Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert is a newly elected member of the U.S. House. At five-foot-nothing and 100 pounds, this attractive 34-year-old is no one to mess with. In her campaign ad “I will carry my Glock to Congress” with the Capitol as a backdrop, she announces proudly, “Even though I work in one of the most liberal cities in America, I refuse to give up my rights.”
Appearing on Fox, she noted how interesting it was that something as straightforward as the Second Amendment could be the center of so much controversy. “It’s right there in our Constitution…I’m now in one of the most dangerous cities in America…The violent crime rate here is 158% higher than the national average.”
She pointed out that she doesn’t go to work in an armored vehicle and has no personal escort. She is her own security, and she intends to exercise her basic right to defend herself.
Boebert’s pro-Second Amendment stance attracted the attention of liberal Washington, DC’s metro police chief, Robert Contee. With apparently nothing better to do, he plans to reach out to her office to intimidate and try to persuade her against carrying a firearm in his town, along with making sure she is aware of the gun laws on the books in the District of Columbia.
His implied threat was simple: She will be harassed by his minions if she conceal carries in his town and would be “subject to the same penalties” as anyone else in the district caught packing heat.
Why this would be the first order of business for Contee, who just got the job, wasn’t clear. He should, as the saying goes, be out after real criminals.
