Mayor Lyda Krewson Called to resignation After St. Louis Couple Draw Guns on Protesters
A married couple brandished firearms at a group of protesters who marched through their upscale St. Louis neighborhood on Sunday night on their way to the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson.
The male homeowner stood barefoot on his Renaissance-style porch in the Central West End neighborhood while carrying a semi-automatic weapon at around 6 p.m. local time, while his wife pointed a pistol at the gathering.
The couple confronted the group of about 300 protesters after they broke down a gate in the neighborhood, according to a local NBC affiliate.
A video on Twitter showed the woman point the firearm at passing protestors while shouting.

Protest at the services, make their community ashamed to associate with them. Force the head of the church to apologize on their behalf, stage a church boycott and report the church’s non-profit status for endorsing white supremacy. This is how you get rich white conservatives.

NOPE. I do not want to DEFUND the police. But if they end up doing it. That’s what Liberal’s want. The elite don’t want to come right out and kill people. They would rather we “humanely” do it ourselves. With civil war, race war.. WELCOME BACK TO THE WILD WEST. pic.twitter.com/Cbs5FJhosO
