Lauren Boebert has proven that you can beat the swamp, when you actually bother to fight.
The newly-elected Republican famously ran a restaurant in Colorado where she let her staff open carry.
When she was preparing to head to D.C., she made it clear that she would be carrying a firearm for protection. (D.C., as you know, is not the safest place in the world.)
Democrats wanted to quickly change House rules so that Boebert specifically was unable to bring a gun.
She fought back, urging Republicans to join her cause. And she just scored a major victory.
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) received the Washington, DC, concealed carry permit she told Breitbart News she was pursuing in December.
She said, “I’ve already gone through the concealed carry firearm courses to obtain a Washington, DC, permit,” stressing that she would be her own security in dangerous, Democrat-run D.C…
On January 28, 2021, Breitbart News noted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) suggestion House Members who carry guns for self-defense are the “enemy within.”
Democrats wanted to prevent House members from carrying firearms, by amending a longstanding rule.
Republicans agreed to back Boebert after she sent them a letter opposing the change. Democrats made it clear they were specifically targeting Boebert, who made it plain she would be carrying.
The rule apparently was not changed, but Democrats still put heat on Boebert.
Pelosi even claimed that House members—citizens of the United States who have the same rights as you and me—are “enemies” if they carry a gun. Even a woman who wants to carry for self-defense.
Does Pelosi even care about the safety and well-being of her colleagues? We doubt she cares about Americans, considering how she stalled COVID relief for months.
But to attack her own House over something as simple as carrying a firearm for self-defense sounds ludicrous.
Boebert won the day after securing a permit to conceal carry. She will be able to carry a firearm with her at all times, for the interest of self-defense.
Hopefully, she will never have to use it. But I’m sure plenty of Democrats will be happy she has it, if she does.
