Supreme Court Rejects Appeal by St. Louis Couple Who Pointed Guns at Protesters

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from the St. Louis, Missouri, couple who could have their law licenses indefinitely suspended after pointing guns at protesters near their home in 2020, Axios reports.

Personal injury attorney Mark McCloskey, who is running as a Republican for U.S. Senate in Missouri, and his wife and fellow attorney, Patricia McCloskey, had their licenses suspended indefinitely by the state Supreme Court last February after they pleaded guilty the year before to one count of fourth-degree assault. However, the court stayed those suspensions and put the McCloskeys on probation for a year. They later received a pardon from Missouri Gov. Mike Parson.

The couple filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that the state Supreme Court’s ruling violated their Second Amendment rights. They claimed that they were "exercising lawful rights to bear arms in defense of their person, family, and home."

The McCloskeys have not publicly commented on the Supreme Court’s decision as of early Monday afternoon.
