Defend the defenseless and . . .?

Over at Call Me Ahab, Caleb points to an incident that just occurred here in Indy: a robber threatens shoppers with a firearm* and an employee of the store shoots and kills the robber. I imagine that the Marion Co. Prosecutor will find the shooting justified but I wonder if the store had a 'no firearms' policy and the brave employee will be fired? I always thought it completely idiotic that places of business find it far better to allow their employees and customers to be massacred rather than allow employees to defend themselves and those around them.

*I see the Official Colt's Propaganda Rag reports that the robber had a 'gun.' Thanks for the details. Very professional.
