There were 5 men waiting to rob pizza deliveryman, Robby Wells, when he showed up in a church parking lot to make his delivery, but Wells was carrying a gun and that MADE the difference in this story.
The news report doesn’t like to focus on the aspect of Wells being armed during the attempted robbery. In fact, they focused more on the fact that crimes like this have been going on for a while. But think about it. The only reason Wells was not robbed or physically harmed is that he was packing heat.
He did not have to fire a warning shot (which is a bad idea anyway). He did not have to even fire his gun or aim it at anyone in this instance. Merely HAVING a gun saved him from being robbed and possibly worse. Another score for the CCW’s out there! Carry on!
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Story from wsoctv.com— A pizza delivery driver said it was one against five when a group of teens tried to rob him in Charlotte.
“I knew that in all my years I’ve been doing my delivery service that something wasn’t right,” said driver Robby Wells.
Wells said he had a bad feeling from the start, when a pizza order was called into Hungry Howie’s last week.

“The call came in for a $74 order, first red flag. Second red flag: it was cash,” Wells said.
Wells was also suspicious because he said there was a similar call three weeks ago that ended with another driver being robbed.
This time, Wells decided to grab his gun and went to the address, which was a church parking lot on Delta Lake Drive in the university area.
“I saw the four young men sitting right there on the bench and the fifth one was right behind the pillar trying to hide,” Wells said.
Wells said the men surrounded him and that’s when he showed them the gun tucked in his pants.
“I said, ‘Now that we’re at this point, do you have the money for this food,’ I said, ‘or not?’ And one guy said ‘No, we don’t have this money for the food,'” Wells said.
Wells said he got back in his car and left. He said the incident won’t stop him from future deliveries because “I knew that I was protected. I was completely protected.”
Eyewitness News has been reporting on problems with delivery drivers being robbed. Police said drivers should not take the law into their own hands but avoid anything dangerous.
Wells said he has a concealed carry permit.
I personally know some people who have been beat up very badly in the pizza delivery business while making deliveries. But none of them were carrying guns like this man in Charlotte, NC. Don’t let the anti-gun lawmakers convince you that gun control saves lives when it really just endangers them.
