Nude Suspect Shoots, Kills Four at Gun-Free Waffle House

Ed.  Another Gun-Free Zone does its job: 4 wounded, 4 DEAD. Way to go, Waffle House! Makin' it easy for psychos.

The following article appeared in Breitbart on April 22nd

A white male dressed in a green jacket and nothing else allegedly opened fire and killed three patrons at an Antioch, Tennessee, Waffle House on Sunday morning.

The shooting occurred around 3:25 a.m.

Waffle House has a gun-free policy  The chain prohibits firearms in possession of anyone but law enforcement. This means they ban the guns licensed concealed permit holders would otherwise carry for self-defense while in the restaurant.

News Channel 5 reports that the suspect, 29-year-old Travis Reinking (pictured), allegedly pulled up to the restaurant in a pick-up truck, sat in his vehicle a few minutes then emerged with a rifle and opened fire. After shooting at patrons outside the store he went inside and shot at others.

Reports indicate two to four individuals were wounded, another four were killed.

The shooting ended when a 29-year-old Waffle House patron allegedly wrestled the rifle away from Reinking.

Witnesses described Reinking as “nude,” and said he was “wearing only a green jacket and got away on foot after the patron took him down.”

Reinking was last seen near “Discovery at Mountain View Apartments on Mountain Springs Drive,” which is in the proximity of the Waffle House. His movements are being tracked by police dogs.

Waffle House’s gun-free policy is so stringent that they fired a waitress who used a gun to try to foil robbery at one of the restaurants in late December 2016.
Surviving family members say thanks a lot, Waffle House!

On October 12, 2015, a concealed-carry permit holder responded to a robbery in progress at a Charleston, South  Carolina, Waffle House by fatally wounding the suspect. Two days later Live5News published a statement in which Waffle House re-affirmed their gun-free policy:

We are very fortunate that no associate or customer were harmed in this tragic incident. It is Waffle House, Inc., policy not to allow firearms with the exception of law enforcement officers, including security guards. It is our understanding that the customer involved was an off duty security guard who was carrying his firearm and the incident occurred outside the restaurant.

We are well aware that different people and businesses have varying opinions regarding this issue, and we respect the right of all to have different opinions. However, we continue to believe this is the best policy for the safety of our customers and associates.

We are very thankful that no other customers or associates were hurt and will continue to work with local law enforcement as they investigate this matter.

Ed.  By the way...the Los Angeles Times carried this story and guess what the renowned newspaper forget to include in its article?

Yep. The Associated Press, from whom the Times received the story, forgot ALL ABOUT the fact that Waffle House restaurants do not permit their customers to defend themselves! Not one single little mention of the fact that the corporation did everything in its power to make it easy for psycho shooter, Travis Reinking to murder 4 people and wound 4 others. 

Aren't left-wing establishments like the Waffle House and left-wing "news" outlets like the Times and AP PROUD of the implementation of gun-free zones? Shouldn't that have been the FIRST thing mentioned in the Times article?

Perhaps just an oversight.
