    No, do FAR more than pretending a person can be an activist by filling out online forms.

    Their yard is not a common area and you don't know jack**** about the HOA. Not was this just about trespassing.

Now, don't get me wrong, wealthy Democrats have just as much a right to defend their property from lawless mobs or even perhaps unruly protestors. But I doubt the leftwing will pillory this couple too much assuming they are Democrats.
    I agree that if they are Republican they will be charged with something and if Democrats they won't. It has become that simple in most Democrat controlled urban jurisdictions.

    Watch the video; the man can be seen pointing his assault rifle at the demonstrators, the same as is his wife.

    Re: Couple points guns at protestors

    There is something inherently wrong and dangerous in the mentality exhibited by a number of posters on this thread. Let's step back for a moment:

    Several people have expressed the view that this couple was "justified" in threatening protesters over property damage. Even the couple involved know better than that, as they used their "fear for their persons" as justification (which is belied by their 911 call and statements during the altercation). They're aware (as they're both lawyers) that no American jurisdiction follows such a rule. They also know they got caught out.

    Second, there are photos and video that a) show the couple (especially Mrs. McClosky) as the aggressors, and b) assaulting non-threatening protesters by brandishing firearms. Missouri Law Suggests St. Louis Lawyers Could Be Prosecuted for Threatening Protesters with Guns (Law&Crime).
    Under Section 571.030(4) of the Revised Statutes of Missouri, it is a crime when a person “[e]xhibits, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner.” Such a person “commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons,” which is defined as a class E felony. Such felonies carry up to four years in prison, one year in jail, and/or a $10,000 fine–but are subject to probation.

    The only dangerous viewpoint is yours by fabricating false assault charges against this couple that was threatened by at least 500 thugs who not only trespassed but tore down their entrance gate on their property and made verbal threats to them while some of thugs in the crowd of at least 500 were armed, themselves. Your garbage post is about as tyrannical as you claim white cops are.
    Lying Libs and Feminist Thots are trash. Get over it.

    Want to complain to me about white cops? Chiraq.
