Gun-Free Waffle House Draws Armed Criminals

posted on October 6, 2016

A Georgia restaurant seems to be learning what most of us have known all along—violent criminals not only don’t obey gun laws; they also don’t abide by “No Guns Allowed” signs.

Waffle House has a “no guns” policy, and it is costing one Coweta County, Ga., location dearly. According to local media reports, armed criminals have robbed the Newnan, Ga., Waffle House twice in the last three weeks.

To add insult to injury, two other nearby locations were also targeted by armed robbers just last weekend.

“One has to wonder if it was the big Waffle House sign that drew the crooks to the location or the little sign on the side of the building that told them it was ‘easy pickings’—the no firearms allowed sign,” Jerry Henry, executive director for GeorgiaCarry.org, told Guns.com.
