They were put in a No-win situation. The plea they took amounts to a fine, and they get to keep their 2nd Ammendment rights. I'm told he he already upgraded to a new AR. I would call what they did here as a strategic retreat. They can now move forward.
I don't agree. The MO Governor went on record that they would be pardoned if convicted so they weren't going to lose their 2A rights. They only took the plea deal so these millionaires could save money on legal fees, principals be damned. People have a right to defend themselves, their property, and should never have been charged. How many rioters got charged? None.
Nice that he got a new gun but I hope the coward loses his election.
