The St. Louis couple who were seen holding firearms as Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists approached their home pleaded guilty to several misdemeanor charges and surrendered their guns.
Will Surrender Guns
Mark McCloskey, a lawyer, pleaded guilty to a Class C misdemeanor of fourth-degree assault, while his wife, Patricia McCloskey, pleaded guilty to a Class A misdemeanor of second-degree harassment. They will pay the maximum fines of $2,000 and $750, and they won’t serve any jail time.
More notably, however, the two will be forced to forfeit the weapons they were holding when they confronted BLM protesters who were marching near their home last summer.
DAWG SAYS: THEY CALL IT A VICTORY AFTER ALL THE BLUSTERING THEY DID ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS, AND ALSO GIVING UP THE GUNS THEY HAD.
MAYBE THEY WERE NOT SO RIGHT AFTER ALL.
