Yep, and if is was a weapon, she'd be a fool to have a stare down with a Walther PPK vs an AR-15!

Inside the gate, more than a dozen men in plain clothes walked the grounds and peered out from a second-floor balcony of the couple’s home.

It's called a shotgun mic.
Very directional and pretty common.

These days it IS used as a sort of weapon by the rioters (oh... pardon me, that was racist. I meant to say peaceful protestors or people in a "parade" which I guess will be the next thing the media calls them) .

They stir the pot until the person/people react and that is what we hear and with their videos, what we see. They are masters of that crap. The media sucks it up and counter videos are ignored by them. But everyone loves a parade don't they?

Default Lawyer for white St. Louis couple who defended their home plans for their arrest

https://youtu.be/ySDshJf4LNs

Lots happening with this case. Maybe couple will be arrested and the mob will revisit the home while they are in jail. City Attorney is on the side of the mob. No telling in 2020.

I guess the best policy is to stay inside the home and start shooting once they break in. If you are white and show your gun outside, you go to jail.

Hmm, what to do if they don't break-in but rather break the windows and toss Molotov cocktails inside? Do you burn up inside your home or come out shooting?

While I don't know if it applies to this case, unfortunately in some jurisdictions if you pull out a gun and than DON"T shoot anyone you can be charged with brandishing. This despite the fact that showing the weapon is what kept you from having to shoot the person and thus saved their life.

I think the issue here is not that they had the firearms outside of their property, but that they were pointing them at people. Am I right? Or missing something?

Sounds right. But even if not pointing, depends on how the city / state define brandishing.

The city attorney may love for the house to be destroyed as payback. The inside is a museum.

Depends on the city politics, the color of DA, shooter and rioters.

But I'm with you.

I hope the couple keeps their security detail and has lots of $$ to pay them for the foreseeable future.

You’d think with what appear to be good amount of money behind them that they’d invest in some training to go along with that vintage AR. That whole situation could have turned ugly given how horrible that was handled. I get that they thought they were defending their property but there is more than one way to skin a cat and they looked completely bare, out in the open, exposed, and completely out of their element. They took the bait. Lots of people out there I have been seeing lately are taking the bait.

Doesn't look like any camera I ever saw. Though it isn't ringing any bells as a weapon either.

the tube extension is a directional (also know as shotgun) microphone, not a camera or a long gun. However, under pressure it is easy to understand them thinking that it might be.

It should be noted that firearms have been disguised as camera/microphones in the past.
