Report: Waffle House Shooter Had History of Arrests and Mental Illness
Yesterday, a homicidal asshat took his shirt off and got his mass murder on in a Waffle House. You've no doubt heard the left blaming "scary black rifles of color" for the massacre and demanding they be taken away. What you probably haven't heard is the guy has an "impressive" rap sheet. Along with a history of being a certifiable nut-bar. Not to mention his boomsticks had been taken from him. For reals:
According to police, Reinking was arrested by the Secret Service for trespassing near the White House in July 2017.
Reinking said he wanted to meet with US President Donald Trump and told a Secret Service officer at the northeast entrance that he was a "sovereign citizen" who had a "right to inspect the grounds."
At the FBI's request, Reinking's Illinois firearms authorization was revoked, and four weapons -- including the AR-15 style rifle used in the Sunday's shooting -- were seized.
Authorities in Tazewell County, Illinois, later returned the seized weapons to Reinking's father, who gave them back to his son, police said.
Proving once again the government can't even jack the gats without bungling the whole thing up. Yet, the left expects us to trust Uncle Sam's "flawless expertise" in matters of regulating our lives and securing our safety. As it is, they're not exactly doing a bang-up job.
Crazy had guns. FBI took Crazy's guns. FBI gave guns back to Crazy's father who presumably helped raise Crazy. Crazy's father gives guns back to Crazy. Leftists call for repeal of the Second Amendment.
Wait though, because it's about to get a whole lot loonier.
In May 2016, Reinking experienced a delusional episode telling first responders that he believed pop star Taylor Swift was stalking him, according to a police report.
Yeah, I think we're starting to get the picture of this guy's gray matter.
This is a person who's clearly got some head issues. Yet, the authorities chose to let him roam the streets. Even after taking his tomfoolery to the White House, of all places. No men in white coats. No trip to a padded room. The guy's dad even thought it a good idea to let his whacked-out son have his blasters back. There's plenty of blame to go around. Still, leftists want to single out the rifle itself for the massacre.
We already have laws on the books to keep people like this basket case from packing heat. Yet, thanks to incompetence all-around, four Waffle House patrons are in the morgue and this crazy person is still at large. Sad.
