    Montana Doctor Fired For CCW

    This hospital must be a gun-free zone.

    BUTTE, Mont. (AP) -- A doctor at St. James Healthcare in Butte has been fired after bringing a concealed handgun into the building.

    Hospital officials did not release his name.

    St. James CEO Jim Kiser says the physican worked under contract and was not a full-time hospital employee. Kiser says the situation arose Wednesday when the doctor told staff he had a handgun. Staff then called police.

    Police Capt. George Skuelitich says the gun was confiscated but the doctor was not arrested. He says the doctor has an Alabama permit to carry a concealed weapon, but it is not valid in Montana

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Well the part about MT not allowing carry with an AL permit is true, but I wonder two things.

    1. Why did he tell the staff he had a handgun.

    2. Why did they up and call the police without just telling him to get it out of the building?

    Maybe it wasn't as dumb as simply blabbing to HR or his superiors (whomever that'd be in this case) that he was carrying, but rather he mentioned in a moment of non-discretion to someone who is a sheep or who couldn't keep his or her mouth shut.

    Just more proof that "no one need know".

    Sounds like open mouth = put in both feet.!!

    By that account he was the agent of his own demise.

    Staff then called police.
    Bit darned excessive !

    I think there is more going on here than is obvious from the o.p.'s post.

    1) Had an AL permit not recognized in Montana. O.K. cops gave him a pass, but that by itself indicates at least some poor judgment.

    2) Blabbed; made it known somehow that he had a gun. Again, poor judgment.

    I had a neighbor, a doc, a block away. This was years and years ago. For whatever reason, he shot up his house--turned the sofa into swiss cheese; then ran from cops responding to gun fire in city limits. So, where'd he run to? A no-guns campus building!!

    I have a feeling this guy in Montana was perhaps similarly not using good judgment.

    I think it takes a lot for a hospital to "can" a doc. There's more to the story, I think.
