Every WH I've been to has had a gunbuster sign, but no 06 or 07.

I found it strange that the man who fought the nut case and took his rifle away from him stated at first he thought the shots were plates falling that the cook had stacked, all the emplyees scattered and he went towards the bathroom and was shot at through the door, then later he talked about the nut walked in and he had a strange look on his face, not that he had no pants on and a rifle in his hands.
The two scenarios didn't add up.

I kept waiting for the MSM to start saying, "see, you don't need a gun to defend yourself against a man with a assault rifle."

I have had food at the Waffle House in Weatherford Texas, as well as the one in Hudson Oaks. I have never had anyone say that I cannot carry my weapon in there, nor have I seen one with a 30.06 or a 30.07 signage.

yeah but the guy who took the gun from him WAS hit. he grazed his arm... If someone had been armed, the naked lunatic would be on a slab in the morgue somewhere and those 4 innocent people might still be alive... but the MSM doesnt care. it doesnt fit their agenda.

No mention of Shaw getting shot, but he did burn his hand on the barrel.
I'm not sure that the dad broke any federal laws, but probably broke an Illinois law or two.

For those who haven't seen the WH no guns sign:

If it wasn't left off when the building was built, it is often around 12 feet off the ground, it is yellow and black and tends to blend in with the building and is usually 20-40 feet away from the only public door to the building.

Have fun finding it.
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

FOX is saying the man has been taken into custody, just now.

At the news conference they had a couple hours ago, the ATF guy mentioned that it is illegal to transfer a gun to someone that you know can't legally own one. That seems right and if so, the father may be in trouble. He obviously knew his son couldn't legally have guns.
