Brooks said the legislation would allow members of Congress be armed in places throughout Washington where average citizens typically can not carry guns.

"Right now when we're in Washington, D.C., once we're off the complex ... we're still high-profile targets, but we have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.'s rather restrictive gun laws", Brooks, R-Ala., told Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures". However, it was Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise that was most seriously injured in the attack before Capitol Police killed the shooter.

"I want Congressmen to be treated as if they were law enforcement, given that we're high profile targets for the bad guys, the lone wolves, the terrorists, and I'll be introducing legislation to that effect this week". Hodgkinson, who had denounced President Trump on Facebook, often using profanity, was from Belleville, Ill., and was seen hanging around the ball field in the weeks leading up to the shooting.

A list of names was found on Hodgkinson at the scene, which included Brooks and other Republican congressmen.

"I'm very much concerned by that", Brooks said of being targeted.

"You've got a situation where, yes, this one shooter has been killed, but he's a member of an organization that applauded what transpired on Wednesday", Brooks said. "And so those of us who are on this assassination list ... it behooves us to be a little bit more wary than we otherwise might be".
