I do this for a living, ie real estate....it is 100% private and their property. The developer owns nothing, they turn it over to the home owners, like a condo, the HOA owns the private road and the HOA is owned by the home owners.I agree that they have every right to not want the protesters on their yard.
I also agree that the protesters shouldn't be intimidating people with threats of violence.
But... if we're going to be super technical about this, isn't it true that the road is likely not THEIR private property? The gate is likely not theirs. So, they don't have a right to tell others what they can and cannot do on it. That would fall on the owner of the property, which is likely the developer. Right?
By the way, is it possible that the poor little thin shitty waist-high metal gate was mangled by people fleeing to leave after the two people pointed guns at them? If that's the case, if I'm the developer or whoever owns the gate, I think it would be pretty easy to show that the two homeowners were responsible for the destruction of property. An ironic twist for sure.
It wasnt a waist high gate, it was taller and it was antique and valuable, but that part isnt the point...and no it was locked so the protesters broke it down and came in......and its legally the exact same if they broke down their door and broke in....it is 100% trespassing and violent and they have a right to protect their property including the street.
You are just making excuses because you dont want Ken and Barbie to be right... but in this case, Ken and Barbie are justified and in the right.
