Not a “sportsman” not someone “protecting” his family. Just a garden variety killer doing what killers do with the best killing tool at his disposal.

Metro Nashville Police Department
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A man wearing nothing but a coat stormed a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee before dawn Sunday and shot four people to death, according to police, who credited a customer with saving lives by wresting a weapon away from the gunman.The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said via its Twitter account that authorities are searching for 29-year-old Travis Reinking of Morton, Illinois (pictured above). Police said he was named as a person of interest because the pickup truck that the gunman used to drive to the restaurant was registered to Reinking. 

Police spokesman Don Aaron said three people died at the scene and one person died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Two other people were being treated there for gunshot wounds. Medical Center spokeswoman Jennifer Wetzel said one was in critical condition and the other was in critical but stable condition.

Aaron said the gunman arrived at the restaurant, sat in the parking lot for four minutes and shot two people with an assault rifle. The gunman then went inside and continued firing.

A 29-year-old male patron inside the restaurant grabbed the rifle from the suspect and tossed it over a counter, Aaron said.

“No doubt he saved many lives by wrestling the gun away and tossing it over the counter and prompting the man to leave,” Aaron said. He called the patron a “hero.”

    After listening to the FBI talk about revoking the shooters foid card. I googled it. Not a bad thing in my opinion. Calling Delaware law makers. Given Illinois stance on gun ownership and rights, it should be easy to track the gun back to the “a hole” that gave or got that that whack job a womd.

    How about that. It turns out you can stop a bad guy with a gun by taking the gun away.
