Peter James Boby, a staffer for Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), was arrested by Capitol Hill police after he was found with a loaded, unregistered gun in his car.

Peter James Boby, a staffer for Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), was arrested after authorities found a loaded .45 caliber handgun in his vehicle during a routine security screening, a police spokeswoman confirmed.

Boby was arrested outside the Cannon House Office Building around 2 p.m. He is charged with carrying a pistol without a license, carrying an unregistered firearm and carrying unregister ammunition.

Nice one. Of course, I'm sure this will cause Rep. Hunter -- a card-carrying NRA-loving right-winger -- to howl about how unfair and antiConstitutional it all is.

Mr. Boby is reported to be an ex-Marine. He should know better.
