YORK COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Some pro-gun advocates say they plan on protesting AutoZone stores.

The Virginia Citizens Defense League plans to protest AutoZone stores after a former employee in York County says he was fired for bringing a gun to work to protect himself.

According to WTKR, the store clerk was pointing a gun at a suspected thief, who has hit more than 30 businesses in the Hampton Roads area.

The pro-gun group plans on protesting at two local AutoZone stores on Saturday.


  • 1506 Boulevard in Colonial Heights from 10 a.m. to noon
