    In response to what rich_s said. I will bet that there are more unarmed bystanders that would try to stop the robber and protect others than there are gun carrying citizens that would run out the back door.

    Thank God there are still some of us who still have backbones and are willing to do what is right.
    I live about a mile from this Waffle House and go there regularly. I wish I had been there that night. Maybe the second thug would have met the same fate!! Now he will tie up the court system for the next couple of years and then taxpayers will support the punk for the next 20 or so years unless of course YOU are the judge who turns this piece of trash back out on the streets to try it again. Maybe you will be in the next restaurant he tries to rob.
    Only a complete moron....IE: you....would ever wish to be in a situation like this. It's tough guy wannabe's like you that give the anti's more rhetoric to go on to try to take the rights away from responsible gun owners.

Why take the chance and wait until he actually fires his gun before stepping in? By then, it's too late.
    By brandishing a gun your actions could cause a firefight that might not have taken place if you didn't brandish. Why take the chance?

    That would be a smart move. Why risk getting killed in an armed robbery scenario if you could escape?

    Actually, I think the best course of action (without considering the myriad of circumstances that we don't know about from this brief description of the situation) would be to simply shoot any and all of the armed robbers.
    LMMFAO at "simply"

    Yeah- real simple

    Some people's personal morals won't let them do that, when there is a good chance they can change the outcome of the robbery for the better.

    Key words highlighted. I'm not willing to bet my life on "if they arrive".

    Good Lord son! PUNCTUATION and paragraph breaks. Help us out here!

    However I found this under the "Protection of Persons and Property Act":"A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in another place where he has a right to be, including, but not limited to, his place of business, has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he reasonably believes it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily injury to himself or another person or to prevent the commission of a violent crime as defined in Section 16-1-60".

    Wouldn't this law protect him from prosecution or civil action since he is in a place he has the right to be?

    You can read the whole thing here: 2005-2006 Bill 4301: Protection of Persons and Property Act - South Carolina Legislature Online
    That doesn't preclude a lawsuit unless the law specifically says it does.

    There's that improper use of that "brandishing" word again.

    The only one responsible would be the scumbag robbing the place, I can see why it'd be hard to comprehend that you should blaim the criminal rather than the victim with your liberal Massachusetts brainwashing.
