“Most looters kept walking when they saw the AR-15 and the guns,” a small business owner said when asked why he was standing in front of his store with firearms.
LONG BEACH, CA – Violent protests and rampage had gripped dozens of cities in the U.S. after the death of George Floyd due to police brutality sparked outrage in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Many of the legitimate protests though have now evolved into large-scale looting, mayhem and rampant crimes. Desperate to defend their livelihoods, some small business owners are now arming themselves against looters.
There are already reports of shots being fired against looters. A South Philadelphia gun shop owner shot and killed a man trying to break into his store early Tuesday morning amid heightened looting concerns.
A sheriff in Florida took things a step further yesterday and warned looters during a news conference that residents of his county “…like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns… And if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns.”
The following are four recent videos that have surfaced on social media websites and on the internet over the past 48 hours that show small business owners defending their property with firearms against looters.
Viewers are cautioned that there is swearing and coarse language used in some of these videos.
