The white St. Louis couple who waved guns in the air like they just didn’t care at Black Lives Matter protesters marching after the cop killing of George Floyd, now get a new lease on life.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the infamous couple who went viral for trying to scare BLM protesters with their assault weapons, were granted an expungement after the 2021 guilty plea to misdemeanor assault, the Post-Dispatch reports.

An expungement wipes their record clean.

The McCloskeys are also attorneys and filed the request back in January, asking a judge for relief and they want their guns back — an AR-15-style rifle and a semi-automatic pistol.

“It’s time for the city to cough up my guns,” Mike told the outlet.

On Wednesday, Judge Joseph P. Whyte granted the gun-toting couple the expungement, against the recommendation of City prosecutors and the police. And the Republican governor Mike Parson took it a step further and pardoned them

If you recall, the infamous couple pointed weapons at people during a peaceful protest in Minneapolis following the death of Floyd at the hands of cop Derek Chauvin.

So they get to wipe their hands clean like it never happened? Sounds about white!
