Of course we’re talking about the St. Louis couple who brandished firearms at “peaceful protesters” who knocked down a gate and marched through their private property. Plenty of lefties can’t believe that they haven’t been arrested yet for pointing guns at people, but as The Federalist reports, left-wing think tank president Jerry Taylor wouldn’t have waited for the police. In a now-deleted tweet, he says he would have rushed the couple, beaten their brains in, and not apologized either.

From what I can see looking at their tweets and such, this Niskanen outfit isn’t so much “lefty” as NeverTrump libertarians. But I admit I’m not familiar

As for Niskanen’s Jerry Taylor, who wrote about brain splattering the couple who defended their house, I’ll bet he regrets spending his weekend on twitter!

As would many of the people outside, the homeowners were scared to death, nobody should be put in this position with non-responsive police ignoring 911 calls. The lack of immediate response infuriates me - a good campaign theme to get soccer moms on board with law and order.

Yeah, it's a sticky wicket. It turns out they are BLM supporting demonicRATS. It's a kind of immunity. Kind of like a black person being allowed to say the "n" word.

The Tueller Drill is a self-defense training exercise to prepare against a short-range knife or melee attack when armed only with a holstered handgun.

Sergeant Dennis Tueller of the Salt Lake City Police Department wondered how quickly an attacker with a knife, or other melee weapon, could cover 21 feet (6.4 m), so he timed volunteers as they raced to stab the target. He determined that it could be done in 1.5 seconds. These results were first published as an article in SWAT magazine in 1983 and in a police training video by the same title, “How Close Is Too Close?”[1][2]

Yes, we know.

So do they.

That is why they had their guns.

Yeah, good luck wiff dat. Homeowner had 30 rounds loaded. Should have had his first two or three targets in mind. Then, see who scatters, and who advances. Get to the door, and more ammunition.

I suspect that this guy is trying to get someone martyred. Someone else, of course.

Beat their brains in peacefully.

This brainiac must think the homeowner was holding an imaginary "Biden AR14".

Jerry looks like he works out but, if Jerry had rushed me I don’t think he would wake up in a hospital.

Given the size of the crowd and the pack mentality that seems to go with it, Jerry’s family would be distraught because they couldn’t attend his funeral...

Talks cheap when it ain’t you standing in the street facing an armed home owner.

My sentiments, exactly. All he would have gotten would have been ventilated - presuming, of course, he did more than talk the talk - highly doubtful.

Jerry Taylor sounds like he wants to be the next poster child for gun sales. The left still fails to grasp the meaning of the 2A.

Don’t think maw and paw with the shootin’ irons have spent too much time at the range, either. Check maw’s finger on the trigger. Paw ain’t too much better.

Heck, they could try out for a part on Law & Order SVU...

This guy used to be a CATO dude. Apparently he went insane, embraced global warming hysteria, and now advocates for a carbon tax. He’s such a brave guy, online, yet he protected his tweets because, fragile ego and all...

I took a course last year, and it was acted out by the instructor and various volunteers from the attendees.

It was interesting. When he got a little old lady up there and asked if he was safe everyone said “Yeah” and then he showed a video of the same thing happening in real life, and we all had our mouths open.

Nobody thought a little old lady could cover the ground she did...

And when the guy next got the fit, ex-Marine out of the group and asked how far away he would have to be, we nearly had to request an addition be built on the room!

It was illuminating, to say the least.

He’s a “thinker.” To valuable to the cause. He’s rushing nobody.

Were they actually loaded? Some weapons LOOK loaded but may not be. Who wants to take that chance. Mr. libertarian long distance tough talker? Who does he think he is? Chuck Norris? :-)
