Default Armed Doctor stops hospital shooter.

Wonder how much traction this will get in the media........not much I fear.

Seems the latest "mass-shooting" was not a "mass-shooting" because there was a good guy with a gun.

Lets see if they try to prosecute him for having a gun on hospital property. You can bet his life has changed and so will his place of employment.

They don't appear to have any grounds to prosecute him but they could certainly fire him. They will catch a lot of flack if they do though.

The article said that employees were not allowed to be armed.

Company policy is not law.

That all depends on who owns the company.

I've worked for a company that has a No Guns policy. I carried anyway. It's concealed for a reason. My immediate supervisor knew it. He was told by another employee who also carried that I also carried. He came to me and told me, I know something I don't want to know, so I'm acting as I don't know and we'll never have the discussion again, but I just want to let you know that it is against company policy. He said he'd never ever say a word and that the other guy and myself would have to promise that anything ever went down, that he didn't know and that we'd need to know that we're losing our jobs if something did happen. I said fair enough, we'll never bring it up again, and I don't even know why you had to know, I thought me and the other employee had a secret, and I was fully aware of the policy, but fact is, I'd rather be unemployed than dead, so I made the choice to break policy and keep it to myself. Our boss went on to say, I actually don't agree with the policy, and I'm glad you 2 level heads are here and in the event something does go down, I'll feel much safer.

What is the hospital going to do? Fire the Dr? OK so what. There are plenty of hospitals needing Dr's and I'll assure you, if it happened here, I'd be his next patient when I needed a Doc.

Good for him, More Dr's should carry to protect themselves and their patients’
