Family of Dead Armed Robber Speaks Out Against CCP Holder Who Shot Him & Calls For Stricter Gun Laws
Guns Saves Lives ^ | 03 May 14 | Dan Cannon

Posted on 05/07/2014 3:16:38 PM PDT by Drew68

The family of an armed robber is speaking out after surveillance video was released of their family member committing an armed robbery.

On the video Dante Williams is clearly seen entering a South Carolina Waffle House, pointing a gun at employees and customers and attempting to rob the restaurant.

Justin Harrison was eating at the bar. Harrison, a concealed carry permit holder, was armed. He waited for an opportunity, shot Williams, and attempted to detain the second suspect.

The family of Williams says that Harrison didn’t need to shoot and shouldn’t have felt threatened. They want to change South Carolina’s carry permit laws to require more training in order to get a permit. Many gun rights activists consider time consuming and costly training requirements to be a burden on their Second Amendment rights.

According to Fox Carolina

The second suspect was eventually caught and is now in prison, serving out a 30 year sentence.

We already documented this incident back when it originally happened, so we won’t add this post to the defensive gun use database.

pointing a gun at victims is enough in any court.

Next time the parent should raise their thugs not to use guns during their crime sprees.

Family, Dante is dead because he was stupid and a criminal. Find a way to deal with that, don’t blame the man who defended himself and others lawfully and properly.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

You people kill me...

Your “respectable boy” had a gun and was threatening people in order to take what wasn’t his to have.

What’s so respectable about that?

You people are despicable if you think he didn’t deserve to get what he got.

He killed the armed robber. I think he's perfectly trained in self defense.
I cannot imagine what kind of training is the point here. Maybe dropping your
legally owned weapon that's not involved in a felony, when a robber appears?

There it is - if someone points a gun at you and tells you he is robbing you, you must not feel threatened .... (!)

Shouldn’t have felt threatened? Dear God, the man was threatening everyone in there, that’s the definition of an armed robbery.

We can see obviously that this apple didn’t fall far from the tree. That entire family is full of scum.

The family of Williams should apologize for making Harrison use is ammunition and then this sorry mess of a family should leave the country in utter shame.

Wait, let me get this straight. They want more restrictions on law-abiding gun owners. Do they want stiffer penalties for criminal gun possession or use? Maybe that would have deterred young Dante. Or, are they just seeking publicity for themselves, a possible later payout, and sympathizing with neighborhood criminals like their son?

Another one of Obama's sons has a fateful encounter with WORKPLACE VIOLENCE !!!

"he was a respectable boy"

He even had a regular job - burglarizing and robbing other people.

I wonder if his mama packed him a lunch or if he was just going to steal something when he got hungry.

One wonders if Dante Williams was a permit-holder and what sort of training he underwent prior to entering the restaurant and brandished the firearm he carried...

Hell of an epitaph: "He was sharp, goofy, loved to dance." But he lacked judgment and a moral compass. Other than that, I'm sure he was a fine fellow and a really good dancer.

A very important lesson we should all take from this case is the *huge* advantage concealed carry has over armed criminals.

The criminal(s) was brandishing his gun, and likely ready to shoot, though his intention was to rob. However, he could not keep an eye on all the staff and all the customers at once. His attention was all over the place.

The concealed carry holder had focus. When the time is right, draw your weapon and put bullets in the criminal(s).

It really didn’t matter what anyone else in the place was doing. That focus is incredibly important.

It’s not really a fair fight. But then again, it shouldn’t be.

Stricter gun laws? OK, I’ve got one. “Anyone using a gun to rob a waffle house or any other business, private residence or individual(s) shall be immediately shot in the head, no fewer than two times, with a handgun with a caliber no less than 9mm, a centerfire rifle with a caliber of 7.62 mm or more, or a shotgun of no less than 20 GA.”

The family of Williams says that Harrison didn’t need to shoot and shouldn’t have felt threatened. They want to change South Carolina’s carry permit laws to require more training in order to get a permit.

From the family's comments it is not hard to see why Williams went wrong. Shame on the parents.

Sorry parents, your children do not have a right to behave like thugs and not pay the consequences. You would be well advised to raise your children to not behave like thugs if you don't want to see them end up like the William's son and Trayvon Martin.

Harrison has shown he has had sufficient training. Good job Harrison.
