Despite what the media would like you to think, St. Louis couple Mark & Patricia McCloskey are not gun wielding psychopaths who decided to terrorize a bunch of saintly protesters.
The organized mob broke into their gated community and marched up the street in an intimidation campaign meant to bring fear to the neighborhood.
The McCloskeys had the right to defend themselves and their home from the threat of mob violence.
But not according to the liberal attorney, Kim Gardner, who is investigating the couple and had their guns seized.
But now Missouri Governor, Mike Parson, says he will pardon them if they are charged.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said on Friday that he would pardon the St. Louis couple that pointed guns at Black Lives Matter protesters marching past their home last month.
In an interview on the "Marc Cox Morning Show" on 97.1 FM, Parson said if Mark and Patricia McCloskey were to face charges for the June 28 incident, he doesn't "think they're going to spend any time in jail."
The McCloskeys are currently being investigated by Democratic Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after they were caught on videos posted to social media brandishing guns at a stream of protesters who were marching to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson's house. Parson said the couple "did what they legally should do."
"A mob does not have the right to charge your property," he said on the radio show. "They had every right to protect themselves."
"Right now, if this is all about going after them for doing a lawful act, then yeah, if that scenario ever happened, I don't think they're going to spend any time in jail," Parson added.
Insider previously reported that Missouri law says a person "commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons" if "he or she knowingly exhibits, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner."
Parson later posted a link to his interview on Twitter, where he wrote "We will not allow law-abiding citizens to be targeted for exercising their constitutional rights."
And Governor Parson is not the only one taking notice of the case.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Mark McCloskey confirmed that President Trump sent in Federal support to protect the couple's neighborhood during additional nights of "protest."
From our friends atFox News:
Missouri attorney Mark McCloskey, who along with his wife Patricia brandished legally owned firearms when confronted by Black Lives Matter protesters at their St. Louis home last month, told "Hannity" on Tuesday that he believes President Trump quietly intervened when protesters returned to his neighborhood for a second time July 3.
"The second night that people came and the cops were there ... I had a source on the ground and I've not been able to confirm it, maybe you can," host Sean Hannity told McCloskey. "Is it true President Trump sent in people to defend your neighborhood and nobody knew about it?"
"That's the information we have," McCloskey responded. "I think we got help from the very top. That night, we had cooperation, I think, from the federal government, from the state government, the local police department. That night everybody stood up like champs but it came from the top down.
"I can't express my appreciation enough for everybody involved," he added.

McCloskey joined "Hannity" after he told told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that "the rumor is that" he and his wife "are going to be indicted shortly" over the June 28 incident that received national attention.
The couple told "Hannity" last week that they were preparing to sit down for dinner on their porch when "300 to 500 people" stormed their community gate and began moving toward them.
"[They said] that they were going to kill us," Patricia McCloskey recalled at the time. "They were going to come in there. They were going to burn down the house. They were going to be living in our house after I was dead, and they were pointing to different rooms and said, 'That’s going to be my bedroom and that’s going to be the living room and I’m going to be taking a shower in that room.'"
McCloskey maintained Tuesday that he and his wife "did nothing wrong" in protecting their home and vowed that they will not "be intimidated" by authorities subjecting them to an investigation."
The McCloskey case is an important one for the nation.
It underscores the mainstream attempt to villainize law abiding gun ownership while turning the blind eye to murder sprees in liberal cities.
This case is about upholding the Constitution or bending the knee to the mob.
Thankfully we still have leaders like Parson who will not allow his citizens to be human sacrifice for the Cancel Culture.
