Default ccw stops mass murderer

a doctor ccwing in PA hospital stopped a spree killer. of course this will be used as a reason to keep guns out of the hands of civilians. the murderous thug didnt kill enough to satisfy the blood thirsty bloomberg obama or sarah brady before he was shot by the good doctor.

DARBY, Pa. – A doctor who was grazed by gunfire from a patient in his office at a suburban hospital on Thursday helped stop him by apparently returning fire with his own weapon and severely injuring him, but not before a caseworker was killed, authorities said.

The patient opened fire after entering the office with the caseworker, District Attorney Jack Whelan said. Witnesses reported hearing yelling before the gunshots.

Good for the Doc but... How do we know he stopped any more than his own murder?

"Loud shouting" before gunfire indicates that the doc as the target. Have not heard of a single "mass shooter" shouting at anyone or being shouted at, they typically just walk in a start shooting.

This guy waited to be escorted to an office.

Sound to me like he was after that specific Doctor

a good portion of these shooters START with a specific target then branch out until stopped or out of ammo. hence the dead social worker. if he was not a mass murderer he would have only kept shooting at the doctor and no one else.

so its a spree killer stopped before the spree

Don't think we have enough info to make that leap.

Spree killers typically load heavy with several guns and hundreds of rounds.

The only weapon info in the article was "two guns recovered" and we know both men were armed.

For all we know this perp may have had 1 handgun and no reloads... And the other victim escorted the perp to the office where it all went down.

Perhaps she lunged for the gun and got shot for it?

Point is "we don't know yet"

laughner had one gun.

nadal hassan (sp?) ft hood had one gun

Aaron Alexis one gun

number of firearms is irrelevant to a spree killer. thankfully the doctor stopped him before we could find out how many more this wackjob was going to murder. somehow i doubt the news media will be at all interested in providing any press time to this story as its a backpager even on fox... it doesnt toe the party line of guns in the hands of law abiding people stops murderers

My understanding, from listening to radio news out of Philly, is that this was another psychiatric patient that was looking to extract their personal form of justice.

Uh... He's a psychiatrist. I doubt he's that great at removing bullets. He may have had a surgical background before, but most psychiatrists I know are better with a pen and paper, and a prescription pad.

Thank god not everyone in the med field has their heads lodged in their rear ends.

Saw this reported on the local news. I didn't think they would mention that a LAC shot the bad guy, they did at the very end of the story. That was promptly followed by telling the viewers that the hospital has a no firearms policy.

WTF! The bad guy violated the policy and killed a woman. The doctor violated the policy and saved lives. The doctor should be hailed as a hero, not crapped on for violating the no weapons policy.
