Pizza Hut Is Getting To Be A Pretty Dangerous Place To Work

Just 10 days ago PP over at the War College proclaimed the death of the 2nd Amendment when a Pizza Hut delivery driver in Iowa was suspended for carrying a gun on the job. The driver ended up shooting a would be robber with that gun but PP and many of his readers decided that Pizza Hut was trampling on the driver's right to bear arms when they disciplined him for breaking company policy. You see, Pizza Hut expressly forbids their employees from carrying weapons on the job.
I’m kind of speechless after reading it here. Someone robs you, and puts a gun to your head, and they expect you to use your amazing “pizza hut training” to report such incidents to the police?
Wouldn't you know it this morning's paper gives us an example of exactly why businesses like Pizza Hut do not allow employees to pack heat and as it turns out a Sioux Falls Pizza Hut is involved.
A Sioux Falls Pizza Hut worker was arrested Sunday night after he threatened a co-worker with a 12-inch knife, police spokesman Sam Clemens said.

The 17-year-old suspect and another 17-year-old boy got into an argument while working at the restaurant at 4501 E. 26th St. shortly after 8 p.m., Clemens said.

"One of them went outside to cool off, and the other one grabbed a knife and came outside and threatened the victim with the knife," he said.
Gee, I wonder what would have happened if the 17 year old hot head in question had been carrying a gun instead of the 12 inch knife? Retribution is a lot easier when you can do it from a distance.
