Carol Reuss: Over-the-top Jones

Regarding the Dec. 19 news article “Congress and Obama sign off on spending bill”: Rep. Walter Jones’ reaction to not getting his way on the budget was to pull out a sword. Granted, he was in his office, not on the floor of the House, but his action makes me wonder whether he has been recruited by ISIS or is a Star Wars wannabe.

Regardless, he gives a poor example to susceptible people who might be tempted to think weapons are the way to get what you want.
