Pizza Delivery Man Shoots Armed Men

dominoes pizza gun policy shooting

Recently in Florida a Domino's Pizza Delivery man was approached by two armed men attempting to rob him. He responded by drawing his own concealed weapon and firing at the suspects injuring at least one of them. According to the local CBS station affiliate:

Police say a Domino’s delivery driver was delivering  pizzas near Timothys Landing off 103rd street when  he was approached by two armed man, demanding money.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the deliveryman grabbed his own gun and shot one of the suspects.


This is the second time this year that we have seen Domino's delivery people forced to defend themselves from armed attackers. The previous incident from earlier this year created national attention in the gun community because Domino's spoke out about the policy that prohibits their drivers from being armed or carrying guns. Sounds to me like pizza guys are targets. If you deliver pizza you should be armed and frankly there is enough competition that I can easily order my pizza from a competitor who doesn't have an active policy against their drivers defending themselves.

    On Jan. 29th. 1993 my cousin Tony Sak was MURDERED delivering pizza’s for Domino’s while attending Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. He was about to graduate and was only 22 years old.

    UNTIL Domino’s changes their policy and permits the drivers who are legally qualified to carry a weapon I will NEVER order from them.

      I totally agree and will not order from them again as long as they do not allow their delivery people with CHL’s to carry. On top of it their pie is too salty here in Austin!

        I would also like to ad that I refuse to do business with any store that does not allow me to defend myself. Of course liquor store and bars are not included but they don’t matter to me as I don’t frequent either!

          Steven, I too agree that I will NOT do business with any business that INTERFERES with my 2nd. Amendment RIGHT to defend my family or myself.

      Hi Rick, I’m sure you don’t check this, but I’m Sarah’s daughter. I have never met Tony because I was born in 200.
