Boycott Pizza Hut For Firing an Employee Who Lawfully Defended Himself

As KCCI Channel 8 reported, James Spiers, a Pizza Hut driver who had a concealed handgun permit, lawfully carried his concealed weapon while making a delivery.  The driver was attacked by an armed criminal and fired his gun in self defense, saving his life and injuring the robber (who is now in jail).  Pizza hut first suspended, then fired this law abiding citizen who used his lawfully carried gun to defend himself.  Why?  Because Pizza Hut has a policy against allowing its employees to lawfully defend themselves. Apparently the police, and the State’s Attorney are satisfied that this was legitimate self defense, but that is not good enough for Pizza Hut.

For that reason, I am boycotting Pizza Hut, and encourage you to do the same.  You can also contact Pizza Hut and let them know that you don’t approve of their unconscionable no-self-defense policy.

    Delivering any thing but especially pizzas is dangerous work. People actually order pizzas just to rob the drivers. The message pizza hut is sending to it’s customers and employees alike is that they are more concerned about the company’s image of being politically correct than the safety of their delivery drivers. It’s disgusting.
