Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves (R) spoke up for the armed couple who stood outside their home to keep protesters away by saying they were “totally within their rights.”
Reeves used a Facebook post to say:
The media is usually swarming to attack a couple in Missouri for brandishing firearms while telling protestors to leave their property. that will’s become a huge national story. Maybe This kind of group had peaceful intent, yet the country has seen a ton of violence. The group entered their gate as well as marched up to their front door. I think these homeowners were totally within their rights (although they might want to work on trigger discipline).
Reeves added, “Private property still exists in This kind of country as well as the 2nd Amendment is usually not for hunting—that will’s for self defense.”
