Lauren Boebert, a Republican who was recently elected as a representative of western Colorado to the United States Congress, said Sunday night that she plans to carry a weapon to the lower house. Boebert did not mince words in her tweet.
“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. … I promise to always stand strong for our 2nd Amendment rights,” Boebert tweeted.
Then the congresswoman, who said she is 5-foot tall and 100 pounds, can be seen chambering a clip for her Glock pistol and placing the gun in a concealed holster underneath her jacket.
Lauren Boebert has been arrested four times and is under investigation for “unlawfully providing a handgun to a juvenile” who worked at her Colorado restaurant. She was with her husband when he was arrested for exposing his penis to a minor. Not exactly a law-abiding gun owner. https://t.co/7GvjheCLk2

To be fair, she *was* a minor (17) and witnessed his indecent exposure. She went on to marry him the year after his arrest. https://t.co/9R45T8QP3J

She lied about campaign finances. Hasn’t paid taxes for her restaurant that also gave a ton of people food poisoning. She’s bff with Marjorie Greene. Oh and her husband was arrested for assault a few days after the bowling alley incident. Which they have now been banned from. pic.twitter.com/R2gUe1BZE2

My favorite part is when she is walking past the garages of $1M+ Capitol Hill town homes talking about how dangerous DC is. pic.twitter.com/Yg6XOdlZ2H
