On Tuesday of this week, a 51 year female employee of the Mass General Hospital in Boston shot and killed a physician in a hospital office. She then killed herself. The reason is not known.
This incident suggests that metal detectors be in place at the entrances to all hospitals to prevent guns from being transported into the hospital by employees, patients and vistors.
Since there tends to be a rather high incidence of violence at hospital ERs, it would seem that metal detectors be in place at the entrances to ERs, also.
What do you think?
It's already being done in many urban hospitals. And, yes, unfortunately, it is necessary...
This gun wasn't registered in any State as far as anyone can tell. So was it bought on the streets?
Wonder why the woman even owned a gun.
ALso...she had about 40 rounds of amo in her Beacon Hill apartment.
There a thousands of 4 legged rats on Beacon Hill, but I never heard of anyone shooting rats to rid the City of rhodents.
