Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) announced Tuesday that he pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple that gained national attention after pointing guns at protesters on June 28, 2020.
On July 19, 2020, Breitbart News reported Gov. Parson pledged to pardon the McCloskeys if they were prosecuted for their actions.
The Hill noted Parson saying he believed the McCloskeys “did what they legally should do.”
Parson added, “A mob does not have the right to charge your property. They had every right to protect themselves.”
