Missouri Governor Mike Parson (R) said he would pardon Mark and Patricia McCloskey if indicted for pointing firearms at protesters who intruded into their property. Gov. Parson was responding to a question during an interview on "The Marc Cox Morning Show."
"Right now, that’s what I feel," he said. "You don’t know until you hear all the facts. But right now, if this is all about going after them for doing a lawful act, then yeah, if that scenario ever happened, I don’t think they’re going to spend any time in jail."
The couple has received widespread support from politicians, gun-related businesses, and gun rights activists. For example, over 50 offers were made by gun retailers to replace the couple’s AR-15 after confiscation by the authority.
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves said that property rights still exist in the United States and that the owners have the right to defend them. Additionally, 12 GOP legislators wrote to Attorney General, Bill Barr, urging him to protect the couple and the Second Amendment from mob rule. Earlier, Parson said Trump “understands the situation in Missouri" and would do anything in his power to defend the couple
“He understands the situation in St. Louis and how out of control it is to let violent criminals off and not do their job and try to attack law-abiding citizens,” Parson said.
The highly publicized incident caught everyone by surprise, including Mr. McCluskey, who did not anticipate the involvement of his wife in the confrontation.
"I was always surprised to see her out there facing off the welfare crowd," the husband said. "I grabbed my rifle, and I was standing up on the porch, and all of a sudden, I see her in the front yard with our pistol in her hand. What a woman."
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
