    Last night my family and decided to eat at a new pizza shop near the house after my boys football practice.
    While waiting for our pizza a customer comes back in and wanted his money back for the food he ordered. After a few minutes of back and forth the customer tells the owner he's gonna pay one way or another, now the owner gets angry and comes around the counter and gets nearly nose to nose with the man and starts screaming for him to get the f out. Then puts his hand on his shoulder and starts pushing him out, the customer didn't like being pushed and shoves the owner into the counter.
    Customer starts to the door and the owner sprints to an adjacent office and quickly returns with a pistol (looked like a 9-40 xd all black) then chases the guy out into the foyer area and screaming forhim to get down and how he'll empty the "clip" into him and was pointing the gun at the customers head( who was face down ) with finger on the trigger, shacking like a leaf.
    I had my hk .40 on me but there was no immediate danger to my family, the police came and arrested the owner for brandishing, and the customer was released.
    Sorry so long winded just trying to put all info so you can share if you agree with PD actions, or think the shop owner rightfully was arrested.

    He called it a clip, that is an arrest worthy offense to some on the board...

    In all seriousness the guy chased after someone trying to leave and threatened to shoot, that deserves an arrest in my book. I am making this claim assuming i have been given all the facts accurately.

    That is accurate, I was within 6 feet of where the shop owner ran past our table( racking his gun while running to the door).

    From the facts given it didn't seem as there was a threat of life.

    Based solely on your description. definately arrest the owner. He was not in threat of his life but put another person's life in danger over a pizza...

    The owner is a nervous jerk. Now this will be fodder for the Obama administration, and the anti-gun hypocrites, to use against gun ownership. The owner should be tar-and-feathered.

    Thought abput pulling phone out and filming it but didn't wanna document a dumba$$ gun owner in action. The pizza was actually pretty good, meatlovers 22" sicilian crust. Though i thought a discount was in order. Would have cancled order but waiting on PD to take a statement, really don't want ro go to court over this bs and miss work.

    You are all correct! He should have been arrested! And it is idiots like him that create problems for the rest of us who are responsible gun owners. The guy obviously by walking out the door was not threatening the idiot store owner at that point! OH WOW what a DA! A hot head like him does not even need a weapon be it a ball bat or whatever!

    if anything at least record audio, may save you azz someday - a lesson I learned while dealing with a customers 2 faced lying POS PM. The 2nd time around when I informed him that ALL communications between him and I were being recorded he changed his tune :cool:

    I don't blame the owner for throwing the guy out and not capitulating but I do agree with his arrest.

    ...and I'm sorry you had this *** clown ruin your meal.

    Tack

    The owner turned the argument from verbal to physical. The whole idea of defense is to AVOID injury or death, this isn't how to to it.

    Agreed with all. And thanks for not recording it! That's all we'd need is another gun nut video in the hands of the anti-gunners.

    What I see is someone scared because they pushed back and he couldn't handle it. He knew the guy probably would kick his a$$, so he went to get his gun. What a f**king idiot and yes the owner should be arrested.
