Republican Louie ‘terror babies’ Gohmert drafting bill to allow guns on House floor

As Joe said at the beginning of the year, the old time GOP extremists aren’t about to cede ground to the incoming Teabaggers. It’s an all out race to see who can be the looniest of the bunch. Gohmert is doing an impressive job of jumping out into the lead. His “terror baby” ideas were strange but adding guns to the House floor will set him apart from your run-of-the-mill Republican oddball. Politico:

Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert says his office is drafting a measure to allow members of Congress to carry guns in the District of Columbia, including in the Capitol and on the House floor.

Gohmert says he and his colleagues need to be able to protect themselves, in light of the mass shooting in Arizona.

“It’d be a good thing for members of Congress who want to carry a weapon in the District,” he said. “I know friends that walk home from the Capitol. There’s no security for us,” he said, adding that the measure would deter people from attacking members. “There is some protection in having protection.”
