Fact 1: Congress members were shot in public by a crazy man with an assault rifle. Fact 2: This crazy man was killed by two well trained body guards. Fact 3: The only reason the body guards happened to be there was because they were there to protect the majority whip congressmen. Fact 4: If the majority whip congressmen wasn't there, then the bodyguards wouldn't have been there and far more people would have died. Fact 5: Those bodyguards used their guns to SAVE LIVES. The moral of the story is if congressmen are allowed to carry a gun then they can protect themselves and terrorists will think twice before attacking a congress member because they know they will likely get shot. It's in America's best interest to let congress members protect themselves. If we lose congress members, we lose some of our ability to function properly. This bill is a good idea.
