Robbery of Pizza Guys

I continue to fail to understand why pizza delivery guys still get robbed, since it seems to be that a significant chunk of foiled robberies that end with a dead armed robber involve pizza delivery guys. It seems to happen about once a year in Philly. I’d have to imagine if you calculated the odds, you’re probably less likely to die robbing a bank.

    That’s a job I’d never do, it’s amongst the most dangerous there is. Not worth it for the money they make. It’s appalling when they defend themselves and get fired as a result too.

    three words. Criminals are stupid.

  3. The Armed Citizen even has a category for pizza delivery, it is so common.

    Working as a pizza delivery driver is what motivated me to get my PA LTCF over 15 years ago. I traded that in for an Idaho CWP around 13 years ago, and I have no intent to ever be without a permit until such time as the entire nation elects to fully respect the constitutionally recognized right to bear arms without requiring a permission slip.

    I’m old and delivered pizzas off and on back in the 66-69 period as a high school kid in a college town. Left the oven in the unlocked car, carried the whole evening’s receipts in my pocket and never had any pizzas stolen or was robbed, except by a guy who played the change game on me and I ended up short by $10.00.

    But today I’d be carrying a gun, lowering the shields around the Batmobile and turning on the electric shock circuitry.

  6. Remember: soft body armor was delivered by a pizza delivery guy after an unfortunate incident in 1969 Detroit. The driver had a .22 Magnum revolver that he was VERY practiced with–and that made all the difference.

    Crooks believe the media? I mean, guns are never useful for self-defense, so the pizza guy won’t be able to defend himself with on. Or something…

    Every pizza delivery driver I’ve ever known personally has been robbed at gun point at least once. What a terrible job. They should ride in pairs, with the one riding shotgun manning the 50 cal.

    I’ve been robbed eight times at somebody’s door,
    I’m mad and I ain’t gonna take no more,
    So the next time somebody goes for the cash,
    I’ve got a turret-mounted laser wired up to the dash.

    Domino Death, we’re gonna have some fun,
    Domino Death, you better duck and run,
    Domino Death, you better do your best,
    Or I’ll deliver you to Hell in thirty minutes or less.

    That Tom Smith is one of the more hard-core leftist useful idiots I know. Doesn’t stop me from enjoying his work, though.
