Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who waved firearms at Black Lives Matter protesters streaming passed their mansion last year have now pled guilty to misdemeanor charges and had to forfeit their guns to avoid prison time.

As reported in numerous outlets, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who waved firearms at Black Lives Matter protesters streaming passed their mansion last year, have now pled guilty to misdemeanor charges. They must forfeit their guns as part of a deal that allows them to avoid prison time.

The McCloskeys—nicknamed Ken and Karen—also agreed to pay $2750 in fines. Mark, who is running for the U.S. Senate, pled guilty to fourth-degree assault, a Class C misdemeanor. His wife pled guilty to second-degree harassment, a Class A misdemeanor. They originally faced more serious charges.

Yet, the couple showed no remorse. “I’d do it again any time the mob approaches me. … In other words, I stood out on the porch with my rifle and made them back up. And that’s what I’d do again. If that’s a crime in Missouri, by God I did it, and I’d do it again,” Mark said on the courthouse steps.

Here is a video clip of their actions menacing peaceful protesters marching past their house:

The fact that they have been forced to give up their guns—the judge refused to let them donate them to charity to get a write off—should come as a relief to anyone familiar with weapons. Notice that Patricia McCloskey had her finger on the trigger of her pistol the entire time. This is unsafe gun handling and a big no-no in trigger discipline. Any trained law enforcement personnel would have deemed her as an imminent threat if they had been on the scene.

These two were transparently racist in their terror and terrorization of BLM protesters who had no interest in them whatsoever—well, until guns were being pointed at them.
