Here's my comment.
Why is this news, now? This has been the practice since Ky. became a state in 1792. It may have been an increase over the last 18 months, but I'd wager there were other times, in the last 200 yrs., when more than 50 people carried a gun into the Capitol. I'd bet there was a time when everyone who entered the Capitol had a gun. Does anyone think that debates on mountaintop removal and immigration are more contentious that what took place during the Civil War? After this story, there will probably be 150 guns guns carried into the Capitol next year in Jan-March.
