A tragic shooting took place Sunday morning at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee, when a 29-year-old Illinois man opened fire at the restaurant and killed at least four people, wounding at least seven others, according to USA Today.
From Western Journalism:
The suspect — identified as Travis Reinking — was known to authorities and had run afoul of gun laws as recently as last year, when he was arrested by the Secret Service for being armed in a “restricted area” in the vicinity of the White House.
That run-in with the law resulted in his Illinois firearms owner card being revoked while local police confiscated four weapons from his possession.
“Among the weapons seized by those authorities was the AR-15 rifle used at the Waffle House today,” said Don Aaron, spokesman for the Nashville police spokesman, during a Sunday afternoon press conference.
Nashville police chief Steve Anderson said there was still no known motive for the deadly shooting, but added, “We suspect some mental issues.”
This is unbelievable. No doubt it will raise a million points with liberals, and every single one of them will be “there’s nothing that could be done except to BAN these rifles.” Meanwhile, the police have literally admitted that this was a case of mental health. What do you think about this shooting, and its perpetrator? Let us know in the comments.
