Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who are both lawyers, were filmed brandishing weapons as demonstrators marched along their private Missouri street in June.
They gained national prominence after the clip was widely shared, and were later charged over the incident.
The couple said they armed themselves because they felt threatened.
On Monday, their lawyer told the New York Times that Mark McCloskey would "definitely be speaking" at the Republican National Convention (RNC).
The scaled-down event is due to take place between 24 and 27 August in Charlotte, North Carolina.
But Patricia McCloskey is not expected to speak. "She will be at her husband's side," the lawyer, Albert Watkins, said.

LOL, I don't normally watch conventions, but I may tune in a bit next week to see the atrocity the GOP "virtual" convention" undoubtedly will be, as they renominate their orange God.
The fact that they have this couple speaking (or just the husband?)...man oh man the Biden campaign and Anti Trump Republicans are going to have a field day with this.
