Dems Might Challenge Rule Allowing Lawmakers to Have Guns at Capitol

For five decades, members of Congress have been allowed to have firearms in the Capitol—but that law might be changed if murmurs between California Democrats come to fruition. Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said his objective has the support of likely incoming House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Indeed, her spokesperson has said Pelosi vows to “revisit” the law.

Although a Republican counterpart—Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky—says the move is just evidence that the liberals are trying to “solve a problem that doesn’t exist,” the effort could be a harbinger of things to come as the anti-gunners ramp up efforts to force more gun control down our throats.

Massie has a point. When was the last time you heard about a congressional representative going through the halls of the Capitol waving a gun. Huffman was even hard-pressed to name any colleagues who have guns in their offices.

We can only surmise that if the gun control folks start by limiting the rules on congressmen, it will give them more motivation to go after the rights of ordinary citizens because, after all, we can’t have more rights than the people in charge.
