Some lawmakers abandon the courage of their convictions the moment they are elected. Others hit the ground running. Lauren Boebert of Colorado is SOLIDLY in the second category.
While some swamp rats will shuffle off to Washington only to give a thumbs-down to their own primary campaign promises at the 11th hour, Colorado’s Lauren Boebert has substance behind her words.
But then, we already KNEW she was kinda scrappy, didn’t we? Open-Carry Restaurant In Colorado Opens Up Defying Cease And Desist Order
She is all about a citizen’s right to own and carry a firearm and her first days in Washington have already reflected that.
Our Constitutional right to bear arms exists even in places that reject this fundamental principle. https://t.co/QEOQo0WHCa

After she is sworn in in January, Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) could join an unknown number of lawmakers who also carry firearms in the Capitol, which is permitted under congressional regulations.
Boebert aide Laura Carno told the AP in an email last week that “this was a private discussion and inquiry about what the rules are, and as a result the Congresswoman-Elect won’t be going on the record.”
…Capitol Police spokeswoman Eva Malecki did not immediately respond to the AP’s or The Hill’s request for comment on Boebert’s request or the number of lawmakers who currently carry guns in the Capitol.
According to a 1967 regulation, federal and D.C. laws cannot “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.” –TheHill
Maybe if word got out that a few more like her carried, the next maniac with a political ax to grind will think twice before showing up at baseball practice.
