St. Louis Couple Who Brandished Guns to Protect Home From Unruly Mob Charged With Felonies

ST. LOUIS, MO – After forcibly and violently breaking the front gate of their private community a husband and wife in St. Louis exercised their second amendment rights to defend their lives and property.  Now, they are being charged with felonies.  They have been charged by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner of turning a peaceful protest into a violent situation.

“It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner — that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis,” Gardner said.

If convicted, they could each be sentenced to up to four years in prison.  Missouri Governor Mike Pearson has already said he would pardon the couple if they were to be convicted.
