That Gun-Toting St. Louis Lawyer Is Now Considering A Run For Senate–Because Of Course He Is

@xshularx/Twitter

Mark McCloskey, the St. Louis lawyer who became infamous online after brandishing an assault weapon at passing protesters during the summer, is back in the news after announcing he's considering a run for Senate.

Embraced by the Republican party as a hero, McCloskey was invited to speak during the Republican Convention.

During an interview on Tuesday, April 20, McClosky confirmed his thoughts, saying:

"I can confirm that it's a consideration, yes."





Twitter was pretty terrified by the idea of a Senator McCloskey.




After their gun-wielding incident, the McCloskeys became minor conservative celebrities.



McCloskey also recently spoke at a Missouri Republican donor event alongside two politicians gunning for the state's opening Senate seat, Governor Eric Greitens and Attorney General Eric Schmitt.

It's unclear whether the blessing of former President Donald Trump will be enough to turn the personal injury lawyer into a Senator.


If one is looking to become a politician, it seems all it takes to become a viable candidate in the Republican party is the willingness to openly threaten unarmed protesters.

The city of St. Louis, Missouri filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for unlawful use of a weapon—a class E felony, with a possible maximum sentence of four years in prison and a fine of $10,000.
