Going to car ,getting a gun and shooting into the air is NOT A GOOD THING. She could be charged with discharging a firearm in a reckless manner. If they had a gun she may of got herself shot. She may also lose her job. The way this went down, just give them the money and call the police. She need some training in self defense laws. Just saying my2C
I could care less what their policy is, Im not reading the gun policy of every store I frequent. A sign carries the force of law in NC. No sign, I'm good to go.
I hate the way the news just put her name right up front
I think its important to have a plan.. but this isn't the plan I was talking about.

I don't think I've ever stopped at a Waffle House. And I'm not going to begin now.

I find it curious, the number of people (including those interviewed by the "TV Reporter") who seem to believe that firing a warning shot into the air is some part of the legitimate usage of a self-defense firearm. While it's understandable that most of the general public might hold such beliefs (if they have watched enough TV Westerns) one has to hope that 99% of licensed CCW/CHL holders won't engage in such nonsense.
And also, if consecutive armed robberies continue to happen at one or more Waffle House locations, why aren't the TV news people at W/H H.Q., asking the W/H CEO what measures have been taken to ensure the safety and protection of W/H customers ?
Why is Waffle House Corporate (seemingly) sitting on their hands, while employees and customers continue to be accosted by criminally armed thugs, even while denying these same people the right to protect themselves ?
