Shooting at Members of Congress

Republican members of Congress and their staff were on the receiving end of a hail of bullets yesterday morning while playing baseball in a park in Virginia.

The same Republican members of Congress who resist every even modest attempt to limit easy, unfettered access to guns.

In response to this shooting, members of Congress are receiving extra police protection both in and around Washington, D.C. and in their home districts.

That’s great for them, but…

What about the rest of us?  What additional protection from omnipresent guns do WE get?
