Punishment well deserved. If they had kept to themselves, were not confrontational and left the guns alone I wouldn't have a problem with them flying what ever flag they want. I have a feeling they did not start the argument but they turned it into racial bigotry and threats with a deadly weapon. Actions like those are what has mutated the Confederate Flags symbolism into more than it is. Far too many people in this day and age use it not as a symbol of differences but as a symbol of hate. Not only of Blacks but everyone that isn't white and Christian. The symbol of the Democrats has been taken over by radical Republican voting hate groups. While much smaller in number than the Democrat voting hate groups all the hate for no real reason needs to end. Maybe someday it will?
