Irony Alert! Armed manís Capitol intrusion unnerves Idaho lawmakers

Armed manís Capitol intrusion unnerves Idaho lawmakers

A man with a handgun used a tour for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts as cover to inspect legislatorsí desks and reach into a waste bin on the House floor.

The Jan. 10 incident became public Tuesday when Department of Administration Director Teresa Luna used a clip to demonstrate the need for rules prompted by last yearís Occupy Boise encampment.

Now under review by lawmakers, the new rules donít deal with the inside of the Capitol. But the video of the manís actions shocked legislative leaders into exploring beefing up security. Guns of all kinds are allowed at the Capitol.

ďEvents like that should disturb all Idahoans,Ē said House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley. ďIt certainly disturbed me.Ē

When it happens to other people it's okay but when it happens to you it's a problem. If guns are so great, why are these pro-gun lawmakers suddenly afraid of them?

I especially love this part:

Signs were erected outside the House and Senate galleries after the 2012 Occupy protests. They list prohibitions: food, drinks, men wearing hats, signs, sitting on rails, cellphones, distracting noises. Bags are subject to search. But there is no firearm ban.


Guns good!! cellphones bad!!! Seriously, you can't make this shit up.

2. So they can exercise their "right" to threaten, intimidate, and kill elected officials.

You needed to ask? I thought that part was obvious.
