AP: Missouri governor pardons gun-waving St. Louis lawyer couple
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson announced Tuesday that he made good on his promise to pardon a couple who gained notoriety for pointing guns at social justice demonstrators as they marched past the couple’s home.
The McCloskeys’ lawyer speaking on behalf of his clients said, “He believes that the pardon vindicates that conduct.”
