Kinda neat, but its not a good idea to try and block theifs (or wannabes in this case) you never know what kind of heat they may be packing or how far theyre willing to go to escape capture. Best thing to do would be getting the license plate number and simply report that to the police. Even if they were expensive tools they arent worth your life.

aegis1294 I agree, some people can get into fight or flight mode, and will go to extremes to not get caught.

aegis1294 did you learn nothing from Spiderman? He didn't stop that thief when he could have and then the guy killed uncle Ben. With great fork lift comes great responsibility.

holygod So you block them with a forklift and then 2 people get out and aim a gun at your head and say "move it outta the way, NOW!".  What do you do, drive the forklift out of their way, or risk 2 bullets to the head?

monkwarrior In all seriousness though, you'd be lucky if you were even given the opportunity to drive out of their way.

I work retail and I knew someone who attempted to stop a shoplifter. He told the shoplifter "I don't want to persecute just give it back". the perp literally just reached into his jacket and shot him between the eyes and left like it was nothing. 

I'm the manager now, and its my policy that no one is allowed to follow or even accuse people shoplifting. If someone comes in to rob the store, I've told my associates to just give them what they want, and ask "do you want paper or plastic with that?". there's nothing in those tills worth someones life.

monkwarrior Or, a dozen fork-lift drivers aim guns back at them and say 'So, what's it like to be a rocket scientist?'.

Gun scenario's aside.  You have one (1) 2,000 lb car carrying 2-3 punks, vs half a dozen 10,000 lb forklifts and plenty of hard-working, pissed-off union brothers.

I know which side I'd lay money on.

monkwarrior Actually, there are three (3) answers to that:

  1. There are businesses that have policy that allows you to carry guns if you can do so legally. 
  2. There are businesses that have no rules either way, which allows you to carry if you can do so legally.
  3. There are businesses that have rules against concealed carry. (note: this does not mean that it does not happen. Also note: in my state, the company can have a 'no guns allowed' policy, but they legally cannot keep you from keeping one in your vehicle UNLESS that vehicle in on company property that is fenced, guarded and secure.)

Currently there is a 9mm in my briefcase. It's legal.

megrendel I've never heard of the last rule there, I've known a few people who got fired for doing that. I suppose the loophole is you can have a gun in your trunk but you have no right to a job. We don't even allow smoking on company property much less guns.
