Marine Corps Congressional Fellow Arrested For Having A Loaded Handgun In DC

I deeply respect our men and women in uniform, but they should also know that the District of Columbia is not gun-friendly. Not even in the slightest. We’ve had press secretariescongressional interns, and members of the National Pork Producers Council arrested for trying to bring their firearms into government buildings.


Now, we have a Marine Corps congressional fellow who’s been arrested by Capitol Police after .45 caliber handgun was found in his car upon a routine search outside the Rayburn building (via Roll Call):

Gunnery Sergeant Peter Boby was arrested after officers discovered loaded .45 caliber handgun in his vehicle during a routine vehicle inspection outside of the Rayburn House Office Building. USCP spokesperson Lt. Kimberly A. Schneider said in a statement, “At approximately 2:00 pm today at Washington Avenue and C Street, SW, USCP officers were conducting administrative security screening required for entry into the secure perimeter. Officers discovered a loaded .45 caliber handgun in a vehicle.”

Boby was charged with carrying a pistol without a license, unregistered ammunition, and unregistered firearm. Schneider said he is being processed at USCP headquarters on D Street NE.

“[Boby] is an active duty Marine. He is a gunnery sergeant and he is assigned as a congressional fellow,” Major Paul Greenberg, a Marine Corps spokesman, told CQ Roll Call when reached by phone Tuesday afternoon. The Marine Corps did not offer a comment on Boby’s arrest.


So, once more, do not bring your guns into DC. You’re messing with Scylla and Charybdis (legally) by doing so, and it could ruin your life.
