Anomalies in the Capitol Melee

At this point, all I see is that these people are being charged with offenses like trespass, disorderly conduct, and theft. Judging by what leftists are saying and what the mainstream press is reporting, these people should be charged with treason, insurrection, revolution, rebellion, invasion, terrorism, and an attempt to violently overthrow the government of the United States. How come the Justice Department doesn't realize that, at least not yet?

In fact, I'm surprised that leftists and the mainstream press aren't insisting that all the protestors, including those on both the inside and outside of the Capitol, be charged with a gigantic conspiracy to violently overthrow the U.S. government. Maybe they're concerned about being labeled "conspiracy theorists."

One of the fascinating aspects of this supposed attempt to conquer the U.S. government is the small amount of bloodshed. In fact, only one person was shot during the melee. That's incredible. Wouldn't you think that revolutionaries would enter the Capitol with all guns blaring, including M-16s, AK-47s, and Glock semiautomatic handguns?

Well, the left has an explanation for this phenomenon: Washington, D.C.'s, strict gun control laws. You see, the idea is that the reason that the revolutionaries didn't commit a mass killing in the Capitol, like at Columbine, was because D.C.'s gun-control laws prohibit people from openly carrying guns.
