You know the McCloskeys, don’t you? They’re the couple who went viral last year during the “Summer of Love” after they defended their property from the thugs who broke into their gated community.

The corrupt prosecutor ended up filing criminal charges against them and they ended up going through hell all for the sake of exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Here’s a reminder in case you’ve forgotten.

After dealing with the drama from liberal attorneys in Georgia, the McCloskeys’ problems with the incident that occurred last year looks like it’s finally over.

I find it absolutely ridiculous and hilarious when I hear the commentator in the above video say that these were peaceful protesters.

They actually broke down the gate leading into the community because they didn’t have access themselves. Is this what they mean by peaceful? Maybe I’m wrong, but this doesn’t scream peaceful to me.

Thankfully, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey this week.

Parson, a Republican, on Friday pardoned Mark McCloskey, who pleaded guilty in June to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined $750, and Patricia McCloskey, who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was fined $2,000.

“Mark McCloskey has publicly stated that if he were involved in the same situation, he would have the exact same conduct,” the McCloskeys’ lawyer Joel Schwartz said Tuesday. “He believes that the pardon vindicates that conduct.”

The special prosecutor, Richard Callahan said, “There was no evidence that any of them had a weapon and no one I interviewed realized they had ventured onto a private enclave.”

Here’s the thing, it doesn’t matter if they had one or not. It’s not the job of the McCloskeys to pat down everyone to see if any of them have weapons before pulling theirs out.

This group of thugs knocked down the entrance to a private and gated community which is an act of aggression. It is well within their rights to draw weapons to keep these thugs at bay.
