VIDEO: Store clerk FIRED after pulling gun in self-defense against hatchet-wielding robber
Striking video shows an attempted robbery of a convenience store in Oregon by a hatchet-wielding maniac being thwarted by a brave and responsible store clerk carrying a firearm (below), which is a reasonable thing to carry in his profession. Obviously, considering it just saved his life.

But the store disagrees, and in response to his brave act of defiance the clerk was fired, rather than rewarded, because he was carrying that firearm.

The president of Plaid Pantry in Oak Grove told Portland CBS affiliate KOIN that the stores have "a zero tolerance for weapons and the clerk is no longer employed there. He said employees are trained to de-escalate robbery situations to avoid injury."

The attempted robbery was back on April 28th, but police released the surveillance video on Friday. It's remarkable. So is the statement the police released with the video.

"We'd like to reunite you with the hatchet you left behind after the clerk responded with a handgun and a 911 call and you fled the scene," wrote Sgt. Marcus Mendoza in the press release.

Watch at link.

Now certain states are punishing those who defend themselves with a gun.
