Rules for us do not apply to her......if elected she will still push to ban guns I’ll bet.
Normally I would favor the gun owner but the hypocrisy is just too rich.
anyone taking bets on how long til the charges are dismissed??
She’s a Chicago Democrat! Give her a mulligan, or at least let her buy one/s:)
Aren't congressmen generally exempt from arrest when going-to or returning-home [from] Congressional session? Is that the case here?
I would like to see the political caste fed up with the TSA and their illegitimate searches -- dissolution of that agency can, IMO, only be good.
Its not gun culture , it’s concern for the prevelent “crime culture”.

It appears that he doesn’t yet have the seat of a congressman to cover his ineptness . He hasn’t yet been appointed , or elected . So , no - he isn’t covered by Congressional immunity , ..yet !
Was that one of those fashionable “clips” that allows you to carry your weapon on your lapel?
They’re all the rage, I hear.
By the way, did the gun have a magazine in it at the time?
Maybe it was a paper clip.
Now it is within the realm of possibility the firearm was a revolver and he had a Moon Clip full of ammo.
Of course it’s much more likely the reporter is an imbecile and just vomited words onto his word processor program without a clue as to their meaning.
It must be great to be a sub 65 IQ and able to get a job in journalism.
Dumb stupid a$$ed liberal. Even my dog is smarter than that.
Did you know what the reporter was talking about?
“Clip” has become synonymous for magazine... you might as well get used to it.
