    Armed man in bathrobe steals pizza in Ashburn

    A pizza delivery man was robbed of his fare at gunpoint in Ashburn just after midnight Tuesday morning, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

    The delivery man was approached by an unknown black man described as nearly 6-feet tall and wearing a bathrobe in the 43800 block of Chloe Terrace, according to the sheriff's office. The suspect began a conversation with the delivery man before brandishing a firearm and demanding money, the sheriff's report states.

    After being told the delivery man was not carrying cash, the bathrobed suspect snagged the pizza and left the area.

    Why do you fools think having a gun makes you bulletproof? You can still get shot in the process of killing a criminal.

    Guns for daily protection from pizza robbery is ridiculous as using explosives to control pests in your home.


    Am I the only one who sees a tinge of humor here?

    While it’s true a crime was committed, and it’s true the situation could have gotten dangerous, somehow the visual image I’ve conjured up in my mind of a Glock wielding, pizza carrying 6-foot tall guy running around Sterling with a bathrobe (it had to be red-plaid) flapping in the breeze around his knees tickles my funny bone.

    Tell me - did he have slippers on?

    Armed man in bathrobe steals pizza in Ashburn

    Definitley a contender for LTM “Headline Of The Year.” While the bathrobe isn’t an essential part of the story and probably doesn’t fit the technical requirements for headline inclusion, it sure makes the headline more interesting and does its job—getting you to read the story.


    Ed there is a difference between murder and killing. Murder has not justification, killing is justified. Logically if you kill and attacker as you are being attacked you are justified. Why should I die because of someone’s poor life choices.


    I wouldn’t worry too much about what this so called Ed has to say, he’s the little person who complains at every turn about everything because of his/her silly lib views and then the moment dude with robe pulls a gun to rob him/her, they come a crying to get protection from those with a gun or our wonderful Sherrif’s department. This guy or gal is one of those people who have never been threatened because he or she still lives in their moms basement and has nothing to offer society except complain, troll, and try to push forth the nonsense of the left and play video games. The stupidity of one to think that gun control would somehow lessen the likelihood of criminals getting their hand on a gun is some of the dumbest and idiotic views in this great country. Oh, and if that robe bearing good for nothing had pulled a gun on someone to rob them and they shot and killed him it would not be murder, it would be a justified kill and good riddance of a piece of trash who should be removed from the gene pool anyway. Better yet, I hope that fate brings him your way next time Ed. You can pull out your Obama sticker and “Hope” he goes away.


    Yep. Killing someone to save a pizza might be legal, but it is still murder.


    Ed your statement is incorrect, shooting a person robbing you is legal so long as they are not fleeing in VA.


    Sorry Ed, but emptying a mag on someone robbing you with a gun is legal.


    Shooting people to prevent theft is murder.  Gun rights activists are quick to advocate shooting people over the silliest things…like pizza. Really, you’d empty the mag on a thief and burn up more in ammo costs than the value of the pizza?  What part of the alleged perp’s description made you assume he was a career criminal?  Gun ownership? Height? Bathrobe? Cashburn? ...Or black?


    Ed what do you want exactly? No where in the Western world are guns illegal. There will always be nuts doing nutty things.


    @ EdMyers No, robbing pizza delivery guys for food, fun or any other reason has nothing to do with Second Amendment rights.  It has everything to do with criminal behavior.  I would be willing to bet that the robber has a rap sheet a long as my arm yet he’s still roaming the streets.

    Your messiah, Obama , is known as the Food Stamp President so I’ve think your team has the “I’ve got to steal for food”  angle covered.


    “Isn’t using guns to hunt for food one of the bedrock principles of 2A rights?”

    Actually, no. The Second Amendment (yes the second, right after the first, not the fourth or the fifth) is the doomsday provision of the Constitution. It was not created for the purpose of preserving hunting rights.

    The Battle of Athens, McMinn County, TN, 1946 is precisely the scenario for which the Second Amendment was written. It was a battle between returning WWII veterans and a corrupt political machine to restore the rule of law.  It should be part of every child’s American history lesson.

    “My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed—where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.”  Judge Alex Kozinski, Silveira v. Lockyer


    @LoCo.  What makes you so sure that criminals and gun rights activist are mutually exclusive? That legal fence is low and easy to stumble over.

    Isn’t using guns to hunt for food one of the bedrock principles of 2A rights? :)


    @Jeanne you continually confuse me with somebody else. Do you have an opinion about the article?


    Ed Meyers continually complains about people with guns (but not knives), but at the same time he opposes law enforcement at every opportunity.  He opposed the building of the LCSO substation on E. Frederick in Sterling on the grounds that the school children at Rolling Ridge Elementary School would see the LCSO bringing in criminals. Even after it was explained to him that the criminals would not be seen he objected. (Yes, Ed, I was at that meeting and heard your comments.)


    Hey EdMyers

    A person who uses a gun to rob a hardworking pizza delivery guy is NOT a “gun rights activist.”  He is a CRIMINAL.
    However, if the pizza deleivery guy had been armed, he could have shot the robber thus eliminating the threat permanently.  By your twisted liberal logic, your would prefer that the robbery victim be labeled the criminal.


    Another loyal gun rights activist saves himself from starvation by using gun to purloin pizza. Add 1 to the number of times guns were used to save a life. See sidebar for story of someone who failed to get the free food he wanted because he didn’t actually have his gun with him. Compare the outcomes in these two stories to make a point about gun regulations.
