1. Great idea!

They should be jailed & charged, then expelled from Congress, imo.

They know, or should know, better!

Like oppositionally defiant children.

3. Going to be an interesting power struggle. My money is on Nancy.

I cannot wait to see this play out.

Right now we are in the "give the idiot child enough rope to hang herself" stage.

9. Sure, ratchet up the scale of fines.

But at some point, if you want to carry a weapon into a place where ideas are emotionally conveyed and received, we need to omit the tools of intimidation. And this is what the guns are.....a symbol of intimidation. Watch your words because I am packing. Fuck that, guns not needed nor desired in the people's Congress.

18. My failure in life, or maybe my life itself, I owe to the fact I've never been intimidated by guns.

It's possible I inherited that from my mom's pacifist family.

I don't let anyone I'd care to shoot live in my head.

20. Article I, Section 6 ...

https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/articlei

The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

21. But you can prevent them from entering and punish them.

Article I, Section 5 allows members to be punished for “disorderly behavior”

Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two-thirds, expel a Member

30. No it isn't. Being denied entry to a building isn't arrest.

Being arrested is being involuntarily detained and restricted from leaving.

28. It's directly deducted from their salary.

That way they can't fundraise for someone else to pay it.

17. Is there a metal detector installed at the Senate chamber door too?

It really needs to be done in both chambers, I hope they've considered this.

On second thought, why aren't there metal detectors installed at every outside entrance? Why only the chambers, when legislators are frequently seen walking through the Capitol but outside the chambers? Congressmen and Senators are in equal danger in the hallways, if people have not been checked for weapons.

23. Fines don't work unless they're enforced.

Make them do a random drug test. If they're hot take their gun.

If so, penalties and interest should be applied to any scofflaws as well.

Rules are voted on next month.

Hope they are retroactive.

29. Shock therapy

If the metal detector finds that they're packing, an automatic bolt of electricity goes straight to the metallic source and knocks them flat on their ass.
