Trump, MO Gov, vow to protect St. Louis couple’s gun rights
President Trump has vowed to use federal authority to stand up for a couple that was widely seen on social media protecting their home from Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said he talked to Trump before a daily coronavirus news conference. He claims that the president assured him that he’d do everything he could as president to help the couple who, he says, is being unjustly investigated by the Soros-funded, progressive prosecutor in St. Louis.
“He understands the situation in St. Louis and how out of control it is for a prosecutor to let violent criminals off and not do their job and try to attack law-abiding citizens,” Parson said.
Trump and Parson have an ally in Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley (R), who called the St. Louis prosecutor’s action “an abuse of power.”
“This morning I have asked the Department of Justice to open a civil rights investigation into the St Louis Circuit Attorneys Office. Targeting law abiding citizens who exercise constitutionally protected rights for investigation & prosecution is an abuse of power,” tweeted Hawley.
The prosecutor, Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, meanwhile, is alleging that she’s getting “death threats” by supporters of the couple, oblivious to the irony that perhaps the couple felt threatened when protesters broke onto their property.
Gardner, a progressive Democrat who has received at least $190,750 from ultra-progressive George Soros, went so far as to evoke KKK imagery when speaking about Trump’s support of the couple.
“This is a modern-day night ride, and everybody knows it,” Gardner said in an interview with The Washington Post, referring to KKK attempts to cow blacks by riding horses through their neighborhoods with torches. “And for a president to participate in it, in the larger context of racism and cronyism, is scary.”
Parson addressed the larger question of criminality that has sprung from local and state leaders around the country who have not aggressively enforced the law in the face of protesters who have not obeyed the laws when protesting.
“Tomorrow we will be in a special session. We will be talking about violent crime and the changes that need to be made. Things have to change in this state. If people are going to take an oath, like I did as a Sheriff. You need to serve justice equally for all and you need to abide by the laws of the constitution,” said Gov. Parson.
WalletHub recently ranked St Louis the most dangerous city in America, outstripping Detroit for that honor.
