To Louie Gohmert, the answer to violence is more guns, and allowing members of congress to carry them on the House floor.
“It’d be a good thing for members of Congress who want to carry a weapon in the District,” he said. “I know friends that walk home from the Capitol. There’s no security for us,” he said, adding that the measure would deter people from attacking members. “There is some protection in having protection.”
He said there were times during the health care debate last year that he felt afraid, including when a stranger approached him on the street and started screaming at him.
Gohmert’s staff is preparing a bill that would allow guns. Of course, what do you expect from a man who believes women come to the United States to have “terror babies” and to whom comparing Obama to Hitler is “brilliant.”
