Second Amendment Stops Taco Bell Robbery

A Taco Bell robbery ended with one dead robber and another fleeing from armed employees.

The company is offering “counseling” to employees after the attempted Taco Bell robbery, in case they were traumatized by the event. What is not clear to me, at the time I am posting this, is how the company will handle the three employees who killed one robber and sent the other one fleeing the scene. I’m pretty sure that it is not Taco Bell policy for employees to be armed.

But I’m glad they were.
