Mark McCloskey Explains Guilty Plea: ‘By God, I Did It. That’s What the Guns Were For’ by Jack Phillips
The prosecutor, Mark said, “dropped all the felony charges, all the gun charges, and charged me with a crime that said I purposely placed other people in apprehension of imminent fear of physical injury.”
“And, by God, I did it,” McCloskey told Newsmax on Thursday. “That’s what the Second Amendment was there for … and I couldn’t say no to that one,” he added.
And regarding the now-viral incident, “As I said on the courthouse steps, if that’s a crime in Missouri, I did it, and I’ll do it again,” McCloskey said, noting that he will pay what he described as a “parking ticket, a $750 fine, and that’s it.”
“God came knocking on our door disguised as an angry mob, and it transformed us,” McCloskey added in the Thursday interview. “Patty and I decided to just put the rest of our lives on hold and do what we can to save this great nation.”
He continued: “Our liberties are being stripped from us so quickly, and the country is deteriorating so fast, we just said, ‘We don’t care what it takes, we’re going to put everything else on hold, and do what we can to restore the America that we knew when we were kids.'”
