Sen. James Webb (D-Va.) said he owns the gun that an aide was arrested for carrying into the U.S. Capitol complex in March.
"It's my gun," Webb told the Richmond Times-Dispatch last week.
Webb previously had refused to say whether the gun was his....
Webb said little about the incident in March.
"It was a matter under legal consideration, and I was precluded from saying anything," Webb told the Richmond newspaper. "And I hope you'll understand that in matters of self-defense up here, it doesn't do anybody's safety a lot of good by talking about this stuff. We're pretty vulnerable up here."
Safety issues? Wait a second! Wasn't it only last May that this topic was being kicked around the blogosphere? Let's see, someone wrote "If gun rights are civil rights, why would anyone feel the need to hide the fact that they own one?"
