Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple that captured national attention for their armed resistance to a BLM mob, have been indicted by a grand jury for exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms and defend their private property.
There is no other way to read this. George Soros-funded prosecutor Kim Gardner has abused her power by pushing a Left-wing anti-constitution agenda. She is a representative of the mob in the government, and she is advancing the woke mob’s agenda using the levers of government power.
The Daily Wire reported, “Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple that stood in front of their home over the summer holding firearms as a large group of demonstrators marched by, were indicted on Tuesday on felony weapons and evidence tampering charges.
Lawyer Joel Schwartz said he was told a grand jury indicted his clients on felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering.”
Mark McCloskey told Sean Hannity on Tuesday night that “the angry demonstrators blew past three ‘no trespassing’ signs, broke through an iron gate, and ‘threatened us with murder, with rape, with arson, with burning our house down, taking over our house, and even killing our dog.’
“You know, it’s just an attempt by this Soros-funded prosecutor to intimidate people, to warn people out there that if you stand up for yourself, exercise your Second Amendment rights, we are going to punish you–not the mob, not the criminals–but we’re going to punish you, law-abiding citizens, for trying to defend yourselves,” he added.
McCloskey is absolutely correct here. It is not a conspiracy theory to claim that George Soros has finically supported Kim Garnder. Just the News reported, “The Missouri Justice Public Safety PAC, which is linked to George Soros, has donated nearly $78,000 in contributions to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s 2020 campaign, according to her July 15, 2020 financial report.”
However, there might be a reprieve for the McCloskeys. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a brief that would dismiss the charges almost immediately. The brief stated that Schmitt “respectfully requests that the Court dismiss this case at the earliest possible opportunity.”
“The right to keep and bear arms is given the highest level of protection in our constitution and our laws, including the Castle Doctrine, which provides broad rights to Missourians who are protecting their property and lives from those who wish to do them harm,” Schmitt told Fox News, adding, “Despite this, Circuit Attorney Gardner filed suit against the McCloskeys, who, according to published reports, were defending their property and safety. As Missouri’s Chief law enforcement officer, I won’t stand by while Missouri law is being ignored.”
Missouri Governor Mike Parsons has also said that he would likely pardon the couple if they were charged. It is sad that these two men feel compelled to have to take such actions given that the Constitution and Missouri Law via the “Castle Doctrine” explicitly allows citizens of the state of Missouri to use weapons to defend their property.
It’s good that the McCloskeys will probably face no jail time or fines, however, it should never have come to this. If they can do this to them, they can do it to the rest of us, too.
