Kim Gardner Confiscates McCloskey's AR-15 Login/Join

St. Louis authorities confiscated an AR-15 used by Mark McCloskey, who made headlines with his wife Patricia last month when they defended their historic mansion from protesters who had broken down a gate to trespass on their private road.

Police executed a search warrant Friday evening at the McCloskey's home, seizing the rifle used in the June 28 incident, according to KSDK. The couple said their attorney was in possession of the pistol Patricia McCloskey brandished during the confrontation. The raid comes two weeks after St. Louis circuit attorney Kimberly Gardner vowed to work with the St. Louis Police Department to conduct an investigation into the incident.

According to the report, there are no charges against the McCloskeys at this time, as the warrant was just for the guns.

And now they've been disarmed.

Joel Schwartz, the couple's lawyer, said a search warrant was served Friday evening and that the gun Mark McCloskey was holding in the video was seized. Schwartz told The Associated Press that arrangements have been made to turn over to authorities on Saturday the gun that Patricia McCloskey had been holding, adding that her gun was inoperable at the time of the protest and still is.

The couple has not been charged, and Schwartz said charges against them would be “absolutely, positively unmerited.”

“A search warrant being executed is clear indication of what the circuit attorney's intentions are. Beyond that, I can't comment,” Schwartz said.

If the McCloskeys are not charged with a crime, how can their private property be confiscated?

Yeah, I’m scratching my head on this one. Were there any laws violated? Was anyone arrested, and for wants purpose?

No? Than this is a load of crap and that bitch should be fired from her position and the State should be sued to high heaven.

I’m sick of all this BS political crap.

If this is an actual question, executing a search warrant does not require an arrest, or have any component there of. Police often execute search warrants and either charge at a later date, or sometimes not charge at all.

I’m sure your question was likely rhetorical, but that’s the answer.

This actually happens quite frequently when there is a search warrant executed, and search warrants are executed all the time. Of course, it depends on the possible crime they are investigating, but let's say a potential domestic violence incident is being investigated. Any guns in the home will often be confiscated and held until the matter is resolved.

I'm completely just guessing, but could be based on looking into whether to file an aggravated menacing charge. I'm not familiar with this state's specific laws, though.

St. Louis circuit attorney candidate defends accepting super PAC campaign money from liberal billionaire

https://www.stltoday.com/news/...1f-4084f1ec1485.html

UPDATED at noon Aug. 1 with information on a third large donation to candidate Kim Gardner from George Soros-backed 'super PAC.'

ST. LOUIS • Kimberly Gardner, one of four Democrats running for St. Louis circuit attorney in the Aug. 2 primary, is taking heat for a new political ad paid for with money from a national super PAC that is at least partly funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.

The new internet and cable TV ad was financed by a federally registered campaign committee from Washington called the Safety & Justice Committee. It was established in June and reported $30,000 in initial funds from Soros. No other contributors were listed as of its last public filing June 30.

Soros, a prominent backer of liberal causes, has supported Democrats in similar district attorney races around the country, including Chicago, Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana, according to published news reports.

I would hope they can afford some full time security. Off duty Saint Louis cops would be good.

Yes, it is real question and thanks for answering. But doesn't a search warrant have to be connected to a crime?

I'd like to see the warrant application to see how they justified any probable cause that a crime was committed.

If they get charged (and I think they will) and then get acquitted (which I also think they will), I hope they sue the pants off Gardner for malicious prosecution.

Come on now, everyone here knows the only reason this happened is because Kim Gardner is a fucking commie. Commies hate private gun ownership, and they will make up any excuses to grab your guns.
