    Ok, I'm going play devil's advocate here. There's a legal doctrine called "respondeat superior" which means that, in many circumstances, the employer is responsible for the actions of an employee performed within the course of employment. If a Pizza Hut delivery guy on a delivery hits someone with his car through negligence, Pizza Hut's responsible. If a Pizza Hut delivery guy shoots at a BG, misses, hits a bystander, Pizza Hut's responsible. Also, there are way, imperfect as they may be, for Pizza Hut to check on someone's comptency as a driver. Also, Pizza Hut can insure against driver negligence. Seems to me that there's a rational reason for having the no firearm policy on the books. I'm sure many of you can think of at least one person that was next to you on a shooting range that you wouldn't want to be held responsible for their actions while shooting.

    Quoted from EdC, "I'm sure many of you can think of at least one person that was next to you on a shooting range that you wouldn't want to be held responsible for their actions while shooting."

    Very true, but I am just saying that these guys and girls work in a dangerous occupation. How can we as a people not feel for them as they work trying to make ends meet, while dodging thugs, BG's or whatever you want to call them. They are not LEO's or soldiers who are trained to respond appropriately. So are we saying they should just suck it up while being thrown to the wolves?

    What you have said is true. However Pizza Hut carries liability insurance against their employees causing car accidents. They could also carry liability insurance against an employee in a shooting situation That they choose not to says (in a way) that they value the lives of their employees less than the premiums would cost them.

    IMHO.

    Just a little thought, could Pizza Hut claim that a self defense shooting would not fall under the scope of employment, therefore removing itself from vicarious liability of actions of an agent?
