By The Federalist. Police reportedly executed a search warrant Friday evening, seizing a gun from the St. Louis couple who defended their home against a mob in late June.
Sources told 5 on Your Side, an NBC News affiliate, that police seized the rifle seen in footage of the central west end duo, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, both personal injury attorneys. The couple told police that the pistol brandished by Mrs. McCloskey was in their lawyer’s possession.
When a mob of people stormed through the McCloskey’s neighborhood early last week, in what the media described as a protest en route to the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, the pair wielded firearms in front of their private residence to defend themselves and deter rioters.

Others have noted that amid rampant lawlessness, efforts to defund police departments, and an absence of strong local and state leadership, the Second Amendment empowers private citizens to protect their lives and their property.

The couple, who are personal injury lawyers, were caught on video brandishing guns as demonstrators walked past their Renaissance palazzo-style home on June 28 while headed to protest outside of the mayor’s home nearby.
Authorities executed a search warrant Friday evening and the long-barreled gun Mark McCloskey, 61, was holding in the video was seized. ‘They took my AR. I’m absolutely surprised by this’, McCloskey said. (Read more from “St. Louis Couple Receive 50 Offers to Replace the AR-15 Seized by Cops” HERE)
