Armed American RadioU.S.A.-( U. S. Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) will join host Mark Walters today (Friday 6-23-2017) at 4 pm ET on nationally syndicated AAR’s Daily Defense program to discuss the recent targeting of Republican representatives by a crazed left-wing lunatic and the subsequent calls for members of Congress to be able to carry guns in the District to protect themselves.

Rep. Loudermilk who was on the scene that day and thankfully uninjured was one of the first to make an immediate call for what appeared to be a special carve out for politicians to carry firearms while continuing to leave the rest of law-abiding America disarmed. In a statement he said:

“I think we need to look at some kind of reciprocity for members here,” Loudermilk said. “But also we need to look at security detail. If Scalise hadn’t been on our team, it would have been really bad.”

“We aren’t any more special than anybody else, but we’re targets,” Loudermilk said.

Mark Walters, the host of two popular, nationally syndicated, pro-gun rights radio broadcasts, was quick to jump on the comments as politicians “looking out for thee but not for me.”

Walters said, “As a resident and constituent in Loudermilk’s district, I was extremely disappointed to read those seemingly elitist comments. Rep. Loudermilk supports my right to carry and has worked hard to protect our right to bear arms and is also a co-sponsor of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. I am pleased that he is joining me on air today and I look forward to his clearing up any confusion as to whether or not he also supports the right of every American, not just the few Washington elite.”

Walters will re-air the Friday segment with Rep. Loudermilk on his huge Sunday evening broadcast as well.

If you are not a politician, you are a PEON…. Seems to be a world wide fact…


Just another “it is OK for me but not thee”. I for one am sick of these self appointed “special people” getting benefits not available to those of us that pays their salary, medical, living and office expenses etc. Another reason for term limits. If I can’t carry in DC why the hell should some congress member be allowed to do so???? We have to be exposed to criminals with no way to protect ourselves but they want to carry. I say BS to that.

@Circle8, And the right to recall (fire) our employees in the District of Corruption, too!

I listened to the program. Remember that members of congress always reserve the right to extend and revise their remarks. On the radio with Mark Walters Congressman Loudermilk clarified that HR 38, the National Reciprocity bill by Congressman Hudson was what was being supported with an amendment to include districts and not just states. I read HR 38 and it does not require that you get a carry license from your home state. A Florida, Utah or New Hampshire non-resident license will work. Pretty quick those states, such as NY, CA, IL and NJ will realize that they won’t be… Read more »


Seriously? Did nobody see this coming? These people,all of them, no matter how they vote, no matter what bills they sponsor, no matter where they are from and who they represent, no matter their voting records, no matter what they publicly profess to represent and support, believe, to their cores, that they are better than us. That they are more important than us. Are worth more than us. They live in a different world. A better world than ours. They all are back-stabbing , two-faced liars who will always hold the view that they deserve the things that they deny… Read more »

@Bill, Well, the founding fathers certainly did not see it coming. The founders could not even imagine the depth and breath of the corruption of the Congress, Supreme Court, and various Presidents. Yet, every election cycle those positions have to be filled. If the founders would have built into the system a “No President” or “No Senator” or “No Representative” vote, then at leas we would have the option of having no crook representing us. But that would not work either. We need to treat them as the dishonest employees that they are. What We the People need is more… Read more »



Your remarks are spot on. Of course they believe they are better than tne common man. Look at the millions of dollars in their campaign war chests. Millions. They are all bought off. Those millions didn’t come from any of the comon folk.

Myself….I believe the Tree of Liberty needs to be refreshened with all 535 + 9. That just for starters.


Congressmen appear to have the attitude that their lives are more valuable than those of the rest of us. Questioning Representative Loudermilk about this might prove interesting. Who knows, he might be convinced to introduce a bill to change DC’s concealed carry permit system from “may issue” to “shall issue”.


Ditto for the “may NOT issue” state of Maryland.

So Barry thinks her and his ilk are more important than the people who pay all the taxes that allow him and his ilk to run their mouths about nonsense.

1. National carry act for all individuals qualified to own a firearm.
2. No more special healthcare for government employees and congress. Buy the same stuff I do and deal with it.
3. Our so called conservative press needs to start asking these questions every time they speak with our elected reps. Don’t stop asking until things change or they get caught in their own lies.

And what about the rest of the law abiding citizen’s of DC? Nobody in government cares about anything until its their ox that gets gored. Or of course there is money involved.


It is good that individual law makers get armed. NOW AS FAR AS THE Second Amendment is concerned; ALL LAW ABIDING Americans HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE ARMED WHERE EVERY THEY MAY BE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congress, Judicial and the President SHOULD pass a law that enables the Second Amendments REAFFIRMED RIGHT of SELF PROTECTION BE ALLOWED AGAIN across all 50 States of America!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT 57 States ass ‘b.h.00bama’ stated. As it stands now; the government was beginning to be a Tyrannical government. Hopefully, under the leadership of President Donald John Trump, America can be pulled back from the brink of the COMMUNIST… Read more »


Mr. Walters,

Which do you think is going to happen first? I’ll tune in to listen, but I can confidently state it will be two different issues – national reciprocity vs member reciprocity. And there will most assuredly be gaping differences in what they each will allow. I’ve got a bridge for sale if you believe otherwise.
