Hundreds of Black Lives Matter demonstrators returned to the St. Louis mansion of a gun-toting couple whose armed stand went viral last week — only this time the pair just watched from their balcony.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who confronted marchers with an automatic rifle and a handgun last week, kept their guns holstered Friday when the crowd returned, looking down on the protest along with their lawyer and private security standing by.
The article goes on to state the following:
Mark McCloskey, 63, said he grabbed his AR-15 on June 28 as protesters broke through a gate of their private road because he feared they were “storming the Bastille” and would burn down his home.
“They’re angry, they’re screaming,” Mark McCloskey said on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “They’ve got spittle coming out of their mouths. They’re coming towards our house. Out there with my wife, and I said, ‘Oh my God, we’re absolutely alone. There’s nobody here to protect us but us.”
Police said Monday that people in the crowd yelled threats at the couple and that the McCloskeys would not be charged.

On Friday, chanting protestors stopped at the gate just outside the McCloskeys’ home for about 15 minutes. The gate that closes the private street to non-residents and extra metal barriers blocked the entrance to Portland Place, where the protesters had walked earlier in the week on their way to the mayor’s home nearby.
Inside the gate, more than a dozen men in plain clothes walked the grounds and peered out from a second-floor balcony of the couple’s home. One protester briefly straddled an iron gate as if he was going to jump over, but did not. No one threw anything and no one behind the gates showed aggression. One man on the McCloskeys’ balcony clapped along with the chanting protesters.
The couple was seen peering out from their balcony while McCloskey’s wife appeared to be filming the marchers on her cellphone.
Demonstrators chanted and brandished placards outside the residence for around 15 minutes before moving on.
