After today’s shooting at Waffle House it is important to look back at a time in 2015 where a concealed carry holder stopped an armed robbery at a Waffle House.
AÂ concealed carry permit holder was praised for shooting an armed robbery suspectÂ around 5 a.m. on October 10, thereby stopping the robbery of a Waffle House in Charleston, South Carolina.
One of the uniformed officers who responded to the 911 calls said, â€œIt says something about firearms, for good people with firearms being in the right hands.â€
According toÂ The Post and Courier, police received â€œreports of an armed robbery and shots fired.â€Â They arrived to find â€œthe suspect had been shot.â€ Waffle House employees told police that an armed customer had stopped the robbery. One employee said, â€œHe saved us, thatâ€™s what he did.â€
“You don’t get to meet too many heroes in life, Mr. Shaw, but you are a hero. You’re my hero,” the CEO of Waffle House says an emotional thank-you to James Shaw Jr. He disarmed a gunman who killed 4 at a Nashville-area franchise. https://t.co/a5KYXNH4Hm https://t.co/7uD6ZspYaA
