Four Dead In Mass Shooting At Waffle House In Nashville After Father Gives Back Weapons To Unstable Son

April 22, 2018

Police say this is the rifle used in the deadly shooting at a Waffle House on Sunday.  All we can say is here we go again, America.  Who would have thought someone would use an  AR-15 for killing people!

The 29-year-old suspect in a shooting early Sunday at a restaurant in my beloved Nashville that left four dead was arrested last year by the U.S. Secret Service for being in a restricted area near the White House.

Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron said Travis Reinking’s firearms authorization was then revoked at the request of the FBI, and four weapons were seized, including the AK-15 that he allegedly used in the shooting at the Waffle House restaurant early Sunday.

Aaron said the four guns were returned to the suspect’s father, who acknowledged giving them back to his son.  The father clearly is mentally deficient in every sense of the word.

This is EXACTLY one of the changes to laws that I have continually argued for in this nation.  The person, in this case the father, who allows for guns to be be made available to a person who is known to be unstable and in violation of the law in previous case(s), needs to be charged. 

Police spokesman Aaron said three people died at the restaurant and one person died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Travis Reinking is pictured below.
