Propose a Bill to Allow Open Carry in the US Capitol Complex

This petition had 326 supporters

The United States Capitol Police website states, "To ensure the safety and security of the U.S. Capitol Complex, certain items are prohibited from being brought into the Capitol Buildings and Grounds...Pursuant to the United States and District of Columbia Criminal Codes, firearms, dangerous weapons, explosives, or incendiary devices are prohibited on U.S. Capitol Grounds."

However, we feel that as long as Congress fails to enact reasonable gun control legislation, its members should be subject to the same operating conditions as their constituents.  Heck, the House just passed H.R. 38: Concealed Carry Reciprocity Ac, so this should be an easy petition for them.  This is a win-win for firearms enthusiasts and gun control advocates alike.  As long we're all going to live like it's the Wild West, with a shootout every other day or so, let's go for the same environment on Capitol Hill.
