Absolutely you should live in constant fear, and if a group of men walk past your house make sure to go stand outside and wave a gun around, you know so you feel so much safer.
Those were not men walking by their house it was a mob on PRIVATE property.

I jumped over a farmers fence yesterday... There was a patch of tasty looking shrooms that I just had to pick.... By the sounds of things in this thread, I would have been shot by many of you people had I been in range.
This disturbs me.
We don't do that here in Oz.

They weren't protecting anything from anyone. The protestors were LET IN, they didn't "break in". They weren't doing anything to that couple.
And honestly, I don't care what side of the various debates you fall on to, but that lady waving that gun around like that is ridiculously dangerous. She could've accidentally shot someone NOT on her property, herself OR her husband.
I thought you NRA nuts wanted guns for responsible people. Waving guns around like that at people is not responsible. I hope it's criminal.

Responsible gun owner here with a C.C.W. and a
member of the NRA...
I would not have gone out to my front yard.I would
have stayed inside and watched from the windows.
They would have to be forcing their way into my home
before I would react.Outside of my home,the bushes
and flowers can be replaced,people can not be.
To me, these people look like panic gun buyers. Those iron sights probably aren't even zeroed. The woman with her finger on the trigger flagging everyone, including her husband, need to be educated ASAP. That was not a stand-up moment. That was embarrassing.
This couple was reacting out of fear and doing nothing more than trying to show teeth.

While the way they were brandishing the guns is not the best way to do it, I agree with what they were trying to do.
I would have done the same but just not they way they were doing it.
That and better training, it is clear the lady has zero looking at her trigger discipline.
For all we know these might be new gun owners there has been an increase in guns sales in mostly suburban liberals first because of corona then even more after the riots.
They may not have any fire arm experience. They could be wealthy Liberals that panicked weeks earlier because they saw what was going on and decided the needed to arm themselves .

Ok, where's the proof that any of these people have beaten anyone or killing them..
You said there were reports, where are they?
If you wouldnt consider it ok for the residents of Charlottesville to sit outside their homes pointing guns at the army of unite the righters that invaded their city dressed for war like these two are then you are using a double standard.
