Double Standard

GOP senators blocked from bringing guns to hearing

In advance of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday morning, two of the committee’s Republican members sent a complaint that they were refused permission to bring guns to the hearing.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas sent a letter Tuesday night to Chairman Patrick Leahy, Vermont Democrat, that the purpose of bringing the firearms was to educate fellow Senators and “shatter the mistaken belief that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens are a danger to society.”
However, the Republicans said that “the requirements to secure the weapons at the hearing are so impractical as to be unworkable.” They asked that Mr. Leahy work with with local and federal law enforcement to ensure that at future hearings, “Senators can request, and law enforcement will provide, various firearms for display and discussion purposes.” A spokesman for the committee said Tuesday night that Mr. Leahy has not received the senators' letter.

Feinstein and Gregory can break the law all they want.
