St. Louis Cops Seize Gun That Couple Pointed At Black Lives Matter Protesters


St. Louis Cops Seize Gun That Couple Pointed At Black Lives Matter Protesters
“They took my AR,” Mark McCloskey told a right-wing radio program.

<snip>

“We complied with the search warrant. They took my AR,” Mark McCloskey told the conservative Todd Starnes radio show. “I’m absolutely surprised by this.”

<snip>

Mark McCloskey claimed he and his wife grabbed their guns during the protest because they were afraid for their lives from the “angry mob who came through my gate.” His wife insisted in a Fox News interview that she heard protesters talk about how they wanted to take over their home, kill her and her husband, and their dog.

But video of the protest that went viral shows protesters slowly sauntering past the couple on the sidewalk and not confronting them.

<snip>

They have sued neighbors for making changes to their gravel road, sued a former employer for wrongful termination, sued others for defamation, and asserted “squatters’ rights” on common neighborhood property, according to the newspaper. This was apparently part of the land they claimed to be guarding with their firearms. McCloskey said in an affidavit last year that he had once challenged a neighbor cutting through that property “at gunpoint.”

2. Sweet!

Watta concept.
Abuse the right, lose the right. Especially since it was an AR!

Fucking. Moron.

3. That might actually be a painful punishment.

These clowns live in mortal terror that their guns will be confiscated. The NRA's ghoulish slogan makes it clear that death is preferable.

Me? I'm cool if someone does both to them...

Maybe a presidential freedom of honor medal?

11. They need to confiscate her pistol, too.



She was doubly reckless by pointing her pistol at people with her finger on the trigger.

12. That couple didn't even know how to hold their firearms.

That was (one of the) ridiculous things about that incident. Neither seemed at all familiar with their firearms or with the rules of firearm safety.

14. I'm getting REAL tired of the 'I feared for my life' crap.

If you fear for your life, stay inside, lock the door and call the authorities.

Do NOT go outside and ask for trouble.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

15. Me. too. Damned tired of it. If I'm afraid of you and a hundred of your closest friends, ...

me and the wife standing out front of the house in an agitated state with a small automatic and an AR-15 would not be my first inclination.

20. Neither know anything about holding a firearm.

They were both reckless, especially the woman.

She was flinging it here and there with her finger on the trigger. It's a wonder the damn thing didn't go off and hit an innocent person, or into a neighbor's house.

Then where would she be? Scared inside a jailcell?

Her husband wasn't too careful with his big gun either.

Irresponsible, stupid and self-entitled. Real shitheads. They'll be honored guests at the next Trump hate rally.

21. Police would not have executed a search warrant without charges pending.

Looks like justice might actually get served.
