    Good, or bad, Waffle House at 2:00 AM...

    Nothing good happens after midnight, and nothing good is served at Waffle House, especially if you happen to be robbing it when a permit holder is on hand. Armed customer shoots would-be robber.

    If I were in a Waffle House at 2:00, it would be safe to plan on shooting somebody.

    Imagine how much more frequent this sort of outcome would be with ~20-30%+ carriers in the adult population. If only we'd get there, a new spirit of camaraderie of spirit amongst the "good little boys" doing these crimes might sweep the nation. Go elsewhere, or die painfully and quickly, y'all. Might be a bit better message to send, as compared to "No Guns" and going around without any ability to survive such encounters.

    Kudos on the citizen for being there and doing some good.

    I actually like Waffle House; especially their muddy coffee. But @ 2am? I'd most certainly be armed...as usual I suppose. :D Most of the Waffle Houses I know of are in fairly seedy areas.

    If I'm in Waffle House at two in the morning, I'm definitely shooting someone; whomever made me go in there or myself... Someone's getting punished either way.

    I live in Atlanta and being in a Waffle House in Union City (south Atlanta suburb) at 2:00 AM is not a wise thing to do. Like you said nothing good happens after midnight.

    I wouldn't be surprised the customer may have even had his gun sitting on the table and ready to go.

    ...good plan...saves ammo...

    ...I guess that would be classified as a "carry-out order"

    I've been in Waffle Houses at/around 2AM quite a few times in my younger days. Fortunately, the worst I've ever seen was a group of drunk girls dancing on the tables to the jukebox and a brawl in the parking lot while munching on my sandwich and smothered, covered, and capped hashbrowns.

    These days, you'd probably see Christ himself in a Waffle House at 2AM before you'd see me.

    After hearing many rave reviews, went to one in Key West many years ago. One time was once too many.

    Notice how ABC added (woefully):
    "There were no other injuries"

    Their anti-gun slant always creeps in!

    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Ah yes....Waffle House at 2:00am....the consummate place to observe and study the socioeconomic condition of America.

    on the weekends, I am a night owl. I go to Waffle House late at night all the time.....armed with at least three guns, brass knuckles, pepper spray, handcuffs, and Kevlar body armor.
    No problems.
