Better Fired Than Dead

A clerk in a convenience store (that is conveniently not named) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, heard about several convenience store robberies where the clerk was shot or otherwise injured, and finally brought his gun to work. It was the right thing to do, because his store WAS the next one on the robbers' list. Two gunmen came in and pointed guns at his face, demanding money. Whereupon he drew his own gun and told them to get out. One shot him through the arm, He did not fire a shot, but they fled. All good, you say. Not to the executives of the unnamed convenience store. They fired him. His response? "I accept the risks. I understand working overnight at a gas station is dangerous, what I don't accept is a company that won't take care of those dangers for their employees and instead fires me for protecting myself.” This situation is caused by the liberal judges who allow suits by ROBBERS against those who resisted their efforts to rob them to proceed, and who gave out large "judgments" to the ROBBERS, even though they were committing a CRIME when they got in trouble. It's one thing not to do anything to protect its workers, but quite another to FIRE him for defending himself. In any case, it's not that hard to find another clerking job, and that's better than being dead. (AmmoLand)
