What were they supposed to do?!

Washington, D.C., July 22, 2020
What in the world were they supposed to do?!

With (1) a large group of trespassers descending on private property, (2) police nowhere to be found, and (3) a legitimate fear for their personal safety, again I’ll ask: What were they supposed to do?!

Like South Carolina, the state of Missouri (where this couple lives) also has a Castle Doctrine law. They did NOT have an obligation to hide. They did NOT have an obligation to flee their home. They were under NO obligation to “dialogue” with those trespassers. What they DID have was a right to protect their safety and defend their property.

Fortunately, there’s major pushback on this wrongful prosecution. The Missouri Attorney General is working to get the charges dismissed, and the Missouri Governor has said he will pardon them if convicted.

Good. Our Second Amendment rights exist for a reason, and law-abiding citizens who are simply trying to protect their own safety should never be treated as criminals.
