The National Guard has had a massive presence in Washington, DC for months.
The very people saying defund the police and trying to enact more gun control have been surrounding themselves with men armed with guns this entire time.
Now it is reportedly coming to an end, finally.
National Guard to End Deployment in D.C.
The National Guard’s deployment in Washington, D.C. will end Sunday after troops were called to the Capitol following the Jan. 6 riot.
More than 2,000 National Guard troops are set to return to their home bases this week after the Department of Defense did not request an extended stay for the force to guard the nation’s capital…
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin approved a request in March to have nearly 2,300 National Guardsmen remain at the Capitol through May 23.
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said following the extension that it had been made “after a thorough review of the request and after close consideration of its potential impact on readiness.”
He added during a Pentagon briefing that the extension was granted to “help bolster and support the Capitol Police and their capabilities, which may not be at the level where it needs to be given the fact that we’re in sort of a new environment in this country.”
The good news? It only cost us half a billion dollars.
Just over 1,000 National Guard members remain in DC to protect the Capitol after their mission following the Capitol Riot ran up a bill topping $500 million.https://t.co/FDOL2mV1m9

This was all theater. This was the Democrats reminding everyone that they are in charge.
