Pizza Hut: Still Opposed to Legal Self-defense

Backlash: Pizza Hut Delivery Driver Fired For Shooting Armed Robber Well this was never in doubt really. Pizza Hut wants people to die for pizza, rather than be able to defend themselves.

You see a few weeks ago, one of their delivery drivers walked into an ambush. He thought he was delivering a pizza, but he ran into an armed robbery attempt. A very unsuccessful attempt, in that he shot the would-be robber, and the robber's girlfriend was arrested for conspiracy. All very legal and fine.

But that isn't what Pizza Hut wants its drivers to do. They want the drivers to be disarmed victims. What do you think?
"You tell me any Iowan that was in his situation, that had a gun put to his head, how they would've reacted differently," state Sen. Brad Zaun of Urbandale said. "I think it's the wrong decision by Pizza Hut and I will not be buying any more Pizza Hut products."
Yum Brands, the parent company of Pizza Hut, also owns Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Long John Silver's, and A&W. None of them will be getting any of my money either.
