Here’s yet another example of a bad-ass gun owner using their gun to shut down crime. Apparently three thug robbers gave a Waffle House waitress a note saying that they would shoot everyone if they didn’t hand over all their money.
So a different waitress went to her car to get a gun!
The waitress shot in the air as the robbers ran away to their cars.
From WSB-TV in Atlanta:
“She made it known she was ready to defend herself,” customer Ben McCoy said.
McCoy said he hopes the robbers learn not to come back.
“If a citizen can help prevent something from escalating by exercising their constitutional rights, I’m all for it,” he said.
Neighbors said the incident has raised concerns about crime.
Hopefully the police will capture these scumbags so that they can’t threaten the restaurant again. Or they try it, and get aired out like swiss cheese for their efforts.
Three men ate a meal and then, instead of paying, gave the cashier a note warning everyone in the building would be shot if money in the cash register wasn’t handed over to the trio.
After they departed on foot, Stanley retrieved a gun from her own car in the parking lot and fired over the heads of the robbers.
“I wasn’t sure if they were coming back or not,” she said Friday afternoon following her dismissal. “I was in fear for my life, my co-workers’ lives, and I did what I thought was right.”
This second account sounds like she shot at them after the robbery after they ran off. Either way is good for me.
Here’s a news report about the story:
Unfortunately, the waitress has been fired. If someone starts up a GoFundMe, let me know, so we can support the gun-totin’ hero!!
