House installs metal detectors; Republicans say they were not consulted

In the wake of the Capitol riots, lawmakers will now be required to walk through metal detectors before entering the House of Reps chamber. Magnetometers had been placed at selected entrances. Some Republican lawmakers complained they were not consulted by Democratic leadership about the decision to install the devices. GOP Rep. Rodney Davis said the decision was ’political correctness run amok.’

Not Political Correctness ... it is an appropriate security measure after part of our political system tried to take over the country by force.

Won't Pelosi's neck bolts set off the detectors?

Because we now live in a society where mutual trust is a thing of the past, metal detectors are pretty much everywhere - airports, train stations, museums, big box stores, stadiums. I guess Davis doesn't get out much.

I'm surprised those weren't installed sooner.
