Everybody knows that Waffle House customers have no fear. After all, they risk congenital heart disease every time they walk through that door. But one patron recently took his fearlessness to new heights when he shot a would-be armed robber at a Charleston Waffle House early Saturday morning.


The robber, 19-year-old Joshua Jermaine Davis, came in to the Waffle House around 5am on Saturday with a gun. When police arrived soon after, Davis had been shot by a man who was at the Waffle House and whose name has not been released.


Davis was taken to the hospital, but later died from his wounds. It’s being reported that the man who shot him did have a concealed carry permit for his weapon. However, it does raise the question of what he was doing at a Waffle House at 5am and why he was armed (particularly when Waffle House apparently does not like serving any customers with guns). Either way, the man will not face charges for shooting Davis. And, of course, gun advocates haven’t wasted any time hailing the legal gun owner for his action.
