As this Washington Post article explains, it’s legal for Senators/Representatives (and their designees) to carry a gun in the Capitol. However, it is not legal to carry that gun anywhere in the District. I understand Sen. Webb’s demurring on answering on whether he’s carried a gun in the District in the past (even if it was with some incredibly lame invocation of 9/11). He may need to be reminded, though, that he’s not above the law – he has no business carrying a gun from Virginia to the Capitol on a daily basis. It’s against the law, and it would get me, you, and pretty much anyone else arrested. Don’t like it? Fine, work with the District to rework the law. But until then, respect it.
