St. Louis couple who brandished weapons at protesters charged

The St. Louis couple who made national news for brandishing firearms at protesters who were approaching their house have been charged.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey on Monday, including unlawful use of a weapon/flourishing, according to KSDK, local NBC affiliate. The weapons charge is a class D felony, and they are facing anywhere from one to four years in prison and fines up to $5,000 if convicted.

The McCloskeys drew their weapons on June 28 outside their home as protesters marched through their gated neighborhood, demanding the resignation of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson. They have defended themselves and claimed the protesters were threatening to kill them and take over their property.

“That couple had every right to protect their property. They had the ability to do that as private citizens, like everyone else. What they should not go through is a prosecutor attempting to take their constitutional rights away by filing charges against them for protecting their property,” Gov. Mike Parson said days before the charges were filed.

The governor also teased pardoning the couple over the weekend, saying, "I don't think they're going to spend any time in jail."

Al Watkins, the attorney for the McCloskey's, transferred one of their firearms to the police. Authorities reportedly wanted the gun in their possession to be sure that it wasn't operable.

President Trump has also weighed in on the case, calling the treatment of the McCloskeys a "disgrace."

Ubelievable.  Arrested for protecting their property.  This case is going to determine what happens across this country if they are convicted.  It would mean that anyone defending themselves against the "noise" that is going on will be punished and the thugs will be free to do as they please.

Pure idiocy, but what do we expect of a Soros-funded prosecutor?
The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened. --Norman Thomas, six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President.

They already are. Soros is doing his Fourth Reich thing.
Jews, when they were fighting Nazi rape/abduction/murder were portrayed as insurgents/terrorists in the press.

Once the press is dominated and controlled by politicians, up becomes down, black is white, and all 'White People' become Jews.

Including all the White People funding, controlling, and pushing the BLM agenda. We are currently reliving 1930 Germany which is exactly what Soros wants. He is at home in Nazi Germany.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

The press is already dominated and controlled by the leftists (politicians as well). Right now Carlson and Hannity on Fox are being accused of sexual harassment.  Once those two are forced out, it's game over.

Well, the governor of Missouri went on the record in the past day or so, saying that he would pardon the McCloskeys if Gardner charged them.

Well... ok sir... she made her move, now it's time to make YOURS.

Pardon them NOW, before this goes one step further.
No trial, no nuthin'.

Your use of the pardon NOW will demonstrate to Mrs. Gardner and her ilk that such leftist politically/racially-motivated actions will not be tolerated under your administration (nor any subsequent Republican governorship).

And make sure you give sufficient support to the Second Amendment while doing it...!

They meant to say 'brandishing'.
But since our media outlets have been taken over by 8th grade high school dropouts...nothing means nothing anymore if you read it in media or hear it on TV. Any time I hear some 'BREAKING NEWS' the very first thing I always think is, "I wonder if that is actually true?" Everything is just bullshit these days. I am a mushroom.

Actually, she needs to be criminally charged by the state AG for unlawfully violating their rights.

That could go Federal, really, depriving someone of their rights under color of law.

State level is the first stop.

There needs to be serious consequences for her actions.

It is better if she gets smacked down by the state government.

It needs to go up the chain. If the state drops the ball then the feds should jump in.

Is there a state statute that can be brought to bear?

Worse - Their property was taken away from them when their guns were confiscated.

There are goons waiting to take them out of their house for daring to defy them, and now they have no way to protect themselves.

This is justice St. Louis style?

What's next?  Take away their home, the stage they used to commit their crime?

I'm sure there are provisions in RICO to do that.  Instead they'll do it old school and run up the legal expenses sky high until they're bankrupted.

They have the right to bear arms.  I am surprised.  If a mob like that was at my door believe me I would have a gun.  What are you supposed to do?  Let them destroy your home?  Maybe even assault you?

Pointing the muzzles at the protestors is probably the problem here.  That was really sloppy gun safety, as I had learnt from the NRA classes of my yute.  Don't even get me started on her lack of trigger finger discipline.
