Pizza Shop Owner Wants To Arm Employees
PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) Double-M Pizza in Charleroi was robbed late Saturday night and owner, Mark Miller, has a plan to fight back. He says his employees will begin carrying weapons. He has even placed a sign in front of his shop saying, “We Now Carry.”
The suspect entered Miller’s restaurant around 10:45 Saturday night on Pennsylvania Avenue and was armed with a shotgun. He demanded money from Miller, but the owner said the suspect didn’t have the shotgun trained and he was able to grab his cash tray and run away from the suspect.
Miller then got into a car with one of his delivery drivers and called police as the suspect fled the store and drove off.
Now he’s urging his employees to arm themselves while working.
“I am encouraging my drivers to carry, get a permit, get trained, and know to use a weapon to prevent something like this from going on,” he said.
Miller said a “well-armed public is the greatest deterrent of crime in the world.”
KDKA Radio’s Robert Mangino covers all aspects of such a proposition and takes calls and suggestions along the way.
