New Congresswoman Explains Why She Refuses To Relinquish Her Gun: ‘I Am My Own Security’

Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert defended her now-viral ad, in which she said she would carry her handgun in Washington, D.C., despite pushback from the Metropolitan Police Department chief.

The newly elected Colorado lawmaker and owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, appeared on the Fox News program “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to discuss her right to carry her Glock handgun in Washington.

“It’s right there in our Constitution. It’s an amendment to our Constitution, and there’s an absolute uproar over people wanting to defend myself,” Boebert said.

“I mean, come on. I’m 5-foot, 100 pounds. I am now in one of the most dangerous cities in America. The violent crime rate here is 158 percent times higher than the national average. I will be walking alone a lot.” Via – The Western Journal
