AutoZone apparently has this same no tolerance policy. An employee and manager were shutting down their Virginia store when an armed robber burst in and ordered the two to open the safe and give him all the money. One of the employees Devin McClean sneaked out the back, went to his car and retrieved his legally owned, permitted and registered firearm. He re-entered his store, confronted the robber and shouted, “Freeze!” and “Stop! Drop the weapon!” Obviously shocked, the criminal raised his hands, gun still in hand and bolted out the door. Devin wanted to make sure they were safe, so he watched the man run down the street, after which he returned to make sure his manager was ok.
