Insty points to a blurb in regards to the Webb gun incident:
The reporter therefore asked, “Do you, senator, feel that you are above Washington, D.C.’s gun law?” Webb replied: “I’m not going to comment in any level in terms of how I provide for my own security.”
Truth be told, I wouldn’t answer this question either, and I don’t blame Webb for not answering it. You never tell people when you are or aren’t carrying. An appropriate response to a question along those lines is “None of your damned business,” so I think Webb’s comment in this regard is fine by me. I would like him to be more forthcoming about how his aide ended up with the gun and whether it was his gun. But I don’t believe he needs to answer questions about where and when he may or may not carry his side arm. That’s his business, and he has good reasons for keeping it that way.
