    Shooting last night in Altoona PA

    Saw this on local news this evening.

    Last night at 11.00pm a 46 year old Dominoes delivery driver was held up by a punk 14 year old who was armed. He would not co-operate and the punk fired three times - but the gun failed.

    The punk was caught fortunately because cops were in vicinity - and he is now under lock and key. I have no idea so far what the gun was tho if three trigger pulls then either a DA semi or a revo. Darned miracle it failed.

    Goes to show - anyone who is a pizza jockey should be able to carry. Of course had this punk been nailed by the guy being armed - we'd see the media making a big thing about ''teen gets shot''


    http://www.wajctv.com/ is the station's web site where I think there will be an item on it, tho not yet checked.

    Thank God the weapon malfunctioned. When I was a teenager I drove for Domino's and it was a lot of fun. The idea that I might get robbed was far from my mind.
    It certainly is a different world these days.

    How can you "fire" three times and a gun fail?

    Wouldn't it be the BG pulled the trigger three times but the gun failed? The media is strange!

    Man, that was a close one though, I bet he does little time if any do to his age.

    Poor proof reading on behalf of the rag that printed it.

    reasons for:

    It was a true "Saturday night special".

    The kid just stole it and it was MT.

    The kid just stole it and didn't know how it worked.

    The junkie the kid bought the stolen gun from sold a defective gun.

    It was a semi and no round was chambered.

    The stolen gun was full of snap caps.

    and my favorite... the Pizza drivers Guardian Angel was working overtime.

    The pizza places around here have a no weapons policy (but not the Thai place, their drivers are packing ).

    I asked one time why they had that policy. I was told it was for insurance purposes and that they could be held liable if a driver shot/killed someone.

    Me, being the jerk I am, said abit louder so that the employees could hear, "So your bottom line is more important than the lives of your employees, Right?"

    The manager politely asked me to leave... oh well

    I heard later that some of the employees asked about it, for an answer and found themselves unemployeed .

    If I were a pizza jockey, I would carry no matter what.
