The National Guard continues demonstrating a show of force after violent riots took place on Capitol Hill last week in the building by a group of Trump supporters.

Outside the Capitol, National Guard soldiers were spotted Wednesday morning unloading racks of rifles and pistols as well as anti-riot gear.
