Tennessee Shooting Suspect Had His Guns Confiscated After Secret Service Arrest At White House

On Sunday, a 29-year-old man shot several people at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee, which prompted far-left activists to immediately champion nationwide gun confiscation. As is the case in many shootings, it was only a matter of hours before it was revealed that the suspect was prohibited from possessing firearms as his firearms were previously confiscated.

USA Today reports:

In July 2017, the U.S. Secret Service arrested [the shooter] for being in a “restricted area” near the White House, according to the Secret Service. After the arrest, his Illinois firearms authorization was revoked and local Illinois police seized four weapons.

“Among the weapons seized by those authorities was the AR-15 rifle used at the Waffle House today,” said Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron.

Officials believe that the suspected shooter’s dad received the firearms back from local law enforcement after they were confiscated and then gave them back to his son. CNN added that the FBI also interviewed the suspect following his arrest by the Secret Service.
