ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Armed men and women are scheduled to walk through the streets of Ferguson today.
It’s a protest organized by gun rights advocate Sam Andrews.

Andrews is a former Oath Keeper who’s still upset about his experiences during last year’s riots.
“We went to guard people in Ferguson, and they unlawfully attempted to confiscate our guns and tried to force us out of the city when we were on private property,” Andrews says.
Now he plans to gather at South Florissant Road and Suburban Avenue at 11 a.m., hear some speeches, and then march to the Ferguson Police Department with 100 or more participants.
KMOX reached out to St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger and St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, but neither would comment for this story.
