A concerned customer and licensed handgun holder told police his wife was on the way to join him at the restaurant and fearing for her safety and others, he confronted the gunman in the parking lot and shot him.
The suspect has yet to be identified and remains in critical condition at this time. The customer who fired the shots was not arrested, according to police.
A similar story unfolded outside a Waffle House in Charleston, South Carolina last year when an off-duty security guard noticed a man robbing the restaurant and ordered him to stop, only to be met with a gun being pulled-causing the guard to fatally shoot the robber.
Waffle House had this to say about the incident:
“For many years, we have had a ‘No Firearms’ policy in place in our restaurants. We continue to believe this is the best policy for the safety of our customers and associates.”
Ironically, Waffle House still has a ‘gun-free zone’ policy.
Moms Demand Action, an organization that tries to rob citizens from the protections of the 2nd Amendment has urged many businesses, namely restaurants, to institute policies urging their customers to refrain from bringing firearms into the establishment.
According to the group’s corporate responsibility page, many restaurants have given in to their radical demands and told customers to leave their guns at home.
