On Thursday, as part of a plea agreement, Mark McCloskey just entered guilty pleas to numerous misdemeanors to the gun-waving incident last year and had to pay thousands of dollars in fines and having to give up the gun he had brandished at peaceful racial justice protesters. On Saturday, he tweeted pictures of himself holding the new AR that he had just purchased:

But wait, there's more. There's always more.

After entering the guilty pleas, he stood on the courthouse steps and tried to turn it into a campaign stunt in his race for US Senate:

As the Post-Dispatch’s Joel Currier reported Thursday, Mark McCloskey was anything but contrite after the plea. “The prosecutor dropped every charge except for alleging that I purposely placed other people in imminent risk of physical injury, right, and I sure as heck did,” McCloskey said on the courthouse steps. “That’s what the guns were there for and I’d do it again any time the mob approaches me. … If that’s a crime in Missouri, by God I did it, and I’d do it again.” .................................

The article does not mention whether or not he can purchase new guns.

1. He's playing to the basket of deplorables. Not the biggest voter block these days.

2. "Despite" court order? As is pointed out in the later tweet, he's not prohibited from buying more

guns.

4. What's the point of taking away someone's AR-15 when they can immediately buy another?

5. He wasn't convicted of a felony. As for his previous rifle, confiscating it was part of his plea

deal. Symbolism, perhaps?

6. I wonder if Parson is going to pardon him.

He said he would back when Kim Gardner said she was going to charge him, before she got disqualified.

9. McCloskey is still stupid

McCloskey goes and buys a replacement AR15, after having to give up by judicial order, the one he used against marchers on his street. There is nothing stopping him from doing that. What it does do, is show him prominently thumbing his nose at a judicial order. For someone who still has a judicial sanction review over his actions, I would call him pretty stupid to jeopardize his ability to practice law for a photo op. Talk about someone shooting themselves in the foot.

10. *LOCKING*

Host consensus is this OP doesn't meet the criteria in the SOP for this forum:

Important news of national interest only.
