Hired Guns?

Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just keeping calm?
Rule #1 in politics: Never bring a knife to a gun fight. And if Peter Roskam is any indication, never bring a knife to a high school debate, either.

Haha, this week Peter Roskam met with high school students to discuss gun violence. But Roskam (Lake County's vestigial Congressman) failed to tell anyone that he would be bringing along some pro-gun students:
One month after declining to participate in a 6th Congressional district town hall on gun violence prevention organized by area high school students, Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam met with a group of teens to discuss the topic in a closed-door session Saturday in Wheaton. In addition to the six students from Glenbard North, South and West high schools, five of whom originally requested the meeting after the town hall, Roskam added three pro-gun rights students from Wheaton Academy to the closed meeting — something the town hall students said they did not expect.
In closed-door meeting, Roskam brings pro-gun rights teens to talk gun violence prevention with students
Note to Ops: To date, Peter Roskam is the only Illinois politician known to take his gunsels to work with him.
