Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit was shot and killed as protestors sought to breach a cordon walling off a restricted area, in an event that left many questioning why lethal force was utilized against the unarmed protestor.
It’s still unclear what happened the three unnamed individuals Contee revealed died at the protest. Rumors have suggested that two men and one woman died, with one suffering a heart attack after being tased by Capitol police.
Two supposed explosive devices were also found in the vicinity of the Capitol on Wednesday, planted near the RNC and Democratic National Committee headquarters. Law enforcement is yet to determine if the devices are authentic.

The loss of life appears to have been avoidable, and represents a great tragedy.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
