Rangel Defends Armed Guards Despite Gun Control Support: ‘We Deserve’ To Be Protected


Democratic New York Representative Charlie Rangel defended advocating for gun control despite being surrounded and protected by guns, saying the difference was that members of Congress “need” and “deserve” to be protected.

The Daily Caller‘s Kerry Pickett challenged Rangel on the state of concealed-carry permitting in New York City, where celebrities and the politically connected often receive permits but everyday New Yorkers don’t. “Why should, say, the uber-wealthy who have protection have that protection, but individuals who are law-abiding citizens in your district should not?” she asked.

“Well law-abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry a gun,” Rangel responded. “You know that, so you’re not going to push me in that direction.”

“But you’re protected by guns all over the place here in the Capitol,” she pointed out.

Rangel laughed at that. “Well that’s a little different,” he chuckled. “I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.”
