    Sounds like the safest Taco Bell in Cleveland. Until corporate is stupid enough to fire them.

    I think they should offer FREE counseling to the one that got away.:wink:

    For some reason I keep thinking, "gang related." Hope not.

    Yeah I was struggling with the fact that three employees there (our of how many? Five? Six?) were not only armed but shot at the robbers.

    I heard five in total, but right, what are the odds three of them mount a defense? The in-store security video should be interesting.

    Two of them were 19. You must be 21 to be issued a license in Ohio. There is some debate on whether 18-20 can carry openly, but it is doubtful they were carrying openly while working at Taco Bell.

    From Fox News Report

    At the time of shooting, I imagine 3 employees could handle the store. With all armed I am confident they had discussed the issue and potential response plans.

    There should be a law against premeditated defense. What's this world coming to when a BG has to wonder if he'll be going home at the end of his shift?

    Wait, you went to the range and actually practiced hitting your target? :lol:

    Reminds me of when I worked at Autozone several years ago. Somewhere (Virginia, if I recall), an Autozone employee went out to his vehicle and retrieved his gun to stop an armed robbery in progress in that store. I don't know if any shots were actually fired, but the robbery was stopped. Autozone has an expressly written policy about employees being armed, and even prohibiting guns in vehicles on their property.

    I imagine his manager had to say something like, "Thanks man, for saving my life. I'm sorry that I have to fire you now".

    I was always armed while working there. Not to protect their money, which I couldn't give a crap about, but to protect my life, and others.
