Mark McCloskey told KMOV-TV that a mob rushed toward the home as the family was having dinner and "put us in fear of our lives".

Social media users were quick to bestow the "Karen" and "Ken" monikers usually reserved for entitled white people upon the couple, lumping them in with the similarly armed white protesters who have descended upon statehouses and capitals in recent weeks to protest the injustice of being forced to wear masks in public. "Get out! Private property, get out!".
The protesters were on their way to Mayor Lyda Krewson's home.
The lawyers were home when they "a large group of subjects forcefully break an iron gate marked with "No Trespassing" and "Private Street" signs", police said.

President Donald Trump retweeted a video on Monday morning showing an unidentified white couple brandishing their firearms at anti-police brutality protesters in St. Louis, Missouri, who were peacefully marching toward city Mayor Lyda Krewson's home.
"In this climate of hatred and this climate of fear and the concern activists have for safety, we didn't feel that this was the most prudent thing to do in this particular time", Gray said.

"As a leader, you don't do stuff like that.it's only right that we visit her at her home", said state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge, D-St.
The Princeton decision is part of a sweeping reassessment of historical icons and monikers amid growing calls for racial justice following the killing of Black Americans, including George Floyd, whose death under the knee of a white police officer roused world protests. Floyd, who was handcuffed, died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on Floyd's neck for almost eight minutes.
