"But Not for Thee"
Congress is saying, “Guns for we, but not for thee.” There is a movement in Congress to allow members of Congress to be armed, after the shooting of Rep, Scalise. Members of Congress have begun to realize the fact that they are sorely threatened, and have no means to defend themselves. Rep. Mo Brooks says, “’Right now when we’re in Washington, D.C., once we’re off the complex … we’re still high-profile targets, but we have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.’s rather restrictive gun laws,’ Brooks, R-Ala., told Maria Bartiromo on ‘Sunday Morning Futures.’”
And he's right. The same rights should be recognized for all of us, but they're not. Every one of us is subject to being attacked, injured, and even killed, every day, at home, or on the street. We're high profile targets and have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of the “rather tight gun laws” in most areas of the country. Even the “gun-grabbers” in Congress could be armed, while attempting to make more and more laws PREVENTING us from doing the same. The contradiction here is obvious, made even more obvious by the danger to members of Congress that are equal to our own. (Oath Keepers)
