After Waffle House Shooting: Few Rules for Weapons Surrender

On Tuesday, Metro Nashville police said five additional warrants were issued against Reinking, for one count of unlawful gun possession in the commission of a violent felony and four counts of attempted murder. Reinking was not armed at the time, but at the FBI's request, state police in IL revoked his state firearms card and seized four guns - including the AR-15 used in the Nashville shootings - from him.

"We think it is risky for the law to allow a third party, including a family member, to hold onto firearms when a person loses his or her gun eligibility", said Hannah Shearer, staff attorney at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Reinking is scheduled to make a court appearance Wednesday for a hearing.

Authorities previously charged the suspect on Monday with four counts of criminal homicide, according to court records. He apologised to the people whose loved ones died in the attack.

It appears that Waffle House shooting suspect Travis Reinking will not have a chance to post bail.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said Reinking requested a lawyer and was taken to a hospital before being booked into custody.

One of the employees at the crane company, Ken Sustrich, told police that he reached out to Reinking's father with concerns about his son's mental health. But even before Reinking was accused of these horrific murders, his grandmother was anxious.

Reinking was not armed at the time, but at the FBI's request, IL police revoked his state firearms card.

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Reinking is suspected of opening fire inside of a Waffle House at Murfreesboro Pike.

She added: "We are waiting for a response from the English justice system because even the British government cannot intervene". The toddler's life support was withdrawn Monday after a series of court rulings blocked further medical treatment.

Security Force Members Killed in Attacks in Badghis
Shortly after the Taliban said it was not behind the attack, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility. Afghan officials say the toll from a suicide bombing in Kabul claimed by ISIS has risen to 57 dead and 119 wounded.

The AR-15 used in the shootings was among those seized. The vehicle was quickly recovered, but authorities did not immediately link the theft to Reinking.

Reinking told police - once in Tazewell County, Illinois, in 2016, and again in Colorado a year ago - that Swift was stalking him. "I didn't really fight that man to save everyone else", he said.

What seemed to drive Reinking more than anything was an obsession with Swift, the report said.

A 29-year-old man who disarmed a gunman during a deadly shooting inside a Nashville restaurant yesterday declined accolades from police and others that he was a hero, saying he acted out of a desire "to live". He didn't like the government or the National Rifle Association, and he talked about being a "sovereign citizen".

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special Agent Marcus Watson said the father's action was "potentially a violation of federal law".

"We were able to effectively neutralize what we felt was the threat at the time by ensuring that he did not have the ability to purchase or own weapons and that those weapons were taken", Espenshade said.

Reinking's behavior resulted in the revocation of his IL firearms license, and his weapons were turned over to his father. Police said Reinking's father told authorities that he eventually gave the guns back to his son. Following his arrest in DC last July, Illinois authorities revoked Reinking's firearms identification card and confiscated his four weapons, turning them over to his father.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Central District of IL, which includes Tazewell County, declined to comment on the situation Tuesday.

It is not clear why Reinking moved recently from Morton, Illinois, and if it had anything to do with being near Swift, who has a home in Nashville. But Reinking's father, who has an IL firearm owner's card, was allowed to take them and agreed to "keep the weapons secure and out of the possession of Travis".
