They're fighting the other neighbors to claim, unironically, the plot of land where the trustees' "Private Property" sign is, or was.

It's a

Very adverse possession case.

After seeing his wife, Bushmaster probably IS his nickname.

Also, dude, anything master is not the preferred nomenclature. anything-monarch, please.

It's also a right handed model being held left handed. These clowns are gun idiots. From the house it is clear he could afford a better variant AND a left handed model.

Is she helping Mr Magoo point the gun at a threat rather than just a black walnut tree?

I mean, she's got her finger on the trigger, so she's ready to go.  There's probably an angry woodchuck just out of frame.

What about her?  If you watch the video, that seems to be her preferred firing position.

It's okay to won guns.
It;s okay, God forbid, to use one if you absolutely have to.
But brandishing them at others in an attempt to intimidate, when there is no necessity or intent to use them, is not helpful or socially acceptable behavior, and wise gun use, and should be eschewed.

Barfmaker: These people are going through a living hell now, what a shame.


If the law won't take their firearms away in spite of brandishing them at unarmed protestors in the sidewalk NOR are they able to deny them possession based on the couple's abject incompetence in handling said weapons, then they get tried in the court of public opinion.

fark em, I hope the self memers crater and have to sell their palace.
 
2020-07-02 12:25:52 PM  
What an awful farking article. First sentence:

The day after Mark and Patricia McCloskey made national news, they lost in court.

Three paragraphs later:

On Monday, Judge Joan Moriarty ruled against the McCloskeys' motion to end the case without a trial. So the three-year battle rages on.

That's where I stopped reading and made a mental note to never again read anything written by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and man constantly huffing his own farts Tony Messenger.

The articles I read say they pointed the guns at the protesters, which at common law would have been an assault. Did they merely "brandish" them? Or did they actually point them at people? And if the latter, are they being prosecuted? If not, why not?
 
2020-07-02 12:26:25 PM  
tl;dr, they are assholes and always have been.
 
2020-07-02 12:26:45 PM  
Well well well.   Yet these clowns look like they've never taken a firearms safety course.  That's how people shoot themselves while cleaning a gun by failing to remove a round they stupidly chambered.

Cops don't like to bother rich people. It's a no win deal from them. They have to take a lot of abuse and bullying, and then their expensive  lawyers get them off in the end anyway.

Based on the pics she was pointing her pistol at people, arm extended, finger on the trigger.

I too get all worked up when the violent, lawless protesters, walk down my private alley with their venti Starbucks iced mocha frappacinos and cell phones acting like they can photograph my short, awkward-looking, pink polo shirt wearing, assault-weapon waving husband like we're animals in a zoo.

Adverse ownership via gun is pretty much how the whole country came to be owned by white people. They have precedent on their side.

They seem to be too drunk/high for that to be entirely clear. They probably did break the law, but the cops are going to always drag their feet when it involves going after rich white people.

The quickest way to turn a peaceful protest into a riot is to let untrained assholes wave guns around, IMHO. Charge the woman with brandishing lethal weapon since she had her finger on the trigger while pointing that gun at peoples faces. Hubby seemed a bit more restrained and you could probably make the case that he merely stood his ground.

I doubt it's powerful enough for that much kickback. She certainly won't hit what she's aiming at, probably hit a kid across the street with that pose.

Yes, she pretty clearly seems to be pointing her gun at the black woman taking a picture.

It's a good defense to try to break every one of your actions down to the, "In my opinion I felt..." case
and not really the facts of the matter...The "They looked like they were coming right at me and I was scared".
Is hard to refute that with any actual facts.....And it's a TOTAL COP OUT..  Despite the fact they were
in no danger, and in fact escalated the situation in the first place all gets tossed to the side because
white people were scared...

Her complete lack of trigger discipline makes me twitchy.  Thank dog she was only on her 1st bottle of chardonnay or things might have gone south really fast.

Hard to say, since nothing even vaguely resembling that took place on the occasion we have to use as an example. Anybody's guess, really - they seemed to be pretty drunk, and high, and not very smart - so that complicates matters.
Who knows what racist, paranoid idiots think.

She's definitely putting those lawful protesters in reasonable fear of imminent harmful contact. She's a thug and a dumb vicious animal and she belongs in a cage. I hope someone reports these people to police.

it certainly doesn't seems like it

probably because they are both pudgy, white, middle-aged, personal injury lawyers?

who have already hired their own lawyer, an infamous "media fixer" who once bragged he pushed a woman to suicide?

and they're rich enough to own a truly tacky house that's so big they have to pay other people to clean and maintain it? before they run out, barefoot in the grass they pay others to cut, and wave some guns around?

https://abovethelaw.com/2020/06/st-lo​u​is-ar-15-couple-hires-lawyer-with-some​-disturbing-marketing-material/

i really wonder if they are "liked" in the saint louis richer-persons-scene, or if they are as trump was to manhattan high society?
