Democrats have become more forceful in their efforts to curtail gun rights.
Lawmakers around the country have attempted to pass unconstitutional gun control measures.
But one radical gun-grabbing prosecutor just got a rude awakening.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa radicals have wreaked havoc across the nation for months with impunity in many jurisdictions.
During a protest in suburban St. Louis, rioters stormed the gates of a private community on their way to the mayor’s home.
As rioters breached the community, residents Mark and Patricia McCloskey – who have become the face of opposition to the left’s mob-rule tactics – stood outside with legal firearms to deter rioters from trespassing and hectoring residents in their neighborhood.
Soon after the incident, the McCloskeys were basically branded as domestic terrorists by the so-called mainstream media for brandishing guns on their own property while a belligerent mob marched upon their home.
Worse yet, local prosecutor Kim Gardner threw the book at the couple while the trespassers got to walk.
Now a circuit court judge has blocked Gardner from prosecuting the McCloskeys.
Judge Thomas Clark stated that Gardner had “initiated a criminal prosecution for political purposes” based on fundraising emails she distributed.
Judge Clark continued:
“Like a needle pulling thread, she links the defendant and his conduct to her critics…These emails are tailored to use the June 28 incident to solicit money by positioning her against defendant and her more vocal critics.”
Garner’s office was accused of pressuring the crime lab to repair the inoperable gun Patricia McCloskey had wielded in order to charge her with a felony.
“This is a high-profile case, receiving extensive media coverage, eliminating any possibility that any assistant circuit attorney is unaware of Ms. Gardner’s incipient interest, initial involvement and advocacy on this matter,” Judge Clark stated.
Clark’s ruling means nobody else in Gardner’s office can go after the McCloskeys either.
But while this is good news for gun owners, the fact the case got this far is a troubling sign.
Officers seized the McCloskeys’ guns at the behest of Gardner in the first place, so the state already has the authority to take firearms under the flimsiest of circumstances.
Soros has also backed Chesa Boudin in San Francisco, George Gascón (who lost to Boudin) in Los Angeles, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, Rachael Rollins in Boston and others.
Unsurprisingly, crime has spiked in these jurisdictions where Soros has helped install these activist DAs.
All of these DAs have committed to reducing prison populations, but their method largely involves not prosecuting crimes.
More criminals on the street has led to an increase in crime.
Philadelphia’s murder rate, for example, is the highest it’s been in a decade.
