    GOP Lawmakers trying to be Mythbusters are denied the opportunity

    Apparently Difi can get Ar-15s and AK variants into the capitol for her presentations by asking them to be provided by law enforcement. There are a few GOP senators who want to bring common hunting and defense weapons in to counter the myths and incorrect information that difi is pushing. They are denied this and the official request to obtain the weapons through law enforcement channels is met with resistance.

    I bet they would bring an AR set up for hunting purposes with a small 5 round magazine, chambered in a larger caliber suitable for hunting (maybe .308) and long range scope and maybe a pistol grip shotgun that is easy to handle for defense purposes. Course that would go directly against difi's idea that they are all 100 round bullet blasters that are only good for killing thousands of people with 1 pull of the trigger.

    They reserve theatrics and props for themselves only. Kind of like they regard freedom of speech, freedom from unlawful search, and the right to be defended with guns as reserved for only them too.

    The beauty of the 1A is: congressmen ought to be able to hold a fairly credible series of press conferences on the steps of the Senate and House buildings. Wouldn't disrupt the liberty bashing going on inside the chambers one bit.

    One would think that LE certainly has the access to the outside of the buildings. Can't keep a good senator down. If there's serious interest in thwarting the lies and deceit being thrown about inside the chambers but they're being blocked from defending themselves, time to move some of the fight outside ... in full public view.

    Perhaps but they want it on the record and in front of cameras.

    To me, the most disgusting thing by far is the entire angle of "let's justify a weapon for hunting." It shows how far we've been removed from the real meaning of the 2nd Amendment.

    It's the double-standard that eats at me.
    One's political point of view determines whether or not an 'exception' will/can be made.

    Apparently Lady Justice has her ears plugged and mouth taped shut too...and getting ready to have her legs cut out from under her.
