The ODD Detail About The January 6 Capitol Protests That You Haven’t Heard About

If you listen to the mainstream media or leftist politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, or Kamala Harris, then you probably think that the protests at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 were incredibly violent with lots of gunfire and destruction caused by gun loving Donald Trump supporters. While it’s true that most of the protesters at the so-called “riot” (which was remarkably peaceful) were Donald Trump supporters and advocates for gun rights, gunfire and destruction weren’t terribly widespread.

In fact, in spite of the fact that many of the protesters were gun owners, the number of guns confiscated in relation to those protests is surprising. Chuck Ross writes,

A top FBI counterterrorism official testified on Wednesday that no firearms were recovered during arrests of rioters who breached the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds during that day?” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson asked Jill Sanborn, the FBI official, during a Senate Homeland Security hearing.

“To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point,” replied Sanborn, who serves as FBI assistant director for counterterrorism.

“I don’t want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol police, but, to my knowledge, none,” she added.

Sanborn also said that no shots were fired at the Capitol, save for the one fired by a police officer that killed Ashli Babbit, an Air Force veteran from California.

“I believe that the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of the lady,” Sanborn testified, referring to Babbit.

Babbit was shot while attempting to enter a restricted area of the Capitol.Johnson noted that more than 300 people have been charged in connection with the riots, 40 of which have been charged with assault.

You didn’t misread that. No firearms were confiscated during the protests. Not one.

As Ross noted, that’s “a bit odd for an ‘armed insurrection,’ one would think.”

Yes, I agree, Chuck. It is odd. That’s no so much of an insurrection, is it?

    • Just about every assassination of attempt of a prominent politician since Lincoln has been committed by a Democrat, liberal, socialist, or Muslim.

        • That’s sounds right !!! Leave it to A COMMUNIST CLAN OF LYING cheating thieving stealing thugs !!!! These is not one of those thugs in the whitehouse worth greatly used toilet paper. And I knew as soon as I heard peeelousi’s side of the story it was all a damn lie !!! Hey “”old man”” when it how long do you think it will take before somethings done about those thugs holding our Whitehouse hostage ??? With their fraudulent election ??? And allowing these IDIOTS destroy this country. I bet if this so called FBI was on the UP&UP It would have already been done. But we all know they are a big part of the problem !!! Busy covering crimes COMMITED BY the Fed’s and those communist DAMOCRAPS. Like HILLARY and Obama and commie joe being involved in human trafficking themselves and every member of that clan should have already been I prison and facing a firing squad. What do you think young sir???

          • Yes Yes Lockem all up start with hillery Nancy N Chucky.l left N. Y. Because of them and Cummo and N Y ‘s taxes

          • I think you are very informed, awake, and right on target. Every frigging word…the question is what are we gonna do about it, before we reach the proverbial “point of no return”?

      • How funny you say that: EVERY mass shooter in the US since Colombine has been a LEFTIST! One was maybe a borderline conservative, but was desperate because of all the lies the DEMONS are proffering.

  1. Just curious, have the scumbag dems who blocked the Capitol a few weeks ago been locked up incommunicado?? No, I thought not!

      • Yeah, they were welcomed with open arms by their fellow travelers! Spreading COVID & who knows what else demorats carry! It would now be ironically funny if about 1/2 or more of all these fools would come down positive! Think they all wore their masks? Just look at the photo of all of them on their private plane!

  2. The January 6th “Insurrection” was a false flag operation concocted by the Left in conjunction with the FBI, CIA, and other Deep State operatives to divert citizens’ attention away from the election fraud that had taken place and the certification of state electors that were representing the fraudulent results. The forensic audits taking place in a number of swing states are confirming that the election numbers were completely bogus. All the perpetrators of the election rigging are guilty of treason and should be hung or face a firing squad.

    • Three points.

      1. The riot may have been led by ANTIFA and BLM agent provocateurs with Pelosi’s complicity.

      2. Most of the rioters were Trump supporters.

      3. You don’t seem to have a clue as to what constitutes treason and where it’s founds in US law.

      • I can agree to your first comments , but as for # 3 , perhaps you should read on Article 3. Section 3 , and do some reading as to what TREASON actually is ??? I can’t help that the # 3 keeps showing up everywhere in life ??? L O L A TAKE-OVER OF POWER that defies the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DOES IN FACT CLASSIFY AS TREASON ! ! !

        • Oh, I’ve read Article 3 Section of the Constitution and also the rest of the Constitution more than once and even have taken courses on the Constitution.

          You’re misinterpreting Article 3 Section 3 which states, “Treason against the United States, shall consist ONLY in levying War against them, or in adhering to their ENEMIES, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open court.”

          “Enemies” refers to foreign powers we’re at loggerheads with. There’s no proof that the dishonest socialist Democrats committed election fraud AT THE BEHEST OF A FOREIGN POWER. Of course there is suspicions that both Russia and China tried to interfere with our elections on numerous occasions. And there’s the issue of Hillary and the fake Russian Dossier in the 2016 election.

          So what does conspiring against lawful power constitute? The word you’re looking for is SEDITION.

          According to US Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115, Section 2384 – Seditious conspiracy, “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

          To put it succinctly, the word TREASON is vastly overused by both sides. I doubt many here know when the last person was executed in the US for treason or why. However, the statute on treason can be found at US Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115, Section 2381.

          • The only part of the sedition definition that doesn’t fit is the use of “force”. From what I saw it was all manners and level-headed conversations once inside, mostly welcomed and ushered by capital security. There were actually Antifa provocateur outside that attempted starting trashcans on fire and real patriots got up in their faces and made them stop and extinguished them before it got out of hand. The still photos were dramatic and make it look deceivingly violent and chaotic, with people hanging off the walls like monkeys, but the moving video showed that it was pretty low energy, and the monkeys on the wall were basically just cutting in line to get ahead of all the crowd leading up the steps to the entrance. And the mostly covered up and silent part about the pipe bombs that were planted a day or so before by a black man…well that just doesn’t fit the narrative and is counterproductive to the agenda, so its just been scrubbed from future reference 😉

  3. It is also odd using the word BREACH, WTH some open the doors and let them in. I guess breach more violent like blowing in the wall, as far as I know the only shot fired was the one that killed ms Babbit.

  4. Liberal Socialists love spreading misinformation, aka, lies, in order to terrify voters and gain total control over American citizens, who disagree with their Socialist/Marxist/Communist agenda. It’s an anti American power grab. It’s disgusting and their corruption, knows no bounds. They should be removed from office and tried for their crimes against America.

  5. It is not true that most inside the capitol were Trump supporters. The FBI, the next day, said that “timewidse” Trump still had 12 minutes of his speech , a mile away, when the breach happened. His people couldn’t have made it there by then. Antifa website said that to dress like Trump supporters, and infiltrate the group, but they went in ahead. They arrested groups inside the capitol….Antifa, BLM, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, InsurgentsUSA. One Antifa lied and said that Trump sent him. Trump didn’t send anyone for at least 40 minutes. Will the FBI be truthful?

    • Post a reliable site that proves your contention. While the instigators may have been BLM and ANTIFA with Pelosi’s complicity, most of the rioters were Trump supporters.

      • She is right about the 12 minute offset of time from the start of the festivities and the end of the speech. That part is well documented, the speech wasn’t over yet. I would like to see the “Trump sent me!” evidence, not that I don’t believe it, I just have a thing about checking my own facts before I post or repeat anything that is hyperbole or unsubstantiated, mostly because I want to be factually credible when I post or speak, and don’t want to be perceived as a dumbass spouting dumb shit. I would like to add I have seen video and read statements from attendees of 3 chartered busses with Capital police escorts that pulled up and unloaded at the capital minutes before the speech ended and seconds before the “insurrection”. All allegedly filled to the brim with disguised Antifa, BLM, and other less known representatives of Soros….all fired up and chomping at the bit to raise hell and heading towards the capital building. I could be persuaded to find the links if requested, but it won’t be tonight. I gotta work in the morning to pay for leftist causes and funding the weaponization of viruses so they can be released against us 🐑🐑🐑

      • Not so. The next day, the FBI told of who they arrested. No Trump supporters. They may have been arrested after that, as they were arresting people just standing outside, looking in. This was a set up. Civilian videos shows a quiet, mild crowd chanting USA! USA! and suddenly the guards started shooting smoke bombs right at the people. That is what started it. Pelosi wanted to blame Trump and impeach him, and she did.

  6. Today, someone who was at the capitol ‘insurrection’ of Jan 6, was sentenced to 8 MONTHS penal time! This person shot NO one, assaulted NO one, threatened NO one, and did NO damage whatsoever! What was the charge? Simple trespassing, nothing more! This sentence is INSANELY RIDICULOUS, considering that RIOTERS who previously did all that damage, arson, and assaults have been released without any charges! This is the ULTIMATE idiotic irony that one could expect of our ridiculous judicial system presently controlled by the liberals!

    • Actually, the serious part of the crime was being a Trump supporter who believe the elections was fraudulent. Now if he had been an ANTIFA member, he’d have been released with an apology.

      • Antifa website told members to wear Trump hats and infiltrate the crowd. The joke is on them. They are being punished because they are believed to be Trump supporters. The joke is funny as heck..

  7. Who said, name names, there was gun fire at the insurrection on January 6, 2021? I have seen videos of the insurrectionists wielding baseball bats, hockey sticks, dosing police with some spray (I personally don’t know what type of spray). If I tried to poke you in the eye with a metal pole, would you count that as a weapon? I have seen videos of fire extinguishers being sprayed on officers. The only kissing,I know of, was kissing up to Donald Trump! I apologize, but I was thinking this was a gun owners site.

    • They were not insurrectionists,in fact no such charges have been made against anyone. They were legitimate protesters against an obviously stolen election,there to demand Congress not certify illigitimate electors. The Dems do this every time a Republican is elected president then declare foreign interference got him elected to deligitimize his term in office yet call it patriotic when they do it.

      • Actually, Mike Lindell has proof that the machines were on the internet, and China and other countries cheated. China wanted Joe because he can be manipulated. They are all afraid of Trump.

  8. The article addressed the issue of FIREARMS. CAPISCE? The former Mayor of DC. Browser said there were THOUSANDS of Trump supporters with firearms at the riot.

    Now I suppose you have a problem with gun owners and supporters sites. Do you want them banned?

    • Who or what are you going to believe your eyes or the lies of a failed mayor. There were no guns confiscated according to a fbi official.

  9. “Riot” was a figment of the Dems’ imagination and the treatment of those arrested would remind most people about North Korea’s treatment of POW’s from the Korean War and the crew of the ship USS Pueblo. Every Amendment of the Constitution has been maliciously violated including the Eighth which prohibits “Cruel and Unusual Punishment” – and for what? – by the jail staff who prefer to do like the North Koreans do. I hear that two have pled “guilty” of some charges. Were those pleas extracted by threats of more torture? That would be Compulsory Self Incrimination but Big Brother knows that.

  10. Isn’t it interesting and a bit strange, that when buildings are being burned down and businesses are lotted, and people are being beaten police have fireworks bottled water, bricks, and rocks and shot by liberal thugs? The Democrats call them peaceful protesters and no one is arrested and convicted. But when conservatives go into a building and don’t destroy, burn, loot, or beat anyone. They’re called “RIOTERS” and are arrested and being tried. How long will we put up with these people till we act like them?

  11. The whole thing was a set-up by Pelosi. She assumed that it was Trump people that warned of violence, so planned to let him destroy things, so she could impeach him again. Home videos shown on Facebook, shows a mild crowd, standing with flags, chanting “USA! USA! USA”
    Then the police started shooting nerve bombs right at the people standing there. That made them mad, so then they stormed the capitol. Antifa was the ones in black who were crawling the walls.

  12. When are you ignorant people going to realize this is a Pelosi insurrection put into high gear when she walked out of a presidential meeting waving her finger at Trump. Hell hath no fury like a women scorned. I think there is a passage in the Bible about not to put a woman in a position of power.

  13. ITS ALL A PELOSI SET UP ONLY SHOTS FIRED WERE THOSE BY CAPITOL POLICE THAT KILLED THE WOMAN CLIMBING IN THE WINDOW …
    Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, or Kamala Harris, are all liars when it comes to what they want to do to America …

    • I KNOW it was a set up. People in the crowd took videos, and they were standing still, chanting “USA USA
      The guards suddenly started shooting smoke bombs right into the packed crowd. That riled the crowd, and they started the “Insurrection”. Pelosi wanted to impeach Trump so her guards started riling them up. She did impeach.

  14. I believe the Democrats orchestrated the lack of security and that there were indeed pretenders in the group just as we know that the BLM protests were orchestrated by funding being covertly paid to BLM and all those thugs out there committing crimes. We heard the same things happened in other places where outsiders came into the area and then the violence and vandalism began. We all know Susan Goldberg, a known terrorists was funneling money and of George Soros name keeps popping up and he’s a proponent of socialism.
    I believe that many of the Democrats are sick people, sexual predators, power hungry psychos and greedy beyond reason. And this weakness and their perverse desires are being exploited by outsiders and foreign powers. The level of corruption and disregard for the Constitution is shameful and they will never achieve total power because none of them will share their fortunes, but backstab, steal and destroy their rivals just to get a little more power or a better position.
