#1 Check out the wife. She actually positioned herself closer to the percieved threat. She randomly waves her gun (with her finger on the trigger no less) while verballythreatening passersbys. That is textbook brandishing.

#2 Some of the photos 'seem' to show her pointing the gun at hubby's head. If their lawyer can be believed, the gun was a prop, maybe a replica, maybe just unloaded, that the couple used in court to depict 'evil weapons of the debble'. Okay, I added those last five words. They make their living off of appearing anti-gun. I consider them perfect Democrats. Also, in other maybe 'news', a local gun shop offered to replace the AR. I don't know what happened after the purported offer, but if they end up Guv-pardoned, leg-transpondered, and armed with a couple of new AR's, well then God Bless America.

#3 I saw that they quickly rejected the shop’s offer of a replacement AR, Whiskey Mike. Whether they subsequently changed their minds, I don’t know.

#5 What I understand private property began at the gate, so is it still brandishing when the aggressor is trespassing and threatening? Don't know Missouri law.
However: prop, airsoft, whatever, in this situation they should be treated as the handling of real firearms. As should every aggressor carrying an item be up for possession of deadly weapon.
Lot of talk about the technical aspects of their wielding; I remember back in baseball nothing gave me Kermit Foot like a wild pitcher.

#6 They should have immediately shot the person or persons who broke down the gate to their home.
