Couple Who Aimed Guns at BLM Protestors Facing Law License Suspension
In SummaryThe McCloskey couple could possibly lose their gun licenses for pointing their firearms at BLM protestors last summer.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey could possibly lose their gun licenses after pointing their guns at Black Lives Matter protestors last summer.
Last June, a video surfaced the internet which showed the McCloskeys standing in front of their home while protestors stood their ground in solidarity against the murder of George Floyd.
Mark McCloskey plead guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault with a $750 fine. His wife pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment with a $2,000 fine. Following the incident, the two were a guest of honor for the 2020 Republican National Convention rather than being charged for unlawful use of firearm.
“I’d do it again,” McCloskey stated. “Anytime 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.”
