Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the viral gun toting couple in St. Louis who defended their home as BLM protesters marched by will appear at the Republican National Convention next week where they will endorse President Trump.
The gun-brandishing McCloskeys will be part of the RNC, as first reported by @jdawsey1.
“They, like many Americans, are horrified, if not mortified, at the prospect of their constitutional rights being compromised by the constitutional rights of others."https://t.co/86zOQrGDPb

The two have already appeared at a Trump virtual campaign event.
The McCloskeys have become celebrities and heroic figures for second amendment activists.
While the protesters who marched by had broken through a gate and were trespassing while marching in a gated community, the couple was charged with felonies for unlawful use of weapons by circuit attorney Kim Gardner.
Republicans including Missouri Governor Mike Parson have come to the defense of the couple and the President himself has tweeted support for them.
