MO Couple Who Brandished Guns in Front of Protesters Now Being Investigated

The St. Louis couple who brandished an AR-15 and a silver handgun in front of protesters Sunday are now under investigation.

Breitbart News reported the couple was outside eating dinner when they heard hundreds of protesters approach.

The homeowner, Mark McCloskey, told KSDK he asked the protesters to leave because the neighborhood was private property:

Somebody forced the gate, and I stood up and announced that this is private property. Go back. I can’t remember in detail anymore. I went inside, I got a rifle. And when they … because as soon as I said this is private property, those words enraged the crowd. Horde, absolute horde came through the now smashed down gates coming right at the house. My house, my east patio was 40 feet from Portland Place Drive. And these people were right up in my face, scared to death. And then, I stood out there. The only thing we said is this is private property. Go back. Private property. Leave now.

He said the protesters allegedly became angry over his statements and he and his family were allegedly “threatened” by various protesters.

At that point he grabbed an AR-15 and his wife grabbed a pistol.

The New York Post reports McCloskey and his wife are now under investigation.

St. Louis Prosecutor Kimberly Gardner said, “I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protestors were met by guns.”

She added, “We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated,” she insisted, saying her office was “currently working with the public and police to investigate these events. Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable,”

Videos are all clipped. The first video showed protesters with guns. Now they stop the video before you see the thugs with guns.

They going to make an example out of this couple to try to intimidate those of us waiting to defend our home turf when this BLM clown show comes to our local neighborhoods.

I hope speaking up (and voting) is enough and I worry that if states / municipalities doesn't enforce law and order somebody else will and I fear that would get ugly fast

The St Louis couple are both personal injury lawyers and have hired a lawyer to represent them. These folks know what they are doing, know the law and their lawful rights, and have the economic means to mount an effective legal defense. I think they will have to spend some of their money but will not be prosecuted for anything in the end.

You are assuming that lawyers are intelligent. I know quite a few that are barely smart enough to suck air.

According to the Mike Ferguson show ,which is a local conservative radio show that dedicated todays episode to asking callers if this couple was right or wrong .This couples names are on the donor list of alot of left leaning politicians . Hopfuly tthis was an eye opener to what their donations have bought them .whether they learn or not im glad they were successful at protecting themselves .

I heard, this couple is far from the "gun totin' conservatives" the media would like you to believe. Like, they didn't even know how to properly hold a gun.

Hmmm... Almost sounds like this was all contrived to make people think twice about defending their property and lives.

A "protester" shot into a pickup trying to get through the crowded street today in Provo, Utah. The locals are predicting big trouble tonight.
