Mark and Patricia McCloskey were recently pardoned by the governor of Missouri (see below) after a long ordeal over brandishing weapons when a crowd of protesters trespassed on their property. The incident was national news because of the shocking photos of the McCloskeys armed trying to protect their home. The couple went through a huge ordeal to clear their name and were finally pardoned.
One of the protesters in the group that showed up at the McCloskey home happened to be Rep. Cori Bush. She recently threatened the McCloskeys after the pardon by the governor.
“He has spat on my name. And because of that, his day will come.”

Mark McCloskey didn’t take her threats and spoke out to Fox News to say that the “squad” can’t intimidate him.
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE RECENT PARDON OF MARK AND PATRICIA MCCLOSKEY:
Who can forget the scene at a beautiful home in St. Louis where a mob converged on Mark and Patricia McCloskey. The images of the McCloskeys pointing their guns at the crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters were stunning.
The crowd happened to be on their way to the St. Louis mayor’s home to protest when they trespassed on Mark and Patricia McCloskey’s property. The McCloskeys were having dinner on their patio in the back of the house when they heard the crowd. They saw people walking up a private path on their property and rushed to get their guns.
Mark McCloskey said at the time that the only way the crowd didn’t come closer was because of the rifle he was holding.
The harassment began after that night when BLM thugs began to taunt the McCloskeys by showing up outside their home. Things got so bad that they boarded up the windows to their home:
Great news! The Associated Press is reporting that after a long ordeal, the McCloskeys were just pardoned by Missouri Governor Mike Parson.
After the pardon, Mark McCloskey said he has no regrets about what he did:
“I’d do it again. Any time the mob approaches me, I’ll do what I can to put them in imminent threat of physical injury because that’s what kept them from destroying my house and my family.”
Mark McCloskey recently announced that he’s running for a U.S. Senate seat in Missouri.
