As Senate Democrats were launching their offensive against Second Amendment rights last night, Townhall’s Leigh Wolf decided to venture onto the Capitol Grounds to see how many armed police officers (aka good guys with guns) were present protecting lawmakers inside.
The results were as expected. There were a lot of good guys with guns.
Capitol Police certainly had AR-15s available, but it’s odd how these firearms aren’t considered “weapons of war” when they’re in the hands of law enforcement or other government entities. As soon as a civilian owns one, it’s a problem. At the same time, we all know that Democrats consider gun ownership a government right, not an individual one. That’s precisely wrong. Nevertheless, have fun watching Leigh tally the many "death machines" that are present around the Capitol Building.
