Some heroes today!!! Do they carry Sig P229 357 DAK? Curious. I have friends in ICE and Homeland Security and that is what they carry....unless they've already switched to P320.

One of the officers is a Special Agent and the other an Agent of the Capitol Police. They are dignitary protection detailed and it is my understanding that they are plain clothes and may not carry the issue sidearm that the uniformed Capitol Police carry.

The standard issue sidearm is the Glock 22 .40 with Speer Gold Dots.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the only people still using p229 .357sig are air marshals and secret service.

Not just a supporter, he was an active Sanders campaign volunteer for the 2016 election.

Bernie admitted to it on the House floor this morning. While being a hypocrite calling for civility :huh:
It has also been reported that he was so involved with the Sanders campaign that he let his business license and home inspector certification lapse during the campaign.

Please say special prayers for Special Agent David Bailey & Special Agent Crystal Griner.

Crazy is not a political, cultural, or religious affiliation and mental illness isn't limited to conservatives or liberals or nationalists or globalists. Just because someone voted for a particular person or volunteered on a campaign (which over 10,000 people did) doesn't mean it's that leader's fault - just as Republican lawmakers shouldn't be held to account for the Dylan Roofs of the world.

Don't go down the path that leads you to blaming an entire group of people because there happened to be a crazy person or two - it's not good for the political discourse in this country and only deepens the divide and cheapens the tactics used against us.

So it's been established he was just some crazy mentally ill person? I mean sure, he's got issues, otherwise he wouldn't have done something we would never even consider. But he was an assassin, and not all assassins are crazy nut cases, are they??

I agree with you, but if you go back to the past 8 years conservative and libertarians weren't calling for violence. Nor would we have if Hillary won. Trump wins, and man the left has gone nuts. They have gone full re-turd, never go full re-turd. I think it's typical of the left's mindset, socialism and communism is dangerous, and violent so what is one to expect when they act out their beliefs.

STOP with this reductive thinking. You're doing exactly what I said and it's making this country worse.

You don't have to go back far to see examples where you're flat wrong in your wide-sweeping assertion:

I'm not here to start a left vs right debate, but it's sickening that people believe that either party would condone or encourage this. We're all Americans and we're all in it together, so stop fanning the flames of hatred by buying into this whole left v right argument.

Uh, I mean he was a building inspector in Illinois, not some elite operative. Yes you do have mental health issues if you think it's okay to travel 1000 miles to gun down some people because of their political positions. He also was arrested for beating his girlfriend in '06, seems it didn't stop him from gun ownership.

Seriously, I appreciate your efforts here, but there is no denying that the left is behind the majority of these kinds of attacks. Many left wing leaders have stood up and openly called for resistance, defiance, promoted rioting, sponsored BLM movements and sanctioned civil unrest all in the effort to disrupt the natural flow of life. Using the liberal media, these people have virtually perpetuated a state of civil war in American the likes that I've not seen in my lifetime. Your efforts, while noble, are actually quite naïve. I'm not saying Bernie Sanders or Barack Obama have ordered these attacks, but both have called for resistance, and they both have fostered an attitude of dissent. The national democratic battle cry right now is if you don't get your way riot, shut down highways, kill police, and secede from the union. How on earth can you assert there isn't a national left wing push to do these things?

Nor should he have been denied his 2nd amendment rights, he was not convicted of a violent crime. If you were arrested due to a complaint from someone that you beat them, but never convicted in a court of law, would you be OK with being denied your right to own a gun?

If so... as Jeff Foxworthy would say.. then you might be a Democrat. :D

My only point was that communism and socialism is violent. That is not American, and I understand what you are saying. I didn't say anything about being a republican or democrat. I said conservative, socialist, and communist sir. Not sure if they video is showing up, but its a video of Loretta Lynch calling for blood and death on the streets to protest Trump. Obama was notorious for surrounding himself with communist/socialists.
