Business Owners With AR-15s Protect Their Stores from Ferguson Rioters

A group of business owners in Ferguson saved their strip mall shops from being looted and burned by standing guard outside their shops armed with AR-15 semi-automatic rifles–the same sort of guns liberals falsely claim are “assault weapons.”

The business owners formed their little armed security team after some of the shops were vandalized in August during the first series of riots in the troubled St. Louis suburb.

The business owners were not about to let this happen again.

Along West Florissant just north of 270, in Greystone Plaza, about 20 men with handguns and AR-15 rifles stood around the perimeter of the parking lot, guarding the dozen or so stores.

They estimated that 100 cars had come by throughout the night, seemingly to check the place out, but turned away.

Mike Cross, the owner of St. Louis Ink at the plaza, said: “There’s nothing in this strip mall open, so you’re going to get scrutinized.”

Now THAT is what the Second Amendment was made for! Good on these folks.
