  • I love how the media focused on the fact that these people had guns pointed at peaceful protesters. And everyone in this "fake news' story tries to justify a rusted fence as a defense for this CULT breaking onto private property and then claiming the homeowners should be prosecuted for protecting themselves?!?!. Ok, America 🇺🇸

  • Just more blm breaking the law. Your on private property and thinking y’all are doing nothing wrong or just don’t care. That one guy said people just started to walk in like that’s a reason to be able to go on someone’s private property. There was also a sign but it doesn’t matter because the law doesn’t apply to blm. Rioting, looting, trespassing and blocking roads.

  • Seeing these comments I understand that they are defending private property, but they could have done so without waving their guns around.I think that just seems reckless,have your gun, but don't just start waving around because that's a Pandora's box not worth opening

  • So what if she had her finger on the trigger, the guns where NEVER SHOT. the protestors INVADED PRIVATE PROPERTY how is that peaceful? why don’t they get a fine for trespassing because THEY broke the law, they could’ve stayed behind the gate if they were so peaceful but they had bad intentions and thank god the couple had guns because their house would’ve been vandalized. I swear people lack common sense.

  • It is a gated community and the couple were simply protecting their property and their families. That is their right and the course of action that any sane human would pursue under the circumstances. There is nothing racist about their actions whatsoever.

  • Peaceful Protesters wanting to burn down their house...now, what would you do? Defend your property or let them burn it after breaking down the front gate and trespassing on their property...leftist articles online say the homeowners should be held accountable for waving guns at peaceful protesters...the media are the enemy of the people.

  • Even if you have the right you need to think about the situation the guy put his wife in a very dangerous situation all it took was one crazy or scared protester also with a firearm and it could have turned into a big mess with a lot of people dead they weren't on your property they didn't do anything to your house did everyone on that black go outside with firearms and if not did their homes get destroyed no they didn't stupid Choice stupid decision just cuz you have the right to bear arms doesn't mean you have to flaunt it

  • Okay forget about all that what if 10 protesters also had guns who do you think would have won that fight! Thank God no one in the protest was carrying or decided to pull out their firearms because what they did was nothing but antagonizing if you have an issue call the police don't step outside with your firearms you could have gotten a lot of innocent people killed

  • If they had just stood there with their guns pointed up in the air or holstered in the case of the handgun, no problem. But when you are sweeping your barrel across a crowd that is not threatening you, you are committing a crime. Tresspassing or not. You learn that in any gun course or concealed carry course. It's that simple
