26. so this guy used an otherwise "lawful gun" to violate the terms of his employment...

End of story. It appears that he was aware of the policy, and made a conscious choice to violate it, presumably because he thought his gung-ho approach was somehow "better" than the terms under which he was employed.

In a broader sense though, I disagree with you that the "lawful guns are not the problem." The issue is that lawful guns, like dormant viruses, are always on the verge of becoming a problem. Every UNLAWFUL gun that is a problem was once a lawful gun, and they can go from lawful to unlawful in the blink of an eye, and often do. Especially when we warp morality all out of proportion to try and keep violent behavior "lawful," as in SYG laws that legitimize lethal force to solve minor interpersonal problems.

But that's not really the point of this thread, so I won't go there. Autozone cowboy violated the terms of his employment, which he understood, so there really isn't much more to add. I'm sure you agree, being a rule abiding lawful gun owner and all.
