St. Louis Officials Now Going After McCloskeys’ Law Licenses

'That’s what the guns were there for and I’d do it again any time the mob approaches me...'

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who brandished firearms to confront a group of marauders who parade past their home in a private community last summer, now face the threat of losing their law licenses.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parsons pardoned the McCloskeys of all charges after a judge kicked George Soros-funded prosecutor Kim Gardner and her staff off the case for initiating “a criminal prosecution for political purposes.”

But the city’s officials are still going after the McCloskeys.

This week, Missouri Chief Disciplinary Counsel Alan Pratzel filed a motion with the Missouri Supreme Court to suspend the McCloskeys’ law licenses, citing the couple’s decision to plead guilty to the original misdemeanor charges brought against them by Gardner.

Their guilty plea warrants discipline because they showed “indifference to public safety” and involved “moral turpitude” by confronting the protesters outside their home, Pratzel claimed, according to KCUR-FM.

Pratzel also cited recent comments made by Mark McCloskey, in which he said he was unapologetic for what happened last summer.

“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. “That’s what the guns were there for and I’d do it again any time the mob approaches me, I’ll do what I can to place them in imminent threat of physical injury because that’s what kept them from destroying my house and my family.”

Mark McCloskey is running for the U.S. Senate to replace Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., who plans to retire in 2022.
