i wouldnt want to work for anyone that was against the basic human right to defend ones-self. It seems like a blessing to me

Agreed.

Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

AutoZone Worker Saves Boss From Armed Robber, Gets Fired

Workplaces have rules.
Break them, you get fired.

......Workplaces have rules.

Ok, now imagine your son/daughter is in danger. Should you employer break the rules to save him/her or let them die ? ...Would you fire your employer if they did break the rules to save your son/daughter or for doing nothing not breaking your rules ?

Part of the problem here is that the title of this thread is a sensationalist lie.
He wasnt fired for "pulling gun on robber", he was fired for, and they are quite specific on this, the reason of "...prohibit weapons in the workplace."

So your analogy doesnt work. He would have been fired for the same offense even if no robber had ever turned up, and he had never been in danger of his life at any time, ever. Its just that in this case, head office found out, whereeas otherwise they simply wouldnt have known.

For all we know, he'd probably been breaking the "no weapons in the workplace" for all the years he'd been there.

So to reword your question more accurately:
Ok, now imagine your son/daughter might one day possibly be in danger. Should you employer break the rules every day?
