The Second Amendment in Congress

In the wake of the Arizona shooting, Congress is discussing a number of ways to protect themselves from gun violence. The most interesting suggestion is to enclose the will House Gallery in Plexiglas.

At the same time, lawmakers have been proposing making guns as accessible as possible, even in bars and schools. Given this ideology, one should expect that members of would welcome this, many armed visitors as possible. Perhaps, to help the federal budget deficit, visitors could rent guns when they attend sessions of Congress.

Perhaps we might consider transforming congress to a shooting gallery. Visitors could bid on their targets. It would be a more meaningful poll than the current ratings of congress critters by various groups?
