The Attorney General of Missouri stepped-in Thursday to dismiss the case against a St. Louis couple who defended their home with firearms during an anti-police protest; accusing the city’s prosecutor of engaging in “political persecution.”
“Citizens shouldn’t be targeted for exercising their #2A right to self-defense. STL prosecutor Kim Gardner is engaged in a political prosecution. As AG I’m entering the case seeking a dismissal & defend all Missourians’ right to protect their lives/property,” said Eric Schmitt.

“The Missouri couple who protected their home with firearms, they’ve been charged with a felony… There were no police that night. The gate was broken down. They’ve now taken their weapons away. Will you pardon them?” asked Hannity.
“Without a doubt. I’ll do everything within the Constitution of the State of Missouri to protect law abiding citizens. They’re being attacked by a political process. They had every right to protect their property and their home,” said the Governor.
“People have a right to protect themselves, their families, and their property,” he added.

HANNITY: Will Our Leaders Seek Justice for the Victims of Mob Violence, Looting, Riots?
Sean Hannity weighed-in Wednesday night on the ongoing civil unrest sweeping the United States; asking if our leaders will seek justice for the victims of mob violence taking place in more than 100 cities.
“They’re sick, they’re twisted individuals who should be locked up for a very long time… For the most part, there is unanimous agreement on this. Will they seek justice for the victims of mob violence? Look at the St. Louis police captain who was shot and killed by looters. Will they demand justice for the Vegas officer shot in the head?” asked Hannity.
“All violence, this is unacceptable. Anarchy has been out of control in New York City. One NYPD officer was mowed down by a rioter in a car. More than 30 members of the NYPD injured by rioters,” he added.
