    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    +1. Glad it turned out ok, but that could have turned out ugly for them. Sometimes instincts take over when the opportunity presents itself and a swiftly applied blow to the gun hand can turn the tide. Don't mess with a guy who knows how to use an oversized pizza spatula.

    Those pizza peels are as flimsy as all get out, I'm glad it worked for him but it wouldn't be my first choice.

    However, there is this 8ft long fork that is used to pop bubbles in the dough as it cooks......THAT might be interesting if properly used.

    I've always heard it's best to work for an Indy (independent rather than chain store) coz the managers don't have to take any crap. LOL

    They were lucky that the BG wasn't prepared to shoot. Glad that everything turned out OK for the good guys.

    Glad it worked out for him, but he better have something better in mind for the next time.

    good move...well played...never let up...just keep on charging until youve won the fight..even if the guy got a shot off i have a feeling the shop owner would have managed to beat him down...

    NYC will be meeting later this morning to discuss the blatant use of this spatula. We must have laws protecting our citizens against such a clearly dangerous weapon. We suggest that they make them more to the consistency of a "fly swatter" to help protect our citizenry!

    "Protecting the piza profits came first."

    What!?!!?

    Umm no lady, they were _protecting_ themself as in defense of self.
    To heck with a pizza and some printed paper.

    This dude ran up on them with a gun in hand stating he was armed and had intent to use it.
    This man took action to STOP a threatening terrorist!

    If you're gonna tell a story, then tell it like it actually is!
    In the end of the video they effectively have the owner and his assistant come off as lucky fools. : (
