Lauren Boebert’s Glock Takes Shot At Anti-2nd Amendment Democrats
“Even though I now work in one of the most liberal cities in America, I refuse to give up my rights, especially my Second Amendment rights,”
She added that as a mother-of-four who’s just five-foot-tall and 100 pounds, “I choose to defend my family with all of the force the Constitution provides.”
Let me tell you why I WILL carry my Glock to Congress.
Government does NOT get to tell me or my constituents how we are allowed to keep our families safe.

The District of Columbia has strict gun-control laws.
After Boebert’s announcement, reporters asked Washington Police Chief Robert Contee about the new congresswoman’s plans.
Members of Congress are allowed to carry a gun on Capitol grounds, but Contee said he will inform Boebert that she’s subject to the same penalties as anyone else if she’s found with a concealed firearm elsewhere in the city.
A member of Congress is permitted to carry a gun at the Capitol, as long as it’s stored in the lawmaker’s office and unloaded while being transported.
