Guns have never really been a solution to anything. My observation has shown that the typical gun-toting person has either committed a criminal act, or a civil act against someone or some group, in which they are now paranoid that someone else will be coming after them for revenge or to get even. Maybe Congress can just try to act civil, perform the job they were hired for, stop acting unethical or immoral, work for the American People, rather than Corporations and special interests, and they will likely never have to worry about needing a weapon to protect themselves. The millions of laws that have been created to protect the citizens, should also protect them. This would also be another cost, as every member will have to be checked, more security hired to inventory the weapons on a daily basis and another hidden tax burden on the citizens.
