Senate Democrats call for new gun control laws — as armed guards stand behind them

hypocritesYou can’t get much richer in irony. Senate Democrats announced new gun control proposals on the steps of the Capitol Thursday. But due to the high number of officials present — 27 Democratic senators — there was increased law enforcement presence surrounding the senators, pictured in photos standing behind them.

The Washington Times noted the irony, and quoted several of the senators saying things like,

The victims and their families deserve better than a Congress that shrugs its shoulders and waited for the next tragedy,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon Democrat. “They deserve action.”

Well, Senator Wyden, you don’t have to wait for the next tragedy, since you’re surrounded by armed guards, so why do you want to disarm the American people so they’re more likely to be stuck waiting helplessly for the next tragedy? Liberal Logic 101 and a double standard, with Congress getting better, special treatment than regular Americans.
