A Missouri official is asking the state Supreme Court to suspend the law licenses of the St. Louis couple who waved their guns at racial justice protesters in June 2020.
Missouri Chief Disciplinary Counsel Alan Pratzel, in a court filing, pointed to the McCloskeys’ guilty pleas to misdemeanors connected to last year’s incident in his argument to suspend their law licenses, according to KCUR-FM.
The article goes on to state the following:
Mark and Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges that stemmed from the June 2020 incident. Mark McCloskey — who is running for U.S. Senate — pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault and was ordered to pay a $750 fine, and Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to second-degree harassment and was subject to a $2,000 fine.
The couple, both lawyers, made headlines last year when a group of Black Lives Matter protesters broke through a gate and marked through the streets of the private community.
Feeling threatened, the McCloskeys stood outside their home with their guns, but never fired at anyone.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) pardoned the couple last month for the incident.
Mark McCloskey pleaded guilty on June 17 to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was ordered to pay a fine of $750. Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty on the same date to misdemeanor harassment, with a $2,000 fine.

On his Twitter account, McCloskey frequently speaks out on various issues, including the Biden administration.
Last week, he tweeted, “The Left can attack me all they want; Missourians like myself are used to being demonized for having our principled conservative values.”

In another tweet, he quipped, “If the Left wants to terminate a pregnancy at eight months, can we please terminate a presidency?”
