Triggered Libs Seize Guns From Viral Couple Who Defended Their Home From Protesters
Mark and Patricia McCloskey were at home when protesters started passing their house. At first, there was not an issue but after the supposed peaceful protesters tore down their front gate the McCloskey's took action and let the protesters know they would not be tread upon. The video went viral where the husband is holding his AR-15 and the wife has a small handgun. The protesters that followed were clearly made aware that the property was defended. But for some reason, they are being seen as the aggressors and the police have confiscated their weapons.
"Joel Schwartz, the couple’s lawyer, said a search warrant was served Friday evening and that the gun Mark McCloskey was holding in the video was seized. Schwartz told The Associated Press that arrangements have been made to turn over to authorities on Saturday the gun that Patricia McCloskey had been holding, adding that her gun was inoperable at the time of the protest and still is.
The couple has not been charged, and Schwartz said charges against them would be “absolutely, positively unmerited.”
“A search warrant being executed is clear indication of what the circuit attorney’s intentions are. Beyond that, I can’t comment,” Schwartz said.

"Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, who is St. Louis’ top prosecutor, issued a statement after the June 28 incident in which she said she was “alarmed” by what happened and that “any attempt to chill (the right to peacefully protest) through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated.” Calls to Gardner’s office on Saturday ran unanswered.
Schwartz said that under Missouri law, people who are in reasonable apprehension or fear have the right to take necessary steps to defend themselves."
It looks like Gardner is out of line here. The McCloskeys were well within their rights to defend themselves and their home. But of course, the MSM and this prosecutor are trying to make them look like they were attacking innocent peaceful protesters.
