Members of Congress generally don’t have security details and are targeted by people who want to kill them. They should be able to defend themselves anywhere but at the U.S. Capitol or a place where the Secret Service is protecting the president and vice president.
Members of Congress shouldn’t be allowed to carry a concealed weapon as broadly as this bill allows, as it would exempt lawmakers from all state concealed carry laws. They either need armed security or should only carry concealed weapons in their home states.
