If you think about a wacko's mentality they will seek out the most vulnerable and/or most densely populated areas to kill and do harm to the most people, viz., shopping centers; theaters; schools; hospitals, universities; military bases, courts, restaurants, office buildings, stores, trains, airplanes, children's camps, etc.

My favorite places to avoid after dark are the gas pumps and ATMs.

Exactly my point.  How stupid and short sighted...and just for political correctness' sake alone.

As an intern in a Richmond, Va. hospital I walked out of a suture room and a banger holding the waiting room at bay turned and put a pistol against my nose...we eventually talked him down.  Same year, the police brought in a gang member on a stretcher handcuffed and foot cuffed to the stretcher.  They removed the cuffs and left him, at which time I examined him and removed a pistol strapped to his ankle.  We've had nut cases waving pistols on the hospital floors at times, so far without consequence.  The very places where innocent workers are most at risk are those that require them to be unarmed victims.  Many of us carry where we shouldn't...no telling how many or who as nobody advertises it.  Marte Suo Tutus.

Holy Crap ! !  Common Sense IS still alive among at least ONE hospital administration!

Additionally to the COunt's point...What are ER Doctors, nurses and staff supposed to do when the gang-banger who just tried to kill the other gang-banger(on the gurney) decides to come back and finish the job and take the witnesses out at the same time??  >:(

I firmly believe most hospitals would not be as understanding for a violation of policy....even though a tragedy was prevented.

Local media is reporting that the gunman has been charged.  They are also reporting that the psychiatrist is still on staff at the hospital and that the hospital is looking forward to his return to serving their patients.

"The hospital released a statement Friday saying it was thankful for the “brave and difficult action” taken by Silverman and his colleagues. The statement said the doctor remains a full member of the medical staff. “We look forward to Dr. Silverman’s return to serving patients at our hospital,” said a Mercy Health System spokesperson."

They are not all concentrated on the left coast; they are more than counter balanced on the least coast which is closer to Darby PA, the sit of this almost very tragic incident. Kudos to the very alert and prepared Psychiatrist.

Count, points well made!  It is clear that the armed and ready psychiatrist saved many lives including his own by ignoring a stupid rule...unfortunately he'll probably suffer the consequence of having done so. 

Liberals all seem to live in LaLa Land where wishes (and mind-altering substances?) make dreams come true.  I blame Walt Disney for some of America's problems...he convinced several generations that Bambi gave a damn, that mice are just funny little people (ignoring leptospirosis, bubonic plague, and other vermin-born illness), that bacon comes from grocery stores but not from slaughtered pigs, and that a prince on a white horse will happen along to rescue even the dumbest fair damsel from a life of flipping burgers and watching soap operas.

Indeed. It wasn't me. I guess maybe it goes to show what effect the current status of the company has on resale value. It appears that this firearm had gone down in resale value as far as what one is willing to pay - if it really sold for $1700 at the end of last year.  But then again how do you explain the R400 series farmingdale that sold for near $2000 at the end of last month?  Yes, someone got a good deal on this pup - as it changes hands yet again.

So I've been thinking about this still.  I wonder if keywording has anything to do it.  When listed as an R9S, it is not picked up in a title search for "R9" on Gunbroker.  However, if you had searched for "Rohrbaugh" in the title without any model designation whatsoever, it would have shown up.  Just a thought...  So in summary, a search for "Rohrbaugh R9" in the title would not turn up this gun...not sure if that matters or not.  I guess it depends how people search...
