    House Democrats could revoke rule allowing lawmakers to have guns on Capitol grounds

    House Democrats could revoke rule allowing lawmakers to have guns on Capitol grounds

    Democrats could do away with a rule that allows lawmakers to bring firearms onto Capitol grounds – including in their offices – as they prepare to take control of the House next year.

    Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., has long wanted the rule changed, but now he said he has the support of potential House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, he told The Washington Post.

    “I don’t think we can just keep looking the other way or sweep this issue under the rug,” Huffman told the publication. “Our political climate is too volatile and there are too many warning signs that we need to address things like this.”

    According to The Washington Post, it’s up to the Capitol Police Board to determine regulation surrounding firearms on Capitol grounds. It previously established “nothing . . . shall prohibit any Member of Congress from maintaining firearms within the confines of his office or any Member of Congress or any employee or agent of any Member of Congress from transporting within the Capitol Grounds firearms unloaded and securely wrapped.”

    Citing the politically-motivated 2017 shooting attack on Republican lawmakers and their staff – which left Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., seriously wounded – Huffman told the newspaper he has concerns someone would be able to gain access to a firearm legally kept in the Capitol and use it for a nefarious act.

    “I hesitate to even put in print some of the scenarios that I worry the most about, because the truth is, the House chamber is a place where we occasionally have all of the most powerful government officials in the country gathered in one place,” he said.

    Republican Rep. Thomas Massie, who chairs Second Amendment Caucus, chalked the proposed changes up to “theatrics.”

    “It’s proposing to solve a problem that doesn’t exist,” he told The Washington Post. “[Pelosi’s] worried that members aren’t responsible enough to handle a firearm?”

    In 2015, two Republican congressmen were criticized for posting a photo of the pair holding an AR-15 rifle while in the House.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy said fellow Rep. Ken Buck had permission to have the “inoperable gun” in Buck’s office.

    Why, it's a miracle the man can even get any sleep at night, or contain his urine long enough to get to the head.

    So what about the sergeant at arms? This is someone as part of their job who is supposed to carry a weapon.
    Another gun free zone and just perfect for a mass killing waiting to happen.

    Law makers NOT law keepers......

    Pelosi can keep her security, and so can any lawmaker, they just can't choose to protect themselves.

    Time for the Republicans to learn to use crossbows......just to spite the Dems and their stupid rules. Won't get through the Senate anyway.

    Why not, that is what they do to us. I'm surprised that they would do it to themselves, they normally exempt themselves, or maybe they fear, dare I say, really pissing off some Republican?

    It doesn’t have to. It’s a House rule and doesn’t apply to the Senate. Nor is it a law.

    I dont normally post but the upcoming dems control of the house is truly going to eff up this country more than anything we have ever seen.

    The hatred for conservatives Christians 2nd amendment supporters limited .gov self sufficiency is at nothing like I've ever seen in my almost 50yrs on this big blue marble.

    The brainwashing in the .gov sponsored (maybe directed I should say ) education from the 60s onward untill now has dramatically pushed us to this point.

    And like many others here I think that within 10-20 years or less the numbers will be so stacked against us that the votes stolen will no longer need to be. The invasion of foreigners who purposely do not integrate into our society and absorb our culture/believe in the intent our founding fathers had for our country we will be screwed....



    Unless........




    A civil war happens......





    And than may God help us all......


    There is no guarantee we will prevail.

    I've seen the horror and carnage that happens in that scenario and no one truly wins....and furthermore there is no way in my mind that the country once known for the God given rights of freedom come out ahead.......every pretty wannabe dictator will become known as they show their true selves.

    Sadly I dont believe there is any other way.

    Most likely I think we will see some form of balkanization.

    If not full blown war....

    Most likely culminating into mushroom clouds in the horizon........





    Anyways best first thing to do is get right with God...
    Get on your knees and pray to Christ.....(yea....I'm a bitter clinger)

    Than prep as best as funds allow....we're still a perp board right???????!!!!!???


    Anyways...

    As soon as I read the OP this video instantaneously popped in my head and I thought that I would share it


    NOT SAFE FOR WORK SO BE ADVISED

    Runtime 3min 45sec or so....

    The commiecrats just want to disarm all the Republicans. Then, at a time of their choosing, they will pull out their guns, and shoot all Republicans

    They also need to adopt a formal dress code while they are at it. I suggest differing symbols for Dems and Repubs so that new members can figure out who is who. The Dems should have large distinctive adornments on their backs, as they are the majority and are thus more special and deserve the distinction.

    If they do that, It should ban weapons of ALL kinds from ALL people including police, security and such.

    I ask myself; "Why? Why would Democrats who never saw a restrictive gun law they didn't like all of a suddenly want to repeal this one?". If I were a Congressman; Republican, Libertarian or other party affiliation other than Democrat... I would be concerned, very concerned.

    Because the one they want to repeal is a permissive one, not a restrictive one. Was this a trick question?
