What the Philly doctor shooting says about the media and guns

We now know that the Philadelphia-area nutjob who killed his mental health caseworker probably would have taken out many more victims at the hospital had his psychiatrist not been armed and fought back.   The killer was armed with 39 more rounds than he got a chance to use.  We discussed this at length on my radio show Friday.  Shortly after the story broke, the vast majority of the initial media attention focused not on the shooter and the question of why a mentally unstable man was in possession of a gun, but instead on the doctor, questioning why he was armed.  We broke this coverage down on my show from a journalistic standpoint.  That clip is below.
