Waffle House hero James Shaw considers running for Mayor


The hero from the Antioch Waffle House shooting says he’s considering running for mayor of Nashville.

James Shaw, Jr. says part of his platform would focus on gun laws if he chooses to run. 

He says he’s confident people in Nashville would vote for him. 

“I just want Nashville to become more together and more whole like it was when I was growing up,” said Shaw. 

Shaw talked with News 2 at Macy’s at the Green Hills Mall, where he helped launch the Make-A-Wish Believe campaign. Children can drop off a letter to Santa at any Macy’s store. For every letter, Macy’s will donate a dollar to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
