Colbert King writes about Marco Rubio’s determination to get rid of D.C.’s tough gun control law.

King asks, why not abolish gun control in the Capitol if that’s the way to make everyone safe? The Capitol has a gun control ban that is absolute.

After all, nowhere is the lawful exercise of the Second Amendment, as Rubio and the NRA define it, more infringed upon than at the U.S. Capitol.
  Congress’s restrictions leave no wiggle room. NO GUNS ALLOWED EXCEPT FOR AUTHORIZED LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS.

According to rules of the Architect of the Capitol: “The following items are strictly prohibited in the Capitol, including the Capitol Visitor Center: . . . Guns, replica guns, ammunition and fireworks . . . electric stun guns, martial arts weapons or devices.”
That’s right. If you are a law-abiding citizen, have passed a background check, received firearm training, have a permit to carry a concealed weapon, carry a loaded gun and want to visit your senator or representative, or sit in the House or Senate gallery, or eat in the cafeteria, you simply cannot.

How can Rubio and the gun rights movement let that be? 
Their whole premise is that the power of self-defense rests with the people, and that, as the NRA preaches, “no person is left to depend solely on the state’s good graces for his or her very life.”
 So why limit the power of self-defense to D.C. residents?

Shouldn’t those powers be bestowed upon our fellow Americans who visit Congress?
It’s not as if the Capitol complex is immune from gunplay.
