Dana Loesch has come out hard to defend the McCloskey family of St. Louis, who are now famous for defending their home from violent protesters who broke down their gate and entered their property. By some accounts the protesters were armed.
The McCloskeys feared for their lives and came to the defense of their family (including children) and their home armed with a rifle and pistol. Loesch writes that this is exactly what the Second Amendment is for. She explains:
The left wanted to defund the police, well this is what defunding the police looks like. These “peaceful protestors” weren’t peaceful. This part of St. Louis City, called Central West End, was minutes from my old house in the city — it’s just a quick trip up Kingshighway from where David Dorn was murdered by rioters and a quick skip down interstate 40 from Forest Park and Art Hill where people were beaten on camera over a statue last week. Central West End is a living museum of stately homes, a jewel of architecture in (beautiful itself) “brick city” St. Louis. These streets in particular make up a gated community within the city and “private property” signs are posted everywhere. The border to the community is marked by elaborate brick walls, archways, more appearance than anything guard shacks, and imposing iron gates. You know you are leaving public access when entering the neighborhood. Because of this, police are reportedly considering there actions of the protestors against the homeowners as “fourth degree assault by intimidation.”
