Missouri Business Owners Armed Themselves Against Rioters

No problem here.
No problem here.

There are a lot of pro-gun stories that the mainstream media would rather not tell, like the tale of two businesses just minutes down the road from the epi-center of the Ferguson, Missouri riots that stood their ground with guns in hand against the possible appearance of a raging mob:


Nobody is robbing St. Louis Ink Tattoo Studio anytime soon. Or County Guns, for that matter.

The two north-county businesses share a storefront in a Florissant strip mall less than ten minute drive from the epicenter of last night’s riots in Ferguson. After nightfall, what began as a community’s peaceful demonstration against the Ferguson Police Department’s shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown turned increasingly violent. Crowds plundered a QuikTrip and burned it to the ground, and local news began reporting brazen raids on other stores in the area.

After hearing of the roving bands of looters, Mike Gutierrez knew he had to protect his tattoo shop. He brought a posse with him, including Adam Weinstein, owner of County Guns, who was acutely worried about criminals getting their hands on his merchandise.
