Reid Loses

Harry Reid says that he's going to push for tighter gun control regulations and laws, and he made the argument on the steps of the Capitol yesterday.  But, he lost the argument before he ever started.

Protected by armed policeman, Harry says that we need better background checks and  to shut down the pipelines that supply criminals with guns.

That's an easy argument to make Senator, but it loses all it's punch when you're surrounded by armed men.  Any politican or celebrity who makes that argument while their safety is protected by armed personnel has already lost the argument.  The simple presence of armed personnel makes it extremely clear that politicians need guns, but don't want the rest of us to have the same protections.

I thought the Capitol was a gun-free zone.  There are guns in the Capitol?  Why do you need guns in the Capitol?
