(Jul. 13, 2020) — On Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” a Missouri homeowner who armed himself and met “protesters” who passed through an iron gate to enter his private drive said he expects to be “indicted” very soon.

Shortly after 8:00 p.m. EDT, Mark McCloskey told host Tucker Carlson that his attorney advised against his appearance on the show because of what is expected to be an imminent indictment.

On June 28, McCloskey and wife, Patricia, who live in the upscale section of St. Louis and are personal-injury lawyers, held up firearms when the group of peopl filed past their home on their way to the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson approximately a block away.  Patricia held up a handgun, while McCloskey held a rifle.

According to the St. Louis Times-Dispatch, the iron gate “is chained in place, and locked” and marked with a sign stating, “PRIVATE STREET — Access Limited to Residents.”  The McCloskeys claimed that two of the protesters “destroyed” the gate to enter their street.

Those making their way to the mayor’s home are reportedly members of “Black Lives Matter.”

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner said she was “alarmed” at the McCloskeys’ response to those exercising their “First Amendment rights” that evening and launched an investigation.  According to the Associated Press on Sunday, the McCloskeys’ home was searched on Friday evening, about which Carlson queried McCloskey. It has been widely reported that McCloskey’s rifle was confiscated during the execution of the search warrant.

Gardner contends on her official website that “Justice, public safety, crime and violence reduction are PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUES.”  Her website “message” states, in part, “You deserve to live, work and play in a safe city that respects the rights of all people. As the Circuit Attorney for St. Louis City, I take my responsibility as a prosecutor and law enforcement leader very seriously.”

According to the St. Louis Times-Dispatch on Saturday, Patricia McCloskey’s handgun was surrendered to police.

Responding to Carlson, McCloskey said the police officers who carried out the search were professional and respectful.

Some believe the media has attempted to demonize the McCloskeys rather than focus on the issue of their Second Amendment right.  For his part, Carlson termed Gardner and like-minded St. Louis officials “political hacks.”

  1. Did Mark McCloskey receive his legal education on laws in accordance with the US Constitution or laws in accordance with the Magna Carta?

    I contend that Mark McCloskey is sleeping with the enemies of the US Constitution.

  2. Bob R,

    We are, and think, as one in the same. :)

    When John Kerry proffered himself a bemedaled Vietnam War hero, I became an active member of the Vietnam Veterans AGAINST John Kerry —
    Because I am a Patriot and a Vietnam Veteran.

    When Obama barricaded the WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Lincoln memorials in DC, I helped remove them —
    Because I am a Patriot, a Vietnam Veteran and the son of a Patriot and WWII, Korea and Vietnam Veteran.

    Come now the Anarchists (ANTIFA), Marxists (BLM) and National Socialists (Democrat Party) hell bent on destroying our beloved America, and I will not be silent —
    Because, to quote President Reagan, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

    God Bless You, Sir.
    God Bless Our Troops
    God Bless Our Veterans
    God Keep Our Fallen Heroes
    And God Bless the United States of America

  3. James Carter, exactly why I refuse to be silent. I am not going to wait until they come for me and have no one left to speak out, except I am a Christian, a patriot, and a veteran so I won’t be anywhere near the end of their list. Thanks for your input.

  4. We the People are being victimized twice, once by Marxist terrorists and again by political hacks who side with Marxists and care nothing for our safety or rights and the leftist media is doing all they can to help subjugate us.

  5. First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
