A Jet’s Pizza delivery driver in Redford, MI found himself protecting his life around 11 PM on Saturday night when two attackers attempted to rob him at gunpoint. Luckily, the delivery driver had a gun of his own.
According to the police reports, the victim was making a delivery to a residence in Grayfield when he encountered to individuals posing as customers. One grabbed him while the other pointed a gun at him, demanding money. The delivery driver, who was also armed (LEGALLY), then fired a couple of shots towards the attacker. The two robbers then fled the scene to a waiting vehicle while the delivery driver ran to his own vehicle and dialed 911. A couple of hours later, Clarence Sanders, 27, arrived at the hospital with multiple gun shot wounds. On Monday, Sanders was arrainged at the hospital on a charge of armed robbery and the driver of the get-away car was arrested. A warrant for arrest is currently under process for the second attacker.
Now that you have the story, I want to take a second and further encourage citizens to own and carry. This situation could have ended horribly for the delivery boy had he NOT BEEN ARMED. He LAWFULLY possessed a firearm which in turn, saved his life and but an armed robber in prison. Did he KILL the attacker? No, but he sure didn’t take the fall for it himself.
Truth is, no one knows when things like this are going to happen. Regardless of whether you know it or not, THESE THINGS DO HAPPEN and they could very well happen to you. Disarming citizens who lawfully possess a firearm and don’t choose to abuse it are not the problem when it comes to gun violence, criminals are. If you really want to prevent gun violence, educate yourselves and your families. The only way to prevent gun violence is to take a stand against violent criminals and learn how to properly defend yourself in a threatening situation. Don’t let your families walk into a situation like this and become a victim of a violent/deadly crime.
As for all the criminals and thugs out there, be careful. Your victims are packing.
