(Pizza Slut sucks)
firing him over violating that policy is perfectly justified. typically, carrying a gun like that just increases risks for yourself. He should`ve just coughed up whatever money he had and ran. The fact that he had a gun put him in more danger, and his employer can`t support that.
A young woman ordered a pizza. Her fiance waited for the pizza delivery guy in the lobby of their apartment building. When the delivery guy arrived, the fiance pulled a gun on him. The delivery guy pulled his own gun and shot the fiance several times. The fiance somehow survived. The police ruled the shooting justified self-defense. Pizza Hut suspended (and later fired) the delivery guy for violating corporate policy. The delivery guy was so shaken by the shooting incident that he couldn`t talk to the reporter.
Oh, and what about the Supremacy Clause? "The Supremacy Clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. treaties as "the supreme law of the land." The Constitution is the highest form of law in the American legal system. State judges are required to uphold it, even if state laws or constitutions conflict with it."
Does that still apply with Corporate policies?
What strikes me is that the majority of people who feel sorry for the pizza gut are from the US where it is common to own a gun. The majority of people against old pizza boy are from Countries that have stricter gun laws. This suggests that growing up in a cetain culture influences opinion. Does this mean there is no individual and unbiased thought, just a tendancy to so with what you know?
guess what: so few criminals have guns even our police dont carry them.

Nothing you say has any creditability.
Maybe the guy has never shot someone multiple times before. Killing somebody in self defense still feels like murder to non-sociopaths, retard.
There are, however, an inproportiante amount of stabbings.
The kid tried to kill him. Doesn`t matter if its a kid, a 40 year old moron, or a grandma, they have a dangerous weapon and are opening fire.
The person who fired him deserves to be hung, then slowly tortured. The delivery guy deserves a permit to carry a bazooka.
He`s probably upset about shooting a kid. It was justified. His actions saved his life. But it doesn`t dawn on you until it`s over that you`ve just sevearly hurt a kid.
Mall shooting in England12 Y.O. girl killed by gun in EnglandMan shot dead in Manchester, England
Making guns illegal does absolutely no good. I think England makes the case quite well.
seriously, at best he wouldnt have more than $500 on him(not including personal assets), so what a dumbass thing to do.
Also, the story said the mugger survived, so his sentence should include castration. That dirtbag should be denied the privilege of procreation.
Bullets on the other hand should be banned and carry a sentence of life in prison for possession.
1) No one will drat with him ever again
2) People will be like "oh hey I saw you on the news! you poor guy. Here`s some extra tips for you"
I`m glad I live down under.I don`t know anyone (expect police) who carry a gun when they go out.
I don`t know anyone who goes out unarmed, with the exception of some little kids.
Yeah- only if you`re a gun-waving american lunatic.
They both should`ve been shot and killed just to get two more useless tools wiped off of the earth.
no your `lot` just killed 6 million jews, right?
Yes, maybe this would have worked. BUT you don`t know. Maybe the kid would have shot the driver after getting what he wanted."
yes, because that makes sense??maybe the kid would have shot the guy when he saw him draw a gun?
"Appeasement is never the answer. I would have thought Chamberlain would have taught the Brits that back in WWII. He "appeased" Hitler and wow, that really worked out well."
Wow, so close to fulfilling Godwins law it`s almost a shame you didn`t. I suppose you should have learnt that "ignoring the problem is never the answer" from the same thing? Or we could just ignore WWII entirely due to its total lack of relevance.
Yes, maybe this would have worked. BUT you don`t know. Maybe the kid would have shot the driver after getting what he wanted.
Appeasement is never the answer. I would have thought Chamberlain would have taught the Brits that back in WWII. He "appeased" Hitler and wow, that really worked out well.
i`ve always found it funny how no one thinks gun laws can stop criminals from carrying guns. works over here.
I`ll be angry when Pizza Hut sues him.
Seriously, just drop the money. You dont need a gun to defend yourself. Killing someone trying to steal your money wont make your life any better. It will just put doubt in others about how mentaly sane you are ( case in point ) and you just end up losing the money you would have lost anyway.
The NRA and anyone who think that owning a gun is the right thing to do are unfair, uncivil, unsafe, uncouth, unfunny, unfeeling, unbalanced, underhanded, unpardonable and unprofessional.
Flame on rainbow man.
Anyway, just goes to show you... never try to rob those heavily armed pizza delivery men.
It has nothing to do with freedom.
So you can buy ballistic missles? No. I guess you`re not free then? So you can buy marajuana? Nope. You can in alot of freer countries.
And my personal favourite: You imprison over 2 million people. More than anyone else. That includes countries that roughly quadruple your population like China and India.
How free is a country with more of it`s population in cages than anywhere else? from Straight Dope: Most countries, including almost all our industrialized peers, have imprisonment rates under 200 [per 100`000]. (The USA has 701 per 100`000, more than anyone else).
while you`re at it, look up free speech zones.
You don`t have a Sonic?
and i would be glad to be suspended from my job if that ever happen to me.
aven: He want his MONEY. Tard."
your an idiot, your saying you would rather be mugged and possibly dead rather than carrying a gun for your own protection?
Good luck, I hope I see you in the obituaries.
Or get you killed.
Whether or not guns are outlawed is irrelevant to the fact that people will get them illegally, possibly resulting in more shootings to not get in trouble for illegally owning a gun.
We don`t have mall and school shooting every other month. Statistically speaking you have a greater chance of being struck by lightening then being shot in school.
And this is a perfect example to why guns should remain legal. It`s not guns that kill people, it`s the individual wielding the gun.
And I`m pretty sure if you publicly threatened to assassinate the Prime Minister, or the queen herself, you would be spending a lengthy time in prison.
The right to bear arms is not a freedom I want.Then again..i dont live in a country where you can be locked up for saying you want to kill the president!
Punk kid - puts himself and his victim at risk for the sake of a very few dollars.
Pizza guy - kills kid to protect those same few bucks.
Moral - Eat at Wendy`s
I do feel sorry for the guy, and I see it from his point of view as well, but rules are rules and Pizza Hut are going to protect themselves first, everyone else second, though I do think the guy needs some compensation here, as he was put in danger by the companys policys!
Just as well I despise guns, corperate companys and and the screwed up leagal system in western countries!
America will NEVER make guns illegal. Here we have a thing called "freedom" And besides, making guns illegal just takes guns away from those not interested in breaking the law.
If we had tighter gun control laws right now, then a lot more people would get shot. I know that where I live, a neighboring city is thinking about getting rid of it`s police force entirely because they can`t afford it. In my city, the police take an hour and a half to get here, and I can walk to the station in fifteen minutes. I`m not allowed to own a gun as long as I live with my parents, since my step-father is a convicted felon, but once I`m out on my own, I might look into getting one.
yeah, but he killed the kid (in self-defense) ... i`d say that warrants some much-needed time off ...
The Dominos delivery guy crashed into my car and the dude didnt even have insurance... and nothing happened to him -.-
This was just a sad attempt for money by moron teens who `love` each other and had their fun, so mommy and daddy disowned them.
We only hear a part of the story due to him being unable to talk about it. They may be really nice to him at work and are pulling everything they can to get him a green status. Then again, the other side can also be true.
But from what rumors I`ve heard of delivery personnel, and the risks they take GOING UP TO COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS HOMES, I`d say at least mace should be a requirement for self defense. I can see where a gun can tear the line.
