St. Louis Couple Uses AR-15, Pistol to Defend Home from Protesters

St. Louis Couple Uses AR-15, Pistol to Defend Home from Protesters, by AWR Hawkins.

A St. Louis, Missouri, couple used an AR-15 and a pistol to defend their home Sunday as protesters marched through their neighborhood.

The homeowner told KMOV4 he came out armed because the protesters allegedly burst through a historic gate on the way to his property.

He said, “A mob of at least 100 smashed through the historic wrought iron gates of Portland Place, destroying them, rushed towards my home where my family was having dinner outside and put us in fear of our lives.”

Media headlines seem to be leaving out some context about armed St. Louis couple guarding their home as ‘peaceful protesters’ were ‘passing by’. By Twitchy.

CBS News reported that the protesters were merely “passing by” …

However, there’s some context missing from many headlines:

“Where in your article does it say the passed through a PRIVATE PROPERTY gate, marked with NO TRESPASSING signs?
“A white couple” who the hell cares what color they are? They were defending their property from an angry mob of 500 people.

The media of course are delighted that they have found rich, white Trump supporters apparently behaving badly. Not so fast…

Glenn Reynolds:

Media spin: CHOP/CHAZ, which keeps actually shooting unarmed black men (and boys of 14) is “mostly peaceful.” White Democrat couple that defends its home without shooting anyone: Violent racists!

A friend on Facebook observes that although the wife clearly knows nothing about guns, she armed up and stood by her man. You could do worse — though please, go take some lessons now.
