From Talking Points Memo:
U.S. Capitol Police arrested an intern for Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS) Monday morning when he allegedly tried to carry an unloaded gun into a House office building.
Joshua Wheeler, 25, of Atchison, Kansas, was charged with carrying a pistol without a license and possessing an unregistered firearm and taken into custody, according to U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Kimberly Schneider. She said that a search of Wheeler, required for entry into congressional buildings, allegedly turned up an unloaded Smith & Wesson 9 mm handgun.
Jenkin's office called Wheeler's behavior "poor judgment," according to NBC News' Kelly O'Donnell.
