Back in 2020 during the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, two people in Missouri made Nationwide attention after defending their home from people who literally broke into their neighborhood. I’m of course talking about Mark and Patricia McCloskey.

As I’m sure you remember after the thugs broke into their neighborhood both Mark and Patricia went outside with weapons prepared to defend their property.

Liberals didn’t like that of course and deemed it an act of aggression when in reality the exact opposite was true. They still had to get the matter settled before a judge and ultimately were vindicated thanks to a pardon from Missouri Governor Mike Parson.

However, the matter apparently isn’t over as both of the McCloskeys, who are licensed attorneys, have had their law licenses suspended and not only that but now they have been put on probation.

According to Epoch Times,

The Missouri Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended the law licenses of a Missouri couple convicted of misdemeanors for holding guns outside their St. Louis home in 2020, when a group of protesters, including BLM activists, demonstrated in their gated community.

At the same time, the court stayed the suspension, subject to a year of probation during which the two attorneys–who have become folk heroes among conservatives–must “not engage in conduct that violates the Rules of Professional Conduct.”

For defending their home, Mark and Patricia McCloskey were honored speakers at the 2020 Republican National Convention. Mark McCloskey is currently running for a U.S. Senate seat as a Republican.

Although the McCloskeys, who were pardoned after conviction by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, argued they were justified in holding firearms outside their home to dissuade the crowd, which they said meant them harm, local prosecutors disagreed.

To be honest I don’t really understand how this can be done if they’ve been pardoned already. But maybe there’s just something I don’t understand.
