While it was against hospital policy, Dr. Lee Silverman brought his own handgun to work, of which he had a permit, and was able to save lives by shooting an armed patient who had already killed a case-worker in the hospital. Silverman shot the armed patient in the stomach twice and then another doctor and case worker from nearby were able to subdue the patient who survived.
Dr. Lee Silverman has proved the point that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Even the police acknowledge that more people may have been shot if it weren’t for Silverman having brought his gun to work.
But this is a story that you likely won’t hear about in the mainstream media because enough bodies weren’t piled up to get their attention.
