Republican Lauren Boebert vows to carry a handgun to Congress

Republican Lauren Boebert vows to carry a handgun to Congress

January 5, 2021: Republican Lauren Boebert is shown loading a firearm before walking around the city in a video released on Sunday.

“I will carry my firearm in DC and Congress,” she says in the video, which has been viewed over two million times.

But the city’s police chief will speak to Ms. Boebert about the strict rules on carrying firearms.

Ms. Boeber is the owner of the restaurants in Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, where staff members are encouraged to carry weapons, as is permitted under the state’s laws openly.

The issue of gun rights formed a crucial part of her campaign for last November’s election.

“Even though I now work in one of the most liberal cities in America, I refuse to give up my rights,” Ms. Boebert says in the video posted on Twitter on Sunday.

“So, as a five-foot-tall, 100-pound woman, I choose to protect myself legally because I am my best security.”

But police were quick to respond, with Washington DC Police Chief Robert Contee tells reporters: “That Congresswoman will be subjected to the same penalties as anyone else that’s caught on the DC streets carrying a firearm.”

Members of Congress are allowed to keep unloaded firearms in their offices and transport them in washington DC. However, the permit to carry a gun is mandatory in the city streets. Weapons from other states must be registered with local authorities.
