STATE STEPS IN: Missouri AG Moves to Drop Case Against Couple Who Defended Home with Firearms

The Attorney General of Missouri stepped-in Thursday to dismiss the case against a St. Louis couple who defended their home with firearms during an anti-police protest; accusing the city’s prosecutor of engaging in “political persecution.” He continued with the logical, and DUH of the week comment! I can’t believe whoever the arresting officers were on this case should be ashamed of themselves. “Citizens shouldn’t be targeted for exercising their #2A right to self-defense. STL prosecutor Kim Gardner is engaged in a political prosecution. As AG I’m entering the case seeking a dismissal & defend all Missourians’ right to protect their lives/property,” said Eric Schmitt.“They were defending the safety of their family. Enough is enough. I simply will not standby as our laws become ignored,” he added.

Missouri Governor Mike Parson stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on the St. Louis couple who defended their home with firearms; saying he will “without a doubt” pardon them should they be convicted of a felony. “The Missouri couple who protected their home with firearms, they’ve been charged with a felony… There were no police that night. The gate was broken down. They’ve now taken their weapons away. Will you pardon them?” asked Hannity.
