U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert’s team produced a cheeky social media video defending the 2nd Amendment and the right to carry a gun in Washington, DC
Let me tell you why I’ll be wearing my Glock to Congress.
The government must NOT tell me or my constituents how we can protect our families.
I promise to always stand up for our 2nd right to change. Http://t.de/co/E75tYpdN4B pic.twitter.com/qg7QGenrNo

Boebert starts the video in a studio where she gets her Glock and walks out the door. The scene shows her walking the streets of Capitol Hill, where members of Congress are allowed to carry guns.
But there is a scene in which she walks down a nondescript alley that could be in the district with a gun tucked in her jacket.
The video sent Beltway reporters to their passed out couches, clutching their pearls.
After recovering, they introduced her to a press conference with DC Police Chief Robert Contee III, and then made headlines like this on the Denver Post alleging the new congressman had problems with the law.
The Washington, DC police chief says he will speak to Lauren Boebert about the gun video
The boss won’t just go to her office and talk to her.
He has someone in his office who goes to their office to clarify District of Columbia law for carrying a hidden firearm.
Your response to the boss’s comments is classic:
“I don’t know if he will contact every single person to make sure they are complying with all traffic laws. If I said I was going to Washington DC, he might have to call me and find out about their traffic rules. To think that I didn’t know about the DC carry laws just because I said I’ll wear them is a little absurd. “
