    Handguns are illegal?

    Didn't the DC appeals court just strike that down?

    Only as it pertains to carry inside the home.

    Well, seeing as how that would violate the law, that is a pretty smart answer, there, Senator.

    But isn't Webb imune from prosecution?

    Latest news is that the gun is Webb's. Webb was going to the airport and forgot he had it with him and passed it off to the aid. The aid "spaced" and brought it back with him.

    Wouldn't the DC license be a moot point, since it is a federal building anyway?

    For the Capitol police, probably. However, since it had to be carried onto the property through DC, they could inform the locals of the infraction.

    Now let's see what happens to him compared to if any of us had made the same "mistake" at the capitol building.

    You don't have connections. He does. The only day he is going to spend in jail is tonight.

    Hmmm. Very interesting, since there is no way to get to Capitol grounds without committing a felony. Do they parachute in and land on top of the dome so they don't violate D.C.s LAW AGAINST PISTOLS?, or maybe they use a transporter like on Star Trek. :x

    I know this is getting to be old news, but I thought the commentary was good on this one.

    From OpinionJournal.com

    To which Taranto commented:
