Senator, Thanks for being upfront & honest with the people(?)...

.
"Below the Beltway" came up with some interesting information and link to a story pointing out the fact that the Handgun DID INDEED belong to the Junior Senator. This after the Junior Senator had refused to admit the handgun was his after his aide was arrested while trying to take the handgun into the Senator's office building... This resulted in the Aide spending his birthday night in jail ... Way to watch after your people Junior...
"Webb previously had refused to say whether the gun was his, although his senior aide -- Phillip Thompson -- had told police the weapon belonged to the Democratic senator.
"It's my gun," Webb told the Richmond Times-Dispatch in a recent interview."
It is also interesting that when a reporter asked the Junior Senator if he carried his handgun within the District where he does not get the "special consideration" of a Junior Senator, Webb refused to answer and ended the interview.
"Webb declined to say whether he complies with the District of Columbia's law that prohibits carrying a handgun or concealed weapon without a license."
Just another example of "The Most Ethical Congress" that we now have with the Democratic Party in control of Congress. Wonder if Democratic Representative William Jefferson has proper credentials to store $90,000 in marked cash in his freezer that was involved in a FBI investigation?

I have no problem at all with Webb packin heat in the Congress office building for he, like all Americans must be allowed to protect themselves. One screwed up loser with two handguns can kill 30+ people in a gun-free school zone and college at that. One person with a concealed weapons permit and proper gun handling training and that idiot may have gotten off 3 shots before becoming room temperature...
