The reason only military police carry guns on bases, is because the military knows, that when guns are present, more people are shot and killed. It's a safety measure, to keep more soldiers alive. There is not reason why congress persons needs to carry weapons. Frankly, considering some of the Republicans are Q-Anon believers, it's not safe for them to have weapons.
Be quiet Kirk
@yofuknutz You sound like a Trump. Can't handle the truth. Can't handle the virus. Can't handle Putin, Can't handle anyone who disagrees with you, etc.
Go away JAR HEAD, at least in Isreal I can go home with my rifle every night 🌙.
@yofuknutz That sounds like a good place for you.
If the taxes of the regulations weren't so high I would consider it if they would accept my carry permit from this country and allow me to carry over while on vacation they would get more tourist dollars even Jamaica is revamping its firearms laws can making more friendlier for the American Tourist and pensioner that lives there as a matter of fact Puerto Rico last year made it easy you have a carry permit from any US state you can vacation there you just have to register your carry weapon with the airline and the commonwealth state police it's all about the tourist dollars excuse me babe I got to go I got a bus to catch no need to reply yes I realize your anti-gun and I am pro-second Amendment pro gun and nobody nothing but back and forth so let's agree to disagree here comes my bus later bro
actually trump changed the rule in 2017. you can now carry on military installations
@007kingifrit - You can, but it's completely discretionary based on the installation commander. If the installation commander refuses to allow carrying a weapon, you don't get to do that. The vast majority of them don't allow it. I know in the USAF they don't allow it at all.
passing a course for a concealed carry permit is NOT a qualification knowing how to use a gun... its only a document that indicates you have sat in on the course and passed the test, which NO ONE ever fails... unless there is obvious reasons the person isn't fit, or otherwise shouldn't be allowed to carry a hidden gun...
@centerline - What part of "shall not be infringed" (in the 2A) is unclear to you?The last thing I want is for mentally unstable people or criminals to be carrying. However, in an effort to protect myself and my family from the "bad guys", I need to fight fire WITH fire. Therefore, I own several guns of differing types, depending on the situation. Until someone can figger out how to prevent "bad guys" from having guns, I plan to exercise my full 2A rights by owning guns. Stopping me from protecting myself means the Gov't is taking responsibility for MY safety. If that's how they plan to act, I also plan to sue their asses for wrongful death should they be unavailable to protect my family.Why do you carry a gun? Because a cop's too heavy.Sir, I see you're carrying a.45. Are you expecting trouble? No. Why are you carrying a.45? Because they don't make a.46.A cop is always 10 minutes away when you need them in seconds.
i agree they have too much power but arming them sends the right message. every American has a right to bear arms
@007kingifrit ... everyone needs to keep it in context. every American has the right to bear arms EXCEPT when their job prohibits it, or the location prohibits it, or they have been convicted of a felony... in the context of the question, I dont believe politicians should have any more rights than the rest of the citizens, and anyone who feels that allowing the politicians to arm themselves, is not thinking it through... some politicians already are "untouchable" either by the law, or because they have so much power that any problems that may arise, will be buried... allowing them to carrying guns isn't the answer to the problem... if they would govern with respect for the people who pay their wages, and without greed, they wouldn't need to fear anyone... yet when they continue to be oppressive and govern like a dictator, then the only reason they would need a gun is so they can continue to be unfair without fear of being punished for their actions... I dont want my government to have that much power over me... just because the second amendment allows us the right, it doesn't mean that EVERYONE in this country has the right to carry a gun at ALL times, no matter where they are or what they are doing... somewhere, SOMEONE has to be making sound and fair decisions, and not just letting it be a free for all, and anyone who doesn't use some reasonable judgment is only fueling the cause for them to continue their attempts to take our right to own and carry guns...
I'd question the mental stability of anyone who truly believes that.
How about Nancy Pelosi and Auntie Maxine Waters? Both have obvious mental problems.Auntie Maxine told her lemming to chase Trump supporters out of public place. She was inciting violence.Joe Biden said he wanted to take Trump behind the gym and beat the he'll out of him.Let's not forget the Bernie Sanders lemming who shot a bunch of Republicans at a ball practice. He came near killed Steve Scalise.Carrying a gun in public can save ones life.The Capital building has security. No system is perfect so yes people in Congress need to carry guns.Why shoulda person be denied his second amendment right while doing his job in a place that was created by that came Constitution?

You call modern politicians job a public service?🤣Well they didn't do a good enough job when the capital was raided.This Olympic event are all target shooting, none of them would be able to handle 2 gun, 3 gun, or any other style of shooting for that matter.We have Jerry Miculek and Leana Miculek that both hold world records in shooting. Lena has won the world championship PCC for 3 years in a row, and Jerry is the fastest shooter in the world. We put more emphasis on practice shooting in the US compared to other countries.
self defence is always a personal responsibility. regardless of if someone else can do it or notof course the leftist doesn't understand that
There will be a civil war within 2 years
@nate_lake I wouldn’t doubt that it’s going to happen not sure when if the Democrats majorly over reach which there doing right now it will come a lot quicker. Let say in 2018 it was 20 years away, But with covid and the idea that Democrats stoke the election and Democrats doubling down on on how all Republican are racist it will definitely speed up the timing of the civil war. What will really exacerbate it they start taking away taxes Exempt satisfied from religious institutions For not marrying homosexuals, or they try to take children away from their parents who do not believe in the transgender ideology also the censorship of these big tech platforms those are the 3 things that would spark a civil war now
What about the BLM and antifa riots and activity last year
@yofuknutz As bad as the riots were last year, they were not aimed at over throwing the government, and undoing a legal and fair election. (The election determined fair by over 50 judges rulings) An insurrection, aimed at the heart of our democracy, aimed at take away what is essential to any democracy, is a far greater problem than anything that took place last year. If that insurrection had been successful, we would have ceased to be a democracy, we would have ceased to be a free nation. Our freedoms would all be in jeopardy in short order.
I agree. The January 6 insurrection was much more dangerous to our democracy.
Sure did their job for when tge capital was raided
Agreed, however nobody would have ever expected something like that to actually take place, but I'd bet you anything it will never happen again in our lifetime. Capital police got a good education that day just as the US did on Dec 7, 1941 and nothing like that has ever been tried again.
How about that idiot Auntie Maxine Waters from California? She told her lemmings to chase Trump supporters out of public places. He was preaching the value of violence.Steve Scalise was shot and almost killed by a Bernie Sanders lemming. Do you think he supports carrying his gun to work?Two many crazy Democrats in Congress.
@Dweezil Those two Dem's couldn't lift a guy, they can hardly lift a pen! Many more republicans' in congress are dangerous gun crazy carrying imbeciles!
I agree... they seem to believe the police can keep the rest of the citizens safe, so it should be easy enough to keep the politicians safe when they are all indoors at the whitehouse with guards all around...
I think everyone should take responsibility for their own safety, being vigilant and aware of their surroundings. Of course if something happens the congress men and womens first priority is to retreat from a situation that might force them to use their gun. They should only use it as at a point where security is not around to help or they feel their won't be enough time for security to protect them or someone else. This is stuff that you need trained on and everyone that plans on carrying.
Did my NFL analogy go right over your head? What possibly makes sense about taking a chamber full of people whose purpose is to argue passionately, and arming them all? That's a recipe for disaster and incredibly short-sighted. Your explanation does not include any rationale that overcomes that general common-sense logic.
So your saying that none of them are fit to be in office? What your saying they can't control themselves when in a disagreement?
I think SOME of them cannot, and you never know what triggers people these days. But really - the ones trying to break rules and sneak in guns.. like seriously wtf? They are clearly dangerous my any measure of common sense.
If they can not then they shouldn't be in office The capital was just raided so...
the laws shouldn't be strict then
@007kingifrit no they shouldn't. But until the corrupt politicians change it, congress should not be exempt.
They are ALL corrupt. The only way to control corruption in government is to have less of it.The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.
Gives a shit about the rules were they democratically-elected rules I'm pretty sure they were not and it's supposed to be if you have a license and it's concealed then we are good so fuck you and your rules
@yofuknutz Of course the rules were democratically decided on, it's congress, ffs. And, no, concealing a weapon doesn't make it legal.
That is not a law but a admin rule.
We'll see if you feel the same when someone is threatening your life with a gun or a bigger guy is threatening you.
I don't need a gun, I know Kung Fu.
Dumb to solely rely on that without a plan be.
Plan B is your mom
So nature of you. For someone that has a William Wallace inspired avatar you sure don't seem to be interested in freedom or self preservation.
These are the people who are going to decide our own 2nd amendment rights, who scorned gun owners for using guns to protect what was theirs and think they aren't trustworthy to own them. But they sure think they can have them themselves while the rest up us are forcefully disarmed.
And what makes you think I give even the slightest shits about your opinions or beliefs?
How does it feel to be an unapologetic hypocrite?
I’ll let you know when I find out.
😆 🤣 😂
EVERYBODY would be a lot more polite and courteous.
and why is it stupid?
Look dude, if you so badly want an argument just get an Alexa.
why do you post if you can't form more than 1 sentence long thoughts and then berate everyone who disagrees with you? you're not young enough to act this way
She's from California will be re-elected unless she gets knocked off her pedestal oh wait they tried that already
@yofuknutz she’s from Colorado www.google.com/.../%3foutputType=amp
Thats not far from the pass either, that is a California 2nd home.
@yofuknutz you’re nuts
Beats being a snitch bitch like U! So what kind of crap food U cook?
@yofuknutz I just made ragu fam
Chef Boyardee for me "a man with a can plan" i like my microwave low heat in the house. Hate the slaving over a stupid stove 19th century style.
@ChefPapiChulo That Republican should get arrested.
Security Oh you mean like Parkland yeah that worked out real well
Pretty sure no Country but US would consider it.
The irony to your parody is we still have freedom of speech to make such jokes. In China and other places that would be censored.
On Facebook that will also get you censored
I'm mixed on the issue. Politics causes A LOT of heated debates, I think it well within the realm of possibility someone may get trigger happy, BUT apparently Congress has been allowed to carry guns into the building for decades and nothing has happened.
