Pizza Hut deliveryman James Spiers thought he was making a routine
delivery, but he was walking into an ambush. As Spiers approached,
an armed man sprang at him with a gun, but Spiers, a concealed-carry
permit holder, was no easy target. Police say Spiers struggled hard
with the assailant until he was able to produce his handgun. "It was
a long ordeal ... my life was, without a doubt, in danger," Spiers
recalls. Spiers shot the suspect three times. The suspect fled and
was arrested at the hospital. Pizza Hut summarily fired Spiers, a
10-year employee, citing a corporate policy forbidding employees
from carrying firearms. To voice your displeasure, call Pizza Hut
