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 with 308 ammo, 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,

“It still puzzles us as to why he would do something so crazy,” said McSwain…

“…He was always sharp, always goofy, loved to dance, he was a respectable boy,” McSwain said.

McSwain said her family was disappointed that Harrison wasn’t charged in the shooting and says her family is still considering pursuing other legal action against him.

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.
