Illinois Seeks To Close Gun Law 'Loophole' After Waffle House Shooting

In the affidavit filed in court, officials said the serial number on the AR-15 - which remained at the Waffle House after the shooting - revealed it was a gun that had been linked to him.

The crime scene tape has been removed from outside the Antioch Waffle House on Murfreesboro Road and employees are getting the restaurant ready to reopen following the deadly mass shooting early Sunday morning.

"I never thought I'd be in a room with all the eyes on me, but you know, I'm very grateful to be here", Shaw told the lawmakers.

IL lawmakers on Tuesday were trying to close a legal loophole that allowed a confiscated AR-15 semiautomatic rifle to be given back to the man accused of a shooting at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee that killed four and wounded four. A patron charged the half-naked gunman during a pause in the attack, wrestling the rifle away from him and tossing it over a counter.

He was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with four counts of criminal homicide.

Sustrich, Reinking's former boss, described him as appearing paranoid and delusional at times.

The Senate also honored Shaw on Tuesday. Four people were killed and four others were wounded. "Help him if you can", Sustrsich said.

Court records show police seized multiple items from the apartment of a man suspected of killing four people at a Nashville Waffle House, including a rifle and ammunition. Attempts to reach Reinking have been unsuccessful, and people who answered the door and the phone at homes registered to the family have declined to comment.

Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall said Tuesday that Reinking, 29, has been "compliant" and "cooperative" since he was transferred to the jail late Monday after he was captured near the apartment where he lived.

He was initially held on $2 million bail, which has since been revoked by a judge.

The restaurant had been closed since Sunday, when police say a 29-year-old gunman, Travis Reinking, opened fire with an AR-15 rifle outside before storming the popular 24-hour diner in Antioch.

Reinking's bond was revoked on Tuesday by a Nashville judge. The request came several weeks after Reinking was arrested outside the White House for trying to cross a security barrier, declaring himself "a sovereign citizen" and ignoring orders to stop, according to a District of Columbia police report.

An attorney listed as Reinking's lawyer did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Gun rights advocates said the problem lay with Travis' father, who may have knowingly broken IL state law and federal law by giving guns to someone not allowed to have them.

Illinois, County deputies allowed Reinking's father to take possession of the weapons on the promise that he would not return them to his son.

According to federal officials, his father's conduct is "potentially a violation of federal law", the Post reported.
