A gun-wielding couple from the United States has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges.
A St. Louis couple has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts after pointing weapons at social justice demonstrators last year.
Patricia McCloskey was fined 2,000 dollars after pleading guilty to misdemeanor harassment. Mark McCloskey, her husband, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault and was fined 750 dollars.
The couple also decided to hand over both firearms they used in June of last year when they were challenged by several hundred demonstrators demonstrating in front of their home.
The McCloskeys emerged from their home, brandishing firearms towards the protestors. The demonstrators, they alleged, were trespassing.
Mark McCloskey launched his candidacy for the US Senate seat in Missouri in May.
