One More Reason Against Gun Control

James William Spiers III is alive today because he is the proud holder of a hand-gun permit. While delivering a pizza to some apartments in Des Moines, Iowa, Spiers was confronted by an armed robber who held a gun to his head, demanding money.

After a struggle, Spiers either managed to wrestle the gun away from the robber, or used his own and fired off shots at the robber as he ran away, wounding him 3 times.

After the incident, Spiers was sent home by his manager, and the HR department's response was;
that they don't allow employees (more importantly delivery personnel) to carry guns "because we believe that that is the safest for everybody.”

Yes, it's safer to carry around a bag filled with cash at night unarmed.
