We have the right to bear arms and protect our property and the McCloskeys did just that.
The viral St. Louis couple who stood in front of their house holding guns when they were confronted by Black Lives Matters protesters will receive a pardon if their convicted said Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.
The McCloskeys were indicted earlier in the week on charges of exhibiting guns during a protest.

MSN came through with these details:
The armed St. Louis couple who confronted Black Lives Matters protesters outside their house are all but guaranteed an immediate pardon if they’re convicted, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said Wednesday.
“We’ll let it play out and see how this all comes out in the courts,” Parson said at a press briefing before saying he would “most certainly” stand by his July pledge to pardon Mark and Patricia McCloskey.
The McCloskeys, who were already charged with unlawful use of a weapon, were indicted for evidence tampering by a grand jury Tuesday.“They broke down our gate, they trespassed on our property. Not a single one of those people are now charged with anything,” Mark McCloskey said after the hearing. “We’re charged with felonies that could cost us four years of our lives and our law license.”
AP News covered the story too:
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said Wednesday he “most certainly would” pardon a St. Louis couple if they are convicted of gun charges after waving guns at protesters walking in front of their home this summer.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey were indicted Tuesday on charges of unlawful use of a weapon and tampering with evidence arising from their confrontation with the demonstrators in their private neighborhood.
Parson had said earlier that he would pardon the couple and he repeated that pledge during a news conference Wednesday.
“We’ll let it play out and see how this all comes out in the courts, but I stand by what I said,” he said.
Do you stand by with the governor of Missouri for possibly pardoning the McCloskeys?
