i want to clap along with these 'smilies' and yeah, the jokes do lighten the mood. i'm all for that, but i'm just so pissed at the shop owner who slaps you in the face for probably stopping a future robbery at his own shop. oh, that's just too much to fathom in his narrow mind. ...i just don't get it. sounds pathetically weak in mine mind and i don't want to know him or how he thinks at all. his day will come and i won't shed a tear when he gets his. reacting on your own weakness is one thing. reacting to the media, with your weakness, then giving in even more, is just plain sad.
What's this button do?
If the guy was an honest hard-working citizen, then he wouldn't be dead....period.
"oh man, you;ve got pizza sauce all over you..."
"no. thats not pizza sauce...by the way, i solved that robbery problem...."
Regardless of what the owner thinks about the bad guy, I would think that he would have SOME concern over his employees. Apparently not.
The cop most likely saved the lives of future employees. The owner should be applauding instead of whining.

No, it's not worth it. But it's an improvement."Somebody got killed, and it's not worth it," said Humberto Rodriguez, owner of Milano's Pizza ....
Read the article, the guy is worried about retaliation. And in chicago, he cant legally own a handgun let alone carry one.
"Rodriguez said he worries about retaliation at his family-owned business, where his drivers have been robbed 10 times in the last eight months.
"I feel sorry for the families," he said. "It's not their fault. It's not my fault either."
Which is why I carry as a pizza jockey.

Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.
If he's worried abotu retaliation then he wouldn't have gone to the cops to start, as everyone knows the streets does not look kindly to those who enlist aid of the police...even when they are right and sensible to do so.
Either the pizza guy needs to fold up shop and move his operaions, which likely is very costly and unpossible for practical reasons.
Then he might hire an off-duty police toward providing security on site. In regard to his drivers he might hire police or other private security to escort the drivers.
His options are thin and the cost high no matter what angle you look at it.
Asidefromgoing out of business or forming a coalition amongst other similar business owners to enact a CCW law for all (!), he's pretty much going to have to live & work at the mercy of the BGs, as per the law.
Here's to the cop that ended the career of the BG! I would much rather a crook die, than a pizza driver, trying to make an honest living!
Here's to the police!
I said extra pepperoni and HOLD the lead!
Can't wait for news to hit about this new kind of "Chicago style" pizza. Delivered with 30 rounds or less or the next one's free?

Whatever happened to the good old Chicago typewriter?
Two observations on my part:
1) If this had been a REAL pizza dude who had shot the BG, the pizza dude would be in jail....remember this is Chicago, NO GUNS ALLOWED by the serfs.
2) The man that started Second Chance body armor, was a pizza dude. He got into a gunfight while delivering. He won! Afterwards he developed a vest that could withstand pistol rounds. He would demonstrate them buy putting one on & shooting himself in the chest.
