WATCH:Couple points guns at protesters marching past St. Louis home

WATCH VIDEO
A white couple pointed a pistol and an assault-style rifle at protesters marching past a mansion in St. Louis, Mo., on Sunday, drawing a retweet from the president and fierce debate on social media.

The incident happened on Sunday evening while Black Lives Matter protesters were passing through a lavish gated community on their way to the mayor’s residence to demand her resignation.
Video recorded from the march shows a middle-aged white man brandishing an AR-15-style rifle on the front step of the home, which is located just inside the gate of a private street. A middle-aged white woman is also shown holding a pistol alongside the man.
The video shows the barefooted couple yelling and pointing their weapons at the protesters, who make no move to approach them.
“Let’s go!” a voice in the march can be heard shouting. “Let’s go!”
