This is a direct assault on our Republic. Not only did they attempt to illegally gain entry in to the AZ State Senate offices and senate per se (à la the Kavanaugh Hearings), they also did not allow the senate members and workers in the facility to leave the premises.

"Violent anti-abortion protestors attempts of an insurrection at the Arizona State Senate were thwarted Friday night, thanks to the swift action from local and state law enforcement,' the Arizona State Senate said in a press release.
“Protesters threatened to break the AZ Senate entryway glass,” Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted.
Police used tear gas to disperse the protestors and regain control of the building, according to Fox News.
“We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building due to members of the public trying to breach our security,” State Senator Kelly Townsend wrote on Twitter."
"One Senator compared the violence to the breach of the United States Capitol that occurred on January 6, 2021.
“I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately,” she said on Twitter.
“Extremist demonstrators made their way to the entrance of the Senate building and began forcibly trying to make entry by breaking down windows and pushing down doors,” according to the Arizona State Senate press release."
