Hypocrisy much? Armed guards protect Senate Democrats as they demand new gun-control laws

October 12, 2015

Senate Democrats gathered Thursday on the steps of the Capitol surrounded by about a dozen armed guards to announce a new push for tougher gun-control laws.

The officers from the U.S. Capitol Police, who carried sidearms, were in addition to the regular detail paroling the Capitol ground due the large number of elected officials attending the event, according to a officer on the scene.

They announced a set of priorities for combating gun violence, which centered on measures to expand and strengthen background checks for gun purchasers.

    So shameful. They guard themselves with “Security” guards, paid for by the average tax paying American, while telling us they want to disarm us, to help protect us. Such hypocrites! But, this is understandable, as they voted themselves a “Special” kind of insurance, issued for their entire life and paid for by the American worker’s tax dollars, while forcing Medicare on the average citizen and daring to reduce our benefits: stating there are too many of us and we must endure “cutbacks”!

  • John Stachl

    It seems like NOW it is O.K. to give Terrorists and IRAN Nuclear Weapons, and Billions to build them, … BUT it is NOT O.K. for American Citizens to have GUNS to defend themselves !!!

  • unclebarry

    The Obama Regime is the biggest offender of gun
    control. There’s Fast n Furious–the regime selling/allowing
    thousands of guns to be sold to illegals who were taking
    them to Mexico to be used in all the drug wars. One gun dealer in
    AZ. contacted the ATF himself to let them know what was
    happening. The response was, keep selling, let it go.

    Then there’s the Benghazi gun runners. The state dept. headed by none other than Hillary Clinton was selling weapons to…ready?…Al-Qaeda
    in Libya to be transported to Al-Qaeda in Syria (anti-Assad rebels?).All this with the knowledge of the Libyian Ambassador & temporary US Embassy.

    This is what lead to 9/11/12…the attack on the US Embassy & the death
    5 heroic Americans. Only the commander-in-chief can order a stand down.

    This leads right up to Obamas door.

  • The Redhawk

    May be those Delusional LIbtards might come out with a nEW Gun Law:” Remove the Trigger Fingers” from all Gun Toting Criminals??? IT NOT THE GUN THT KILLS PEOPLE< IT IS THE CRIMINALS and ILLEGALS that DO!!!!!
    Democrats are Nothing but a Bunch of DELUSIONAL P*ICKS!

  • Richard Schwartz

    Young people from 18 to 30 do most of the damage yet us dummies are exposed while the “bright people” need protection. The “new law proposals” will be like a fart in a tornado.

  • Bowserb

    Hey guys, let’s get in touch with reality. Several here are suggesting taking away the armed guards from the Senate and see what they do. Who is going to do that? The president? The DOJ? The House of Representatives? The DC police force?

    DC is a big taxpayer-supported club with 435 congressmen, 100 senators, a “president”, a supreme court, plus about 500 times that many government bureaucrats, “civil servants”, lobbyists, lawyers, and who knows what all. Our part of it is simple and limited: We pay for it. No one in Washington DC does anything they don’t want to do.

    Neither political party is in this for the mass of suckers known as the middle class. Big oil, big pharma, big retail, big real estate. They get what they want. Examples? High energy prices, yet big oil has persuaded the House that they need to be allowed to export oil. (What? And why do we need the Keystone pipeline?) High prescription drug prices where other countries get the same drugs from the same companies for pennies on the dollar. Retail? Not much to say, except they’re a major force behind amnesty, sanctuary cities, and blocking the border wall. Do you think Walmart management wants to stop illegal immigration?

    We don’t matter. Which is why we must keep our 2nd amendment rights. That’s all that’s keeping us from “1984”.

  • john

    All these officers , where will they be when the economy crashes? Will they be protecting those criminals in Washington while their families are beaten and pillaged?

  • John Stachl

    They want to be PROTECTED by GUNS, … but our children should go to GUN FREE Schools so they can be butchered by Terrorists, Lunatics and Murderers that decide to walk in with a “shooting spree agenda” !!! I bet their children don’t go to schools that have no protection !!! Obama walks around ALWAYS with TWELVE armed Body Guards !!! … His daughters with SEVEN !!!

  • paulrph1

    This just goes to prove what we have already known. They are the elitists who need protection from us so they and continue on the controlling of us. They some how have forgotten about themselves and think because they are elected to an office that makes the superior. Yet they forget those that put them there. And the real kicker is the stupid voters will put them in time and time again. They make promises of security all the while taking away your real security.

  • JB Wright

    The treasonous bastards wouldn’t last a day without their armed security, and rightfully so

  • pFeather

    I support gun control, no liberal democrats should own or possess a gun of any kind nor should they receive any armed protection.

  • Sandra Manzi

    This is how phony the Democrats are, let their body guards carry MACE.

  • freedomoutpost ken

    Let’s experiment! How about a trial where we take guns away from all the officers protecting Government officials and after twenty years poll the officials to see if they want the officers to have their guns back? Do you think that would ever happen?

  • M J

    The Dems/RINOs ARE the tyrannists and should have NO armed protection! They should try out the gun-free lifestyle while they are in office – then tell everyone (under biometric lie detector) how it all turned out – if they are still alive.

  • DonCentTX

    Interesting to note that no liberal democrats
    have signed in here to defend their chosen ones.

  • john jones

    when he retires I hope he takes biden Hillary harry reid and nancy Pelosi with him. get rid of these communist and maybe some one can balance the budget.

  • john jones

    before Obama went into the white house every president that left office had 10 years secret service protection. when he leaves office thanks to his legislation he will enjoy a lifetime of protection at the expense of taxpayers. at first I thought he would move back to Chicago but with all that crime in that city he has bought 10 acres in Arizona to build his retirement mansion surrounded by armed guards.

  • Ray Glenn

    That’s the best test I’ve ever heard 4 the anti-gun crowd,give up ur own security before u take ours away!!!

  • chuck stanford

    You are right US Army. Take their protection away. They be crying like babies.

    Australian Gun Law

    Here’s a thought to
    warm some of your hearts….
    From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in
    Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
    from Down Under.
    It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were
    forced by a new law to
    surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by
    our own
    government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
    more than $500
    million dollars.
    The first year results are now in:
    homicides are up 6.2 percent,
    Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6
    Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44
    In the state of Victoria…..
    lone, homicides with firearms are
    now up 300 percent.(Note that
    while the law-abiding citizens turned them in,
    the criminals did not
    and criminals still possess their guns!)
    figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
    decrease in armed robbery
    with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since
    the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been
    a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident
    is at home.
    Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how
    safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was
    expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’ You won’t see
    this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State
    Assembly disseminating this information.
    The Australian experience speaks for
    itself. Guns in the
    hands of honest citizens save lives and property and,
    yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
    Take note
    Americans, before it’s too late!
    Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours
    WHY? You will need it.


    • reggie

      More violent crime BECAUSE of gun ban.

  • joe

    I agree. We need more gun control regulation so let’s start with the politicians. Disarm _their_ bodyguards. Have the bodyguards, including the presidential Secret Service personnel, carry some canned food to throw at any potential shooters, as an Alabama middle school class was instructed to do. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ala-middle-school-tells-kids-throw-cans-shooters-article-1.2075972

  • reagangs

    It’s been this way for some time by now. Even the wealthy demowit donors have armed security to protect them 24/7. Old Georgie Soros has an army of armed security …. I can’t imagine why. It seems that they remember the past of WWII when the brutal leaders (Nazi and USSR) confiscated all weapons and created a police state. Or maybe they haven’t forgotten. At least they have forgotten the basis for our Second Amendment and our Original Militia …. the one that defeated the King.

  • Downdraft 94

    Just imagine for a moment…note from the pictures here I can see a “select” group of power hungry politicians incorporating for themselves guns and gun “toters” …protecting themselves and their families…

    …from law breakers who would then have a “field day” of the then gun-less citizens to abuse and attack us as they pleased…

    However, the law breakers would not touch the dictatorial political group who have their own battery of guns and body guards, because “they have the guns”!

    I can’t imagine Americans being so weak as to tolerate dictatorship of any nature, or caring less that they would be willing to allow “take over” of their freedoms…their country, their Constitution…

    • Liberty’s Advocate

      I’ve come to the realization one cannot underestimate the intelligence of the average intentionally uninformed American voter … regardless if there is a “D”, an “R” or an “I” on their voter registration card.

  • Terry Rushing

    This is no real surprise really; it’s the same old “elitist” position with the “do as we say, not as we do”.

  • Liberty

    While attending the Battle for the Second Amendment hearings at the Colorado capitol, months prior to the people’s dethroning of (D) Speaker Morse (A/K/A One-more-outburst-like-that-you-veterans-and-hunters-and-I’ll- have-you-removed–yes, that one), I heard an elected (D) at the podium thank the (R) minority members for walking them to their cars the night before. And another argue against carrying a gun at a theatre because, he sobbed, “Holding popcorn in the left while the right hand holds my wife’s, how could I hold my gun?” We are not up against reason here, folks. We are up against Elitists with self-prescribed armed protection who want you to Cower in a Corner. Beat them to a pulp at the ballot box.

  • Raymie Connolly

    We are going to hunt you so called representatives.

    • Liberty’s Advocate

      Don’t you mean “mis-representatives”?

  • Denise ogrady

    If we have no protection neither should they! And that starts with Oblowhole and his family. They are no more important than we are! We has more sense than all them combined!

  • kasper-ghost

    The “Occupier” is a freakin idiot! And I don’t have much good to say about his Secret Service agents either. When every agent that is protecting a democrap, lays down his or her weapon, then perhaps the checks and balances could be a bit more equal. But we all know that will never happen. Besides, these dirtbags have weaponry that far exceeds our guns anyway. Who do they think they are trying to fool? Not us! So….we must keep what we have, and band together, and pray for the best.

    • Terry Rushing

      Sadly, the current mess is not totally chargeable to democrats. None of the problems to be faced could have been possible without the Republican version of Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, and the Republican version of Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner. Corker, McCain and Graham can take a few accolades too.

  • teaman

    Of course they do! These idiot jack butts believe they are a protected class and should be guarded 24/7. The majority of people in our Nation wouldn’t shed a tear over the loss of a Politian and they are certainly not more important than our children in schools. It’s not about the guns and this proves it. It’s really all about controlling the population by any means possible.

    • Eric

      Exactly right! People need to vote these Idiots out of office! McConnell, Reid, Pelosi need to shown the door! Why is it these Commies get to stay in their cushy positions?? U.S voters are the problem just like the Idiots who wanted and voted for the Muslim Obama?

      • reggie

    Because they can order their own protection, and because those who question it are disparaged beyond decency!

  • John McClain

    Since the bozo got elected, he has had a solid agenda, long drawn up, with hard turns at specific junctures, and in achieving beyond his expectations, it’s my opinion he had to choose. He chose the agenda, his marching orders, and allowed “gun control”, the favorite baby, to lay aside, and in the past seven years, the gun industry, driven by the abject demand for personal defense on the premise there has been no defense of the nation considered, is now some 40% larger than at the time he was elected.
    Women routinely know “they have been left on their own”, all of us have seen the effort to keep us unarmed by subterfuge, hundreds of offices ordering millions of rounds, and consuming all domestic supply until Russia stepped up, saw our issues, and began with long established Russian/American corporations and has been filling that hole which this, our government never meant to take delivery on, only block our access.
    Today, that can’t happen because those intent on the power took their eye off the ball. At this exact point in time, from a Marine professional’s perspective, there are more guns in the hands of “The People” than ever before, twice as many personal defense weapons, more mothers, wives, and daughters have handgun training, professional, deliberate, and we have lost our confidence in any desire of government to serve.
    The ball is in our court, we merely have to follow up our actions, taking arms, developing our security without our minions, and we need to simply get our principles dusted off, come to grips, and recognize why so many of our “Heroes” are known by name, and mostly dead, and recognize “these are times that try men’s souls”, no less than the others.
    If we merely show up, prepared, we’ve already won. We have to show up though, and it starts with remembering, they are our minions, and when we all write to them, call them, demanding, expecting, they must respond.
    I speak of “Constitution” constantly, it is time we open our Declarations, dust them off, and remember our “first principles” are in it, the constitution is merely the design of government to fulfill the principles we broke our “common political bonds” over, and we are in the same position today, the empire just isn’t an ocean away this time.

            OK; how about this?

            Firearms and Arrest Authority of Federal Agencies
            I’m from the Government, and I May Have a Gun
            Excluding 33 Offices of Inspectors General, 24 federal agencies each employed more than 250 full-time personnel with firearm and arrest authority in 2008. Indeed, law enforcement is the main function of most of these agencies. Few people would be surprised to see field agents of the Border Patrol, FBI, U.S. Marshals Service or the Secret Service carrying guns and making arrests. The complete list includes:

            U.S. Customs and Border Protection (36,863 officers)
            Federal Bureau of Prisons (16,835)
            Federal Bureau of Investigation (12,760)
            U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (12,446)
            U.S. Secret Service (5,213)
            Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (4,696)
            Drug Enforcement Administration (4,308)
            U.S. Marshals Service (3,313)
            Veterans Health Administration (3,128)
            Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation (2,636)
            Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (2,541)
            U.S. Postal Inspection Service (2,288)
            U.S. Capitol Police (1,637)
            National Park Service – Rangers (1,404)
            Bureau of Diplomatic Security (1,049)
            Pentagon Force Protection Agency (725)
            U.S. Forest Service (644)
            U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (598)
            National Park Service – U.S. Park Police (547)
            National Nuclear Security Administration (363)
            U.S. Mint Police (316)
            Amtrak Police (305)
            Bureau of Indian Affairs (277)
            Bureau of Land Management (255)
            The Not-So-Obvious Federal Law Enforcement Agencies

            In 2008, another 16 federal agencies not so typically associated with police powers employed fewer than 250 full-time personnel with firearm and arrest authority. These included:

            Bureau of Engraving and Printing (207 officers)
            Environmental Protection Agency (202)
            Food and Drug Administration (183)
            National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (149)
            Tennessee Valley Authority (145)
            Federal Reserve Board (141)
            U.S. Supreme Court (139)
            Bureau of Industry and Security (103)
            National Institutes of Health (94)
            Library of Congress (85)*
            Federal Emergency Management Agency (84)
            National Aeronautics and Space Administration (62)
            Government Printing Office (41)
            National Institute of Standards & Technology (28)
            Smithsonian National Zoological Park (26)
            Bureau of Reclamation (21)
            And the Inspectors General

            Finally, 33 of the 69 federal Offices of Inspectors General (OIG), including the Department of Education’s OIG, employed a total of 3,501 criminal investigators with firearms and arrest authority in 2008. These 33 Offices of Inspectors General represent all 15 Cabinet-level departments, as well as 18 other federal agencies, boards and commissions.

    • podunk1

      Making law in defiance of Supreme Law “Shall not infringe” is treason.

      We literally have millions of 2nd oath bound citizens, enforcers, judges, and officials… sworn to defend that law against any enemy of it, without hesitation or cause of evasion.

      A large group of oath bound officials gathered together to act against Constitutional authority literally defines INSURRECTION! Using the powers of their offices to mock and defile the constitution further betrays the allegiance they owe to both Constitution and country as defined by REBELLION! Amendment 14-3 & 4 absolutely bands everyone of them from holding any USA office! It’s plain old publicly displace on every media from here to China!

      I agree, US Army Retired, but your George Washington quote is a myth. He never said that. Closest to that is from the his first annual message to congress: “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.” Source: mountvernon.org

      When you argue for our side, it’s best to not use anything that can be discredited. There are a bunch of bogus Jefferson quotes, too.

          Believe me, they aren’t stupid, why do you think they want to let illegals vote? American who are working, retired, and some on subsistence are catching on and they may not vote for a Democrat this time so they must sign up illegals.

            Illegals don’t have to actually vote. They just need to be in our country to determine the number of Electorial Votes for the state. For example: California gets an additional 15 Electorial Votes for the increase in population (illegal immigrants). The presidential election is decided by the Electorial Votes, not by the actual number of popular votes.

            True but they still need their votes on domestic issues, last time I voted for a President there were more things on the ballot besides the President and his VP choice.

      Could be they have reason to fear: Obamacare, the Iran “dead”, the increasing cost of energy, the “in your face” Global warming antics, the failed government backed “green energy”… and the list goes on. Yeah, perhaps there are some “spooky” things to make supporters of such things afraid.
