“If Rep. Lauren Boebert will not submit to security protocols like any other American she should be denied entrance into the Capitol,” CNN legal analyst Shanlon Wu said via Twitter.
“The First Amendment allows her to be loudmouth – it does not allow her to carry firearms illegally [and] be above the law.”.
On Tuesday night, she declined to show Capitol security guards what she had in her bag, prompting a brief standoff that ended with officers’ begrudgingly admitting the far-right Colorado Republican.
A similar scene played out again on Wednesday, which she quickly broadcast to her adoring fans on social media.
As a Capitol Police officer shouted at her to stop, she didn’t miss a beat and kept on walking.
Well, no surprise—5 Republican law and order members set off the magnetometer and then refused to be wanded.”.
While Boebert is allowed to carry a gun on the U.S. Capitol Complex, internal rules prohibit carrying weapons on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. »
