    I'm glad he made it out ok. It's a shame that Pizza Hut has a no carry policy sending their drivers out on such a risky job. Thankfully I can't stand their pizza so I don't support them anyway. I'd like to know what happened to the little punks who attacked him.

    It appears he had two enemies that night - his attackers who would have taken away his livelihood if they had their way & his employer who did take away his livelihood.

    I'll never eat a pizza from Pizza Hut again. Would they have preferred to have their employer killed?

    Here is an example of the good guy with a gun; a hard working citizen, providing for his family and making his contribution to our way of life. Just goes to show you what human life is worth to these predators; willing to kill for the change a guy was carrying and do it in such a brazen manner.
    Too bad we don't know what happened to the bad guys, too bad he didn't empty his weapon as I would have, too bad he didn't hit more of them, so many "too bads".
    I'm happy he made it thru that night with his life. If anyone knows of a fund to help this guy please post it, I personally would contribute.

    BTW, Pizza hut is off my list now.

    OMG, the fifth most dangerous job in America? And for this they get the big bucks? Why would anyone take that job?

    I am glad he is alright, but why would he take another job delivering pizzas? Heck, FedEx probably has a safer driver program, better benefits, etc. if he really wants to deliver stuff.

    Yes, thats what they would have preferred. Good guys cant defend them selves, we're just supposed to be victims.

    The local Pizza Hut, which my son delivered pizzas for one summer, went out of business several years ago. In addition to unfriendly weapons policies, they make lousy pizza.

    More proof that most large corporations don't care about their employees safety.

    On a side note, I hope he just shoved the gun in his pocket without a holster for the filming of the video and doesn't really pocket carry like that. If not, sooner or later he's going to have more problems to deal with.

    Firing an employee for daring defend his own life = effectively preferring he'd had no ability to save his own life, yes.

    No more Pizza Hut for me either. I never really liked their pizza anyway.
    I busted a mirror and got seven years bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.

    The prime directive of any corporation is "preserve the corporate assets". All corps are effectively run by their legal departments. An employee is easily replaceable.

    So many issues here. Interested in your opinions.

    Wow, my wife and I literally just discussed ordering a Pizza Hut pizza for dinner this evening.

    I'm glad that I saw this first. They're on the same list as CTD and Dick's Sporting Goods now... Not one dime of my money!
