Waiting for the anti-gun morons to show up and say how the thief wouldn't have a cattle prod if it weren't for the clerk having a gun.

Never bring a cattle prod (knife, club, etc.) to a gun fight.

I was going to say, better ban all cattle, but then I realised that Vegans would actually agree with that :| Can't please everyone in this world.

I agree with that part.

The employee who restrained him before he "eventually" escaped (implying he was held for a while) probably had more to do with the guys arrest than the gun though.

It's called the Tueller Drill (after the Utah cop who developed it) and is used to establish the radius within which a person with a knife has the tactical advantage. Highly variable based on an individuals reaction time, holster & weapon type etc. but generally between 15 and 25 feet. The idea is to learn that distance [i]for you[/i] and react before that perimeter is breached. Mine is 16 feet.

And if the thief had a gun and shot the clerk several times instead of just shocking him? would this be the same story?
You need to think before you try to make a point.

Cattle prods are weak. They shock but they don't really hurt or wound, that's why they are used with cattle. It's a high voltage but low current charge.
