Doctor shoots armed patient in "gun free" Philly hospital

"Psychiatrist Lee Silverman worked in a gun-free hospital, but pulled out a gun in his desk to subdue an armed patient, who had just shot [murdered] his caseworker. The case renews the issue: Should doctors and teachers be armed?"

"As police prepare murder charges against the wounded patient, focus is shifting to the gun-toting psychiatrist who stopped the mayhem, likely saving other lives."
