@xshularx Love that “trigger discipline” or lack there of the wife is displaying while brazenly pointing a gun at a crowd of people.

The couple confronted around 300 protesters.
Some were wearing t-shirts with the slogan 'hands up, don't shoot'.
Unconfirmed reports suggest it is possible the protesters were trespassing on private property around the McCloskey's home. But this hardly explains why they felt it was necessary to stand outside their home holding semiautomatic weapons.
Given that the Black Lives Matter protests were sparked violence against a Black man by a white police officer, this is certainly a worrying display.
