Reps. Gowdy, Buck Under Fire For AR-15 Photo
Two congressmen are under fire for holding a patriotic firearm.
Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) tweeted a photo of himself and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) holding an American flag-patterned AR-15 in a House office.

The D.C. attorney general is now looking into this photo, saying that the two men may have violated the city’s strict gun laws.
But Buck says he has permission from Capitol Police to keep his unloaded gun on display, calling it nothing more than a “patriotic paperweight.”
