Call for safety

The Medford pharmacy shootings spurred reaction from lawmakers to examine how to protect pharmacists and patrons during robberies. The problem was thrust into the spotlight again on New Year's Eve, when an ATF agent and an alleged robber were killed during another pharmacy robbery in Seaford. At left, Sen.
