    I was a Fire Marshal in D.C. and often worked with the Secret Service. I never had to go through the metal detectors. Through many State of the Union messges etc. I guess they had my clearances down pat. Whenever they asked me if I was "carrying" they would just assign me the approiate lapel pin. I won't tell you what that was but, I can tell you that the Secet Service are the most dedicated and professional people I've ever worked with. They have no problem with citizens being arned. (providing they know who they are) Kudos to the SS They do a great job, and get little recognition!

    She already does.

    It's common public knowledge. Heck, even the NRA has written about it in their magazines.

    The guy is right, for the wrong reasons, but right nonetheless. Everyone who can be armed should have that right, everywhere, all of the time.IMO.

    I wonder how many Congress-critters would actually qualify for a CHL.

    Too many members of congress would fail to qualify for a CC permit. Drunk driving, domestic violence, and criminal history aren't exactly uncommon amoug our elected representatives. And the president could not get a CC permit either: no birth certificate.

    But then they could just give themselves the OK (w/o the need for a CHP), like Kaine did for the State Prosecutors here in Virginia.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    For that to happen, one must assume any of them have any actual sense of honor. Tiny minority of them, certainly.

    Then CSPAN would have another reason they could not show the floor of the chamber even more of the time.

    Now, the rules don't allow it except for certain votes and ceremonies because the Pols don't want the voters to see how few seats are filled.

    However, the question would become fear of seeing their man cut & run for it.
