Is a black guy with a waffle.

Hope they catch this guy quick if they haven't already.

Man, I always wonder how I would react in a similar situation. Would I react in a heroic way, like this guy, trying to save lives, or would I have just stayed in the bathroom, keeping myself safe.

I will hopefully never have to find out what type of man I truly am, but I hope that I am the former, and not the latter.

I'm pretty cool in an emergency, and in general so I'd like to think I'd be the former but you never really know until it happens I guess.

The hero of the hour points out that there was nowhere to hide, no quick way out, and when the shooter stopped to reload (where was he keeping his spare magazine, since he was naked?), he saw a chance to intervene and took it.

Quick thinking and brave, yes. Unwilling to tackle the naked guy, also yes. Smiley: lol

"Sure, I'll grab a scorching hot gun barrel and yank it away from him, but... dude's naked. Nuh-uh."

The suspected gunman on the run after riddling a Tennessee Waffle House with bullets dubbed himself a "sovereign citizen," before being arrested in July 2017 outside the White House.

The bureau says usually, these individuals believe the law doesn't apply to them and don't have to pay taxes or follow other norms. They believe governments are illegal and gravitate to conspiracy theories.
Sounds kind of familiar.

In June 2017, Reinking threatened someone with an AR-15 then drove to a public pool and exposed himself to others, said the USA TODAY Network's Tennessean, citing police records. He has also threatened to kill himself and said he thought singer Taylor Swift was stalking him, according to the Associated Press.
It's a good thing we're doing everything in our power to keep guys like this armed.

I do not understand that sequence of events at all.

He went to the White House, armed, and got into some unauthorized area - and lived, and wasn't charged.

His guns were returned to his father.

His father returned the guns to this upstanding sovereign citizen. Was his father not warned that this is a felony? Did his son seem like the kind of guy who should be in control of firearms? Did he agree that his son needed to be armed to protect himself against Taylor Swift?

So many questions.

You're braver than me for merely asking the question. There's some things in life that are better left as a mystery.

I think we should all be armed to defend ourselves against Taylor Swift.
