The news is out: [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that she and other colleagues “still don’t feel safe” after Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) was found with a handgun at the metal detectors just outside the House floor.
“We still don’t yet feel safe around other members of Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “One just tried to bring a gun on the floor of the House today.”
The concealed weapon was found in Harris’s suit coat at the metal detectors as Harris was trying to walk onto the House floor to vote. He reportedly asked Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.) to hold the gun so he could vote, but Katko declined because he didn’t have a license.
Ocasio-Cortez said any “responsible gun owner” would know that you shouldn’t hand a gun to another person “without clearing it.“]
Once again, Capitol police are ignoring a clear and present danger to the 435 members of Congress. They are waiting for a lunatic, and there are many who were elected, to go nuts and shoot up the place.
