Missouri Governor Mike Parson Defends McCloskey’s Rights to Self-Defense, Property Rights
Missouri Governor Mike Parson defended Mark and Patricia McCloskey during a press conference last week, stating that the Saint Louis couple that defended their home from a mob of trespassing and threatening Black Lives Matter rioters had every right to do so.
“That couple had every right to protect their property,” said Governor Parson of the incident. “They have the ability to do that as private citizens like everyone else.”
Soros-funded Saint Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner is currently investigating the McCloskeys for the actions, having granted a search warrant that resulted in the seizure of the McCloskey family AR-15 rifle.
The McCloskeys have been widely praised by pro-Second Amendment advocates and attacked by Black Lives Matter supporters for their actions during a standoff last month that occurred on their property. Black Lives Matter rioters had broken into the private community on which the McCloskey home is situated, and threatened the couple by waving loaded pistol magazines. The McCloskeys went on to step outside holding a rifle and a pistol, peacefully urging the rioters to move away from the premises.
Governor Parson also confirmed that he had spoken to President Donald Trump about the ongoing legal ramifications the McCloskeys are facing for no more than standing on their own property while armed.
The Republican Governor also predicted that the McCloskeys would be pardoned by President Trump if Saint Louis’ Soros-funded prosecutor succeeded in securing a doubtful conviction in the case.
“[Trump] understands the situation in Missouri,” Parson said. “He understands the situation in St. Louis and how out of control it is for a prosecutor to let violent criminals off and not do their job and try to attack law-abiding citizens. The conversation I had with the President, said that he would do everything he could within his powers to help with this situation and that he would be taking action to do that.“
