BLM Protestors Given a Scare After Confronting a Restaurant Patron Toting a Gun

BLM protestors in Louisville, Kentucky were given quite the scare on Saturday night after confronting a restaurant patron who they soon came to find out was armed and had a gun pointed in their direction to fend off any possible confrontation.

Coinciding with the 147th Kentucky Derby, the protest was held in memory of Breonna Taylor, who was fatally shot by police last year. The protestors stopped outside of La Chasse on Bardstown Road just after 8:30 p.m. The restaurant is just five miles from Churchill Downs. It was reported that amid the outside tables and chairs, a patron of the restaurant stood pointing a gun at the protestors during a confrontation.

There is no indication as to what led to the confrontation, but it’s no news that BLM protestors have been known to harass and terrorize patrons as they dine - just like this scene from last year in D.C:

There was no way this patron was going to let anything happen to him.

A video of the confrontation between the patron and protestors starts with the older, nicely dressed gentleman pointing a gun in the direction of protestors yelling and making gestures at him. The protestors made sure to keep their distance., although, one protestor is heard shouting “You’re not the only one with a gun!”

That protestor was right.

Two men walking among the group, seemingly acting as security for them, were armed with rifles and handguns and came face-to-face with the gun-toting patron.

Other restaurant-goers, employees and protestors tried to keep things calm.

There were no reports of any arrests according to sources reporting on the matter.

Videos posted to Twitter showing the encounter were met with nothing short of praise for the gun-toting patron from various users:

One user wrote: "THESE BLM turds NEED TO STAY THE F*** OUT OF PEOPLE LIVES. People that did nothing to harass get harassed in return. It's going to backfire sooner than you think."
