New Jersey – -( The events that unfolded on January 6, 2021, at the US Capitol are hardly a distant memory and with that, the full details have yet to emerge.

There is a lot of finger-pointing.  Regardless of any stance, someone wants to take on this politically, what happened on the actual Capitol Grounds and the unlawful actions within the Capitol building shall not be tolerated.  The American people are better than that.  The willful actions of a select group of people are going to resonate in history and paint a picture that we, just frankly put, are better than as Americans.  With that, several arrests and cases are building from the events that transpired.

Looking at a list of arrests that are chronicled on The DC’s District Attorney’s page connected to the “Capitol Breach”, we can take a glimpse at what we do know so far regarding potential unlawful acts.  Of the 188 or so arrests only two make mention of firearm possession.

What is incredibly important to note is that the 188 alleged bad actors, and counting, those two firearm possessions are going to be used as talking points to further restrict the rights of American Citizens.

In essence, the unlawful acts of some anti-government lawbreakers have set back the civil rights movement when it comes to firearms.

Already the repercussions of this event and other high-profile, “newsworthy” events have lead to House Speaker Pelosi having a hissy fit over members of Congress carrying firearms on Capitol grounds and also the introduction to legislation that would restrict said persons from being able to protect themselves.

Everything always boils down to “common sense” when the anti-freedom crowd talks about legislation regarding firearms.

How is it not common sense to allow those members of Congress that wish to bear arms in protection of themselves and their colleagues, especially in light of what transpired?

No, the anti-freedom crowd is doubling down and wishes to restrict themselves while simultaneously seeking the use of public funds for additional armed private security protection.

Why do our members of Congress not wish to be able to take responsibility for their own safety?  What are they afraid of?  And how on Earth can they want to further limit themselves after all this?  If all these lawmakers were rightfully so, so scared, how could they not want to be armed?!?  They should not HAVE to protect themselves, but they should be ABLE to.  As we all should!

The Monday morning quarterbacking has already begun and the ink is hardly dry on all the warrants, never-the-less no cases have been heard.  Arrests are just arrests at this time, and there have been zero convictions. Including a number of suspicious actors released with no charges!?  To date, the listed alleged charges involve two firearms…Let’s remember this fact when more freedom limiting policies and laws are proposed concerning firearms using the events of January 6th, 2021 as a soapbox for the gun-grabbers to stand on.

Hehehe, be curious to see how many firearms show up if Congress keeps f’ing around with 2A laws…..


If there was any gunfire it was from unqualified Capital Security Guards.
The only one killed was Ashli Babbit, a 14-year veteran of the Air Force from San Diego. The other 3 died.


” “There is a lot of finger-pointing. Regardless of any stance…………. are building from the events that transpired.” So when American Patriots are finally really, really, truly fed up with the tyrannical infringements by anti-American politicians upon American Freedoms, Rights, and Liberties and implement the Second Amendment for which our Founding Fathers gave us the Second Amendment, is the author going to feel the same as expressed in this article about the recent Capitol “insurrection” ??? You refer to “insurrection” as though it is a bad thing. Must be “beauty in the eye of the beholder”. Was the First American Revolution…..”insurrection”……a… Read more »


So lemme see, less than 200 actual arrests (so far) and only TWO of those possessed guns. And that was out of how many thousands that were at or near the complex and yet by some mysterious ‘logic’ ALL 100 MILLION Law Abiding Citizen gun owners throughout the entire Republic (who did NOT cause any of the problems that day) are somehow to blame for the entire incident and MUST be ‘punished’ by infringing our Constitutional rights.
Yep makes ‘perfect’ sense.


Thank you for the link to “suspicious actors”, if everyone checks this out and reads the truth then contacts their representatives then maybe the REAL villains will get removed from our government halls.


“In essence, the unlawful acts of some anti-government lawbreakers have set back the civil rights movement when it comes to firearms.”

There is no firearms “civil rights movement.” Only an anti-, un-civil rights….aka anti-gun…..gun control……un-civil rights movement. God gave man the inalienable civil rights to be armed, to defend against evil and tyranny. Tyrannical politicians have initiated the un-civil rights movement away from that inalienable right. You’ve been slurping the Libtard Kool-Aid far too long.
“Insurrection” my a$$. Call it what it is……a Patriots Really, Really Pissed Off,Fed Up, Had Enough, Takin’ No More Peaceful Demonstration.

“Already the repercussions of this event and other high-profile, “newsworthy” events have lead to House Speaker Pelosi having a hissy fit over members of Congress carrying firearms on Capitol grounds and also the introduction to legislation that would restrict said persons from being able to protect themselves.” They were going to do that anyway. After watching the communist race rioters burn, loot, and murder all summer it is clear to everyone not indoctrinated by post Marxist ideologies that the hoopla over this non event is all melodramatic propaganda. The leftist media is controlling the narrative and you are being pulled into it, much like… Read more »


Spending all this time and effort to arrest the protesters in D.C., where there was only minimal damage and injuries and death, but no effort with any of the damages and injuries and deaths over the riots last summer? Oh, I get it, last summer was done by lefties, Democrats, BLM and ANTIFA, and in D.C., the protests were by the right and Republicans and liberal Congressmen got frightened. The frightened politicians makes all the difference in the world, even though scaring hell out of those politicians was likely the best thing to happen to them, for the citizens, in… Read more »
