Their names are Mark and Patricia McCloskey, but you probably know them better as “The Gun Pointing Couple.”
The pair gained instant fame on June 28, 2020, after pointing weapons at Black Lives Matter Protestors that were marching in front of their house.
Mark McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and Patricia pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment. That’s right, assault without hurting one and harassment for standing on your own property.
The couple were forced to turn over the guns they were holding in the photo to the government.
When Missouri Governor Mike Parson, a republican, heard the news, he immediately announced what he would do: Pardon them.
That’s right, Governor Parson believes the McCloskeys “Did what they legally should do. A mob does not have the right to charge your property. They had every right to protect themselves.”
