Imagine that you accidentally carried a bag containing firearms in the Senate building. You just forgot they were there. What do you suppose would happen? I'll bet good money that you- just a plain old citizen- won't get treatment like this-
A U.S. attorney's office on Friday dismissed weapons charges filed against a top aide to Sen. Jim Webb, D-Virginia, after the aide brought Webb's loaded pistol into a Senate office building in late March.
Phillip Thompson, described by Webb's office as a "former Marine and ... a long-term trusted employee of the senator," was arrested in the Russell Senate Office Building. An X-ray machine spotted an unregistered firearm "with two fully loaded magazines," according to Capitol Police at that time.
Unlike Thompson, you aren't "connected", the political equivalent of the "Only Ones".
