A couple in St. Louis yesterday came out of their home with weapons pointed at a mob of BLM protesters in order to protect their home:

Here’s more from NY Post:
A married couple brandished firearms at a group of protesters who marched through their upscale St. Louis neighborhood on Sunday night on their way to the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson.
The male homeowner stood barefoot on his Renaissance-style porch in the Central West End neighborhood while carrying a semi-automatic weapon at around 6 p.m. local time, while his wife pointed a pistol at the gathering.
The couple confronted the group of about 300 protesters after they broke down a gate in the neighborhood, according to a local NBC affiliate.
A video on Twitter showed the woman point the firearm at passing protestors while shouting.
A protester wearing a t-shirt that read, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” then urges participants to relocate into the street in an attempt to diffuse the situation.
The protesters were en route to Mayor Krewson’s home to demand her resignation after she released names and addresses of residents who suggested defunding the police department, the report said.
Below is another video that was deleted from Twitter, but I was still able to get it. As Ian Miles Cheong points out, “The so-called peaceful protesters in St. Louis screamed obscenities and threatened to seize the firearms the couple who came out to protect their home. Other clips had the sound removed so you wouldn’t hear the mob’s threats.”
What you can also see in this video is the protester, mentioned above in the Post article, trying to diffuse the situation by telling protesters to move back away from the home. I gotta say that was nice to see.
My instinct is to say I don’t like that this couple is actually pointing their weapons at the mob. I’ve always been of the attitude that you don’t point your weapon at someone unless you are going to shoot them. But then again, I don’t know what it’s like to have a mob of potential rioters on my property either. I mean that had to be what this couple was thinking after seeing all the destruction left in the wake of BLM protests all over America.
