    Hello Tony, can you paraphrase the link in case it’s a vertical YouTube video or a site that is blocked by work?

    Thanks for posting - I was curious about this guy's experience and what he was doing in the area and didn't know they had covered the story.

    He definitely looked like he knew a thing or two about armed conflict in the video.

    I'll give a brief synopsis - Marine that was working as executive protection for a Fox News journalist was the guy who became famous for ripping the AR out of a looter's hands after looter stole it from police vehicle.

    He was in the area escorting the journalist through the mayhem when he saw that disaster with the ARs unfolding, and recovered not one police AR but TWO police ARs from looters.

    There's an interview with the man himself at the link, for when you get a chance to check it out.

    Reporters probably wouldn't need armed security if they hadn't been fanning the flames on this ****show for years and years.

    He probably saves several lives that day and the lives are probably all other protesters. The way those guys were holding those guns I don't think they had ever held a firearm before. The one was sweeping people the whole time he had it. Only a matter of time until a ND happened and who knows what would happen after that. Could get messy.

    It's interesting that a news place would hire a man with a gun, to protect them, given all the anti gun hysteria they perpetuate.

    There's a lot of interviews on youtube. He has his stuff together and seems to be a normal dude. We sure need more like him.
