“This didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me,” [Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson] said in an interview on WISN-AM with conservative talk radio show host Jay Weber after condemning the events at the U.S. Capitol that day.
“I mean ‘armed,’ when you hear ‘armed,’ don’t you think of firearms? Here’s the questions I would have liked to ask. How many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired? I’m only aware of one, and I’ll defend that law enforcement officer for taking that shot. It was a tragedy, OK? But I think there was only one.”
