopped him from carrying a gun.

After all this, I was afraid the doctor would lose his job because even though he had a license, the hospital was a gun-free zone. A hero would be looking for work.

After consideration, the hospital will let the doctor continue working there. Since things worked out like this, I'm sure not a lot was reported.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Deaf you do not know what a munitions instructior and armory custodian is?

"a munitions and armory custodian instructor for the state of Texas"..

Little more specific don.. Texas State Guard? Where don, where?

yes deaf I am along with being a munitions and armory custodian instructor for the state of Texas for more than 20 years. So tell us all deaf why is it that Greg abbott is against an open carry law in Texas and Wendy Davis supports open carry in Texas?

But dave.. it shooting was not in Texas but in Pennsylvania.

And the doctor has been allowed to keep working there. They said.. bygones!

Shooting incidents are always tough on everyone involved. The incident will face review by the DA and a grand jury. Hopefully the Dr. seeks counseling. It can be tough.
Unfortunately here in Texas the mental health care system for indigents is grossly ineffective, under funded, under staffed, and over burdened. The few drug and alcohol rehab facilities in the state available to the indigent are over burdened. Most of the ones in our area (200 mile) have a waiting list of a month or more.

Hello don...are you really a 'certified firearms instructor'??? Come on now, fess up.

If you are a CHL holder then you should know what President Obama did to expand gun owners rights at the Federal Level.


What do you mean 'Texas certified firearms instructor'? Now if you were a CHL instructor then where was the DPS range IN AUSTIN? And what was the roof made of? And if NRA instructor, where did you get the training (hint, there is not many places.) So what kind of 'instructor' are you?

Oh and about Obama, he's pushing for another 'assault weapons ban' and magazine capacity ban. He barred reimporting of US service rifles to. So what 'gun rights' has Obama championed? Mexican cartels?

You mean he wants to reinstate the republican Brady bill

Lets also not forget jp that President Obama expanded gun owners rights where ronald reagan , george h w bush and george WMD LIAR bush had refused to do so.

Well neal, you are wrong again. This story was on every major network, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, ect...etc...Not just on XOF.

The Doctor is a Hero & jp I support anyone buying and owning any legal firearm that they want with only two exceptions, convicted felons and the mentally ill. For your information, I am a Texas certified Firearms instructor and have been for more than 20 years.

Lets not forget that the Texas Republicans are the only Government officials that restrict gun owners rights in Tx

Yea... bet they say he should have just DIED, along with others, so the laws were obeyed.

Boy, I can't wait to see the anti-gun rants from Don on this one.
