‘Fightin!’ Jim Webb Embraces Gun Rights

by Amanda Carpenter | March 26, 2007 5:39 pm

Democrat Sen. Jim “Fightin!” Webb (Va.) embraced the gun rights La Shawn wrote about below by sending one of his staffers to pack his heat through Capitol Hill security today.

That’s how the story is shaping up so far. As I wrote on Redstate[1] earlier today, it looks like one of his staffers was arrested for attempting to carry Webb’s gun through security, which was a no-go regardless of the court overturning the District-wide gun ban.

Here is what the Capitol Police said about the incident:

A man entered the Lower Delaware & C Street Door of the RSOB at approximately 10:50 a.m. An administrative search (x-ray machine) revealed that he was in possession of a loaded pistol with 2 additional fully loaded magazines. It was determined that he did not have a license to carry a pistol in the District of Columbia. He was in possession of an unregistered firearm and unregistered ammunition. He was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with Carrying a Pistol Without a License, Unregistered Firearm and Unregistered Ammunition.

Staffers on the Hill are joking about the “curse of Macaca.” Here’s some other coverage from the Examiner [2]about this.
