The latest battle in the war against our founding is being waged in St. Louis, where a couple is being prosecuted by a district attorney whose campaign was largely funded by the sedition-minded billionaire George Soros.
Their crime? Reliance on the Second Amendment and Missouri's "Stand Your Ground" law to protect their home with guns from a large, threatening mob of Black Lives Matter protestors who broke down a fence and stormed into their private neighborhood last month.
The prosecutor, Kim Gardner, is charging Mark and Patricia McCloskey with unlawful uses of firearms, though the state statutes clearly empower homeowners to do just that if they are being threatened on their own property.
"It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner — that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis," Gardner said in a statement, adding she is recommending that the couple be made to do community service instead of pushing for jail time (they face four years in prison and a $10,000 fine).
