    Guns are allowed, so I recommend a compromise. Invent a gun that shoots tampons. Then when they try to take it, scream about the 2nd Amendment.

    She would leave the room regardless, and in this case retrieve her property.

    I think it was justifiable given the rumor and speculation that they were going to use them to throw at the legislature.

    So if they were going to use them as weapons, they're "arms." Don't people have a right to bear those? The 2nd Amendment says arms, not guns.

    That's a far stretching argument. You have the right to bear "arms" but not to disrupt a legislature. Tossing tampons and pads during a legislature is not acceptable and it's reasonable for them to confiscate them.

    But if they brought guns and brandished them just before the vote, that would be OK?

    Feces have no expectation to be used in a healthy manner, but tampons do. Any protester or woman in general around would have been presumed to have thrown unused (important there as well) products at the legislature before the event. There is some discrimination that could have been employed here.

    If they had a legal carry license why not? If they planned on tossing their guns or shooting people then of course the should be confiscated.

    So lethal force is OK, but non-lethal force isn't?
