Because He Was Just a Staffer

From Instapundit, we discover that Congressmen’s lives are apparently more valuable than their lowly staffers.

Thompson was booked for carrying a pistol without a license (CPWL) and for possessing unregistered ammunition. According to congressional rules, congressmen and senators, not staff, are allowed to have a gun on federal property.

If I can’t carry a gun on federal property, Congressworms shouldn’t be allowed to either.

    I wonder how they get the piece there, since it’s a felony just to carry it through the District?

    I’m guessing they either have an exception in the law, or the DC police are willing to look the other way. If Congressworms can get rides home from the cops instead of being properly booked and charged when they drive under the influence, I can imagine the DC and Capitol Police are willing to look the other way when it comes to Congress Critters packing heat.
