What Happens When a US Lawmaker Refuses to Give Up Her Sidearm?

The people’s right to keep and bear arms, as granted to us in the Second Amendment of our Constitution, plays a fundamental role in defining who we are as a nation. However, it is no secret that certain progressives are intent on weakening this most sacred privilege.

Year after year, The Left continues to slowly chip away at the ability of ordinary US citizens to enjoy our guaranteed freedoms. Luckily, many individuals are on the right side of history — like incoming Rep. Lauren Boebert, who is willing to stand firm against those who want to see our rights trampled.

Boebert is a freshman congresswoman from the Third Congressional District of Colorado and a proud gun owner who vowed to bring her Glock to Congress while running for her seat. But the vow wasn’t just empty campaign rhetoric to win over voters. Boebert has been an outspoken supporter of the Second Amendment for years, and even owns a restaurant named Shooters Grill in the town of Rifle (yes, really).

While Boebert is not the first congressperson to decide to carry a pistol, she is perhaps the most upfront about it. It is that openness that is causing trouble in D.C.

A1967 regulation states that no laws “shall prohibit any Member of Congress from maintaining firearms within the confines of his office” or “from transporting within Capitol grounds firearms unloaded and securely wrapped.”

Politico reported that Robert Contee III, the Washington, D.C. police chief, already stated that he discussed the gun-carrying laws in the capital. Contee said he reminded Boebert “that the Congresswoman will be subjected to the same penalties as anyone else that’s caught on the D.C. streets carrying a firearm.”

During a Fox News segment, Boebert criticized Contee’s for his remarks, saying that she found it “very interesting” the newly appointed chief’s first order of business was to “come after a 34-year old woman who wants to protect herself in this dangerous city.” She mocked the chief for saying he wanted to make sure she knew the laws for carrying a sidearm in D.C., and jokingly suggested that she announce her intent to drive in D.C. so that Comtee can explain to her the traffic laws in the nation’s capital.

Despite the blowback from the progressives, Boebert stands by her commitment to carry. She recently tweeted, “Government does NOT get to tell me or my constituents how we are allowed to keep our families safe.” In an interview on Fox News, Boehbert once again laid out her reasoning for wanting to carry a sidearm, saying she is a woman in one of the most dangerous cities in the US and is ultimately responsible for her own protection.

The topic of Congress members legally carrying a gun in the capitol building only became more complicated and critical with the recent shooting of a protestor inside the Capitol Building.

  1. For one thing,the cops shot and killed an unarmed woman and should be tried,along with the D.C. mayor,and sued by her family for her wrongful death.Secondly,The Demonrats,to include COMRADES BIDEN,PELOSI, PENCE,AND THE REST OF THE TRAITORS,are responsible for what happened in D.C.
    As for a new congresswoman carrying her weapon ,I applaud her for that and for and pardon the pun,sticking to her guns, on her CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS

    1. our forefathers had it all correct. That is why the second amendment is so worded. A firearm(GUN) has never shot anyone by it SELF. It takes someone to discharge the said offence object. The anti-gunners have no right to ban guns used to protect said person(s) or used to feed their selves. It has been proven that there is people who use a firearm to comet crimes. They are not law bidding persons and only those persons stand to be unlawful not the firearm. remember our forefathers and their wisedom

  2. Thank you BOEBERT! . . . It’s about TIME someone STOOD UP for the 2nd amendment in one of the most DANGEROUS cities (except CHICAGO and NEW YORK, other Democrat strongholds). The Democrats have NEVER stood for LAW AND ORDER, so therefore WE must PROTECT ourselves, And, DEMOCRATS are PROOF POSITIVE that we MUST protect ourselves from TYRANNICAL RULE. May the 2nd Amendment live forever! It ALWAYS will, especially if the individual STATES proclaim themselves 2nd Amendment SANCTUARIES regardless of FEDERAL LAW. The Federal law does not follow our U.S. Constitution (except as they see FIT which is dangerous), It’s time that we stood up for OURSELVES, We The People. One Enlightened And DISGUSTED Patriot. Team Trump and His Allies 2020 – Forever.

  3. How refreshing, a person with some backbone in a city where that trait is very hard to find. Three cheers or more for Boebert.

  4. Our deepest thanks congresswoman Boebert. Now we pray in Colorado that you can stay strong and help us to accomplish what we need to do to recover this great country especially after such massive voter fraud.

  5. Start aurvey and petition regarding the desires of the people who do not want socialism dictatorship in this nation in any way shape or form. The purpose of this is to inform and establish grounds for a class action suit to bring back our rights and values in we have long cherished!
