Lauren Boebert Holds The Line — Refuses to allow Capitol Police to search for her Glock

This chick is as fierce as Matt Gaetz’s hair. More!

CFP: Several House Republicans sidestepped newly-installed metal detectors outside the chamber doors Tuesday, simply ignoring the machines when they were set off. The GOP lawmakers are objecting to the new machines, which are directly outside the House chamber and were added as a security precaution following last week.

The defiance was highlighted by what was described as a “standoff” between U.S. Capitol police and a freshman congresswoman who has previously asserted she has the right to carry a firearm into the building.

The House sergeant at arms office on Tuesday issued a statement saying all members and others going into the chamber must be screened for prohibited items, including firearms, and anyone failing to wear a mask on the House floor would be removed.

Members of Congress previously had free roam at the Capitol, with the ability to bypass most security screening stations at most entrances to the building and inside.

Lauren Boebert of Colorado reportedly ended up in a stalemate with Capitol security Tuesday after refusing to hand over her bag after setting off the metal detector. Ryan Nobles tweeted that Boebert, who has said she plans to carry her gun in D.C. and the Capitol, walked through the detector with her bag, which set off the alarm. She refused to hand over her bag to Capitol police, so officers refused to let her enter until they get to see what is inside. more here

  1. She might be as fierce as Matt Ga(y)etz’s hair BUTT my Petey B says there’s nothing as fierce as my unbleached elastic starfish!

  2. So here’s what will happen… Some asswipe will bust into her office, find her gun, go out into the hall and shoot someone, then Congress will eject her. Game over.

  3. Constitution of the U.S. – Article 1 – Section 6:

    The Senators and Representatives…shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

    She was “going to” the House. I would have preferred it if she’d just kept walking. I should print up a handful of cards with the above text so she can hand them out to the unconstitutional enforcers trying to stop her.

  4. It’s only the start for taking your guns. Of course for the greater good…so your all rights will be erased step by step in ‘sweet words’. Open your eyes and don’t let them fool you! it’s china propaganda aim to live in a china like society. fascism and cannibalism.

  5. It makes perfect and rational sense for her to hold the ground on her legal and moral rights. To do otherwise is an admission that some Marxist bully can enforce whatever arbitrary and capricious rulz they want, whenever they want. Like a LOT of commie governors we all know.

  6. If more of them carried they could help put down any radicals from killing them all. Na, maybe not – that’s a bad idea for the good of our nation.

  7. How many pass through with their “private” security? It’s OK to hire someone to protect you, but you can not protect yourself.
    How many have “private” security that “we” pay for.

  8. I have a suggestion. Because we don’t have a DOWN THUMB option, for the obsessed starfish creep, and ONLY for that creep, we regard an UP THUMB as a DOWN THUMB. Let’s see how high we can get that number.

  9. Members didn’t have to go through detectors before I retired.
    She should be parking inside the Cannon, Rayburn, or the East or West Undergrounds and she won’t have to put up with any of their shit.

    Members usually park inside.

    The detectors were only at the pedestrian entrances (I’ve been gone for 12 years). It’s all a lot of bullshit. Sonny Montgomery kept a full-auto AK-47 in his office (mounted) and that Rockefeller asshole from WVa kept an M-16. Most of the labor supervisors kept pistols to keep from being knifed.
    I’m sure they’ve cracked down on a lot of that.

    The SS and FBI never have questions about their armament – even though they’re in Legislative territory.

  10. …seems like at least ONE guy was inside the chambers with a gun the other day, as unarmed Ashli Babbitt could tell you if she wasn’t entirely dead as a result…

  11. anyone should be allowed 2 protect themselves from the capitol badge-dindus…

    news flash:
    .capitol polees awarded 2021 david a. burke memorial trophy by congress-dindu-caucus for shooting a yt
    .blm & naacp members give thnx 2 their allah

  12. “Well-behaved women seldom make history.”

    Isn’t this an Article of Faith for religious Leftists, used to empower and champion the women who challenge the status quo?

  13. Ashli Babbitt was killed so they would have proof that it was Trump supporters in the capitol.
    Not anyone else???????

  14. @burner:

    @UncleAl – breach of the peace is what they say it is when she doesn’t comply (submit, obey, etc.)

    Perhaps she could derail that before it happens by telling the enforcer, “I am peacefully going into the House chamber and by obstructing me you are in breach of the peace.

    She should then add, “Sargeant-at-Arms, arrest this man!” pointing to the enforcer blocking her path, but I suppose that would be asking too much. (-:
