Couple That Pointed Guns at BLM Protesters Seen Outside Rittenhouse Trial

In Summary

A Missouri couple that pointed guns at protesters last summer were discovered at the Rittenhouse trial.  

Mark and Patricia McCloskey were seen outside the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial. According to Fox2Now, Mark McCloskey is an attorney who is running for the U.S. Senate. McCloskey says their presence was just to support.  

“I’m Mark McCloskey from St. Louis. We are just here to support people’s Second Amendment rights and defend themselves, especially when the government abdicates that duty and fails to protect its citizens,” he said. 

Last summer the couple went viral when a video surfaced, showing the couple pointing an AR-15 style rifle at demonstrators. In 2020, he made remarks at the Republican National Convention.

If Rittenhouse is indicted for fatally shooting two men with an AR-style semi-automatic rifle, he will face life in prison. His lawyer Mark Richards said that Rittenhouse was stormed by a “crazy person” and was worried they would force away his gun to use it on him.  

“This is the provocation. This is what starts this incident,” prosecutor Thomas Binger said. “You lose the right to self-defense when you’re the one who brought the gun, when you are the one creating the danger, when you’re the one provoking other people.”
