    From the link site page:

    A social media video showed the armed couple standing outside their large home Sunday evening in the upscale Central West End neighborhood of the Missouri city.
    YouTube

    So it appears they were letting people know this was their property and they would defend it.

    I guess it now depends on what the "brandishing" laws say in regards to home defense/property rights for that jurisdiction.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Oh, the black people were breaking into their house? I didn't see that.


    If that's their house, they are a lot richer than they dress. Maybe they're the servants?

    They were on the sidewalk. Does she bring out her gun when someone takes an evening stroll on the sidewalk? Maybe when someone walks the dog?

    I'll bet the mail carrier is terrified.

    Did you watch your own video?

    Looked like a mixed crowd to me, or do you only see "Black" when you watch such reports?

    Then an ad hominem attack on the property owners.

    You don't have any right to be on anyone's property without their express permission.

    Meanwhile, after viewing the random destruction of public and private property, I don't think it is necessarily a "bad thing" to tell people to get off your property, and show you mean business.

    Or would you prefer we start pulling up video of store/home owners doing the same in areas with the threat of rioting?

    Still, it remains (as I clearly stated) how the laws of that jurisdiction can and/or will be applied to the situation.

    I'm pretty sure assault with a deadly weapon is a forcible felony and thus according to SYG shooting her would not result in being charged.

    Did the woman even have a firearm?



    One of the other videos identifies the homeowners as lawyers.....

    That's a very good point. The moment she whips out that gun, if someone shot her dead, that would be self defense.

    If you are outnumbered, you make yourself a target by brandishing. Better to remain in the house and only expose the weapon when you intend to use it. And best to intend to use it only if you are in legitimate fear for your life.
