File this under nothing good happens after midnight!

In Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, a pizza delivery guy was stabbed by a robber while delivering a late-night pie.

The pizza guy, smartly, carried a handgun for self-defense and was able to shoot the attacker before he could stab him to death.

From the Post-Gazette:

A pizza deliveryman fatally shot a would-be robber after a struggle overnight in Beaver Falls, police said.

Beaver Falls Police Chief John A. DeLuca said the encounter occurred around 12:20 a.m. Friday in the 1500 block of 2nd Avenue. Police were dispatched to the scene for a report of an attempted robbery of a pizza delivery driver.

When they arrived, the driver told police he had delivered a pizza and was returning to his vehicle when a man approached him and attempted to rob him.

“At that time, a struggle ensued and the driver was stabbed,” Chief DeLuca said.

The driver told police he managed to get to his vehicle, where he retrieved his handgun and fired a single round at the attacker.

The wounded attacker fled and was found by police about a block away on a porch, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The pizza delivery driver was taken by ambulance to a Pittsburgh hospital. His condition has not been released.

No identifications are being released by authorities at this time.

Amanda Blackwell, who lives near the robbery scene, said she was watching television at home when she heard a gunshot.

When she went outside, she said she saw the injured pizza deliveryman.

“I asked him if he was OK and he said he didn’t know,” she said.

  1. Very few people are opposed to reasonable people having reasonable guns. In fact, most people are applauding that this guy was able to use his reasonable gun to protect himself. The problem with nearly all of these “defend the Second Amendment” screeds is they never acknowledge that reality; instead creating a straw man making the assumption that the Second Amendment is in real danger. It isn’t.

    1. Well, I suppose the definition “reasonable” is at stake and must be expanded on. The Founders of our Constitution wanted the people (us) to be able to be free from unreasonable government intrusions and it’s practices. That’s what was on their mind when the wrote the Second Amendment. So, if our government get unreasonable and takes power from the people, the people MUST rightly rise up, throw off those “chains” and again be free. Now, our government is the biggest exporter of arms the world has ever seen. So, why NOT invokie the Second Amendment so that the people can respond in kind to government intrusions. The Second Amendment IS in danger and anyone with half of a mind can see that. It say that right, given by God, “…shall not be infringed.” So if unreasonable people have guns (like the FBI, CIA or others in the Justice system) why can’t we the people? The common folks of the day had weapons just as deadly and powerful as the army. Do we today? Not a chance! That unreasonableness needs to be rectified. Either by taking away power from the Justice Dept., or ramping up firepower by “we the People”. You choose. I’ll be happy either way.
