Default We Need A New Federal Law

In today's environment, with all the "peaceful protests" going on, I think a law forbidding the wearing of any face covering while "protesting" would be illegal, with extremely stiff penalties.

I think that it would tame these events, and make things truly more peaceable.

If you watch the videos, 99% did not wear masks.

Only one mask for every 10 billion protestors? I'm pretty sure I saw more masks and FAR fewer protestors. You might want to check your counting.

I believe this is already a law in many states.

It should probably remain a state decision.

It would be wrong, especially at this time, to try to enact a fed law banning them.

The protesters last week being arrested and fired from their jobs certainly found out why their granddaddies wore masks.

I didn't say there were 10 billion protestors. What I made reference to was that there were very few people who actually did wear masks that I saw in all the videos that I've seen of the mob. The 99.99999 was a hyperbole percentage.

The Capitol installed metal detectors after the January 6 insurrection of the Capitol, obviously for the safety of everyone entering. But of course some members of Congress acted as though they were immune to the new rules and simply bypassed the detectors. Maybe they were “carrying”, maybe not. But the House set the rules that will likely cause those that thought they were above the law to reconsider. The penalty for House members who bypass the detectors is $5,000 for the first offense, $10,000 for the second, to be automatically deducted from their House paychecks.

My guess is the metal detectors will be uniformly used. I think the country needs a similar federal statute requiring the use of facemasks. It would benefit us all and foreshorten the pandemic.

I am puzzled by the requirement that members of Congress and their staff are required to disarm before entering the congressional spaces. Certainly, anyone intending to enter the space with the intent to kill congress members will ignore the metal detectors and enter the chamber fully armed. Then the only people in the room will be the evil doer. Perhaps you can explain how this is beneficial to the intended victims. Thank you. BTW, one congresswoman has already entered the chambers fully armed and not been fined or arrested.
