Lawyer Mark McCloskey posted photos of himself holding a rifle, shortly after he vowed to replace the weapons he had surrendered to authorities. 

"Checking out my new AR!" McCloskey tweeted on Saturday, along with photos of himself holding a gun.

McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined, while his wife Patricia pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was also fined, in connection with wielding firearms last year as protestors passed their home.  But while the man and his wife agreed to give up the guns they utilized during the episode as part of the plea agreement, Mark McCloskey has said that he plans to procure another AR-15 as soon as possible.

McCloskey, who is running to serve as a U.S. senator from Missouri, told Newsmax that he would purchase another AR-15 when the court clears his record and he is no longer under indictment.
