Webb's Aide Arrested for Carrying the Boss' Gun to Work

Hosted by

Phil Thompson, a top aide to a US Senator was charged with a felony crime today for bringing a loaded gun into a Senate office building. Freshman Democrat Jim Webb told reporters it was his gun and that he's licensed to carry in his home state of Virginia. When asked if he's "above" the tough gun control laws of the District of Columbia, Webb replied that he backs the Second Amendment and supports Virginia's more permissive gun laws, especially now that he's in the Senate. John McAdle is a reporter for Roll Call.
