Good job by the citizen but they need to work on their aim just a little bit!

And WH has a Corp. no weapons policy. Perhaps they need to reconsider.
4 years ago in the same area, 2 guys went into WH with the intent to rob it. They noticed 2 customers open carrying and moved on.
The police's caught them robbing some other place and they admitted that they had I tended to knock over the WH first but we're afraid of the armed customers.

I loves me some Waffle House. (scattered, smothered, covered, diced, peppered, [sounds of drooling])

The service is slow enough as it is! Like hell you're gonna get a bunch of cops in here slowing the waitress down even worse...

I agree It was a good thing, But I hope someone higher up doesn't decide to try and prosecute this guy!
