Lawmakers should be forbidden carrying even a pocket knife while they’re in office. Abject fear is the proper state for them, all of them.

In light of Gabrielle Giffords and others, those in the public eye need to protect themselves, Guillen said on the House floor.

Unfortunately I will not live long enough to see politicians whipped out of the legislative halls naked.
