Gun-Toting Representative Elect Already Has First Victory On Capitol Hill

If all you watch is the mainstream media, then you might think that gun control has overwhelming support and that gun control activists are consistently winning ground.

Granted, gun control supporting politicians win sometimes, usually in states which lean left politically, but anti-gunners don’t win every time.

And, sometimes, gun rights activists win in ways that are fun personal snubs to anti-gunners.

One such win goes to Representative-elect Lauren Boebert of Colorado. You may remember her as the owner of a restaurant that allows open carry on the premises and the Representative who wanted to carry her Glock on Capitol Hill (see here and here for more on that).

So, the nice little personal snub to anti-gunners in Washington? Boebert won a challenge to her right to carry at Capitol Hill. F. Riehl writes,

Newly elected Rep. Boebert Scores First Congressional Victory! This past weekend Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) released the following statement after the passage of the H. Res. 8 – the Rules of the House of Representatives for the 117th Congress:

“I ran for Congress and have now taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution. That fight began in earnest as House Democrats attempted to stop Members of Congress from exercising their Second Amendment rights. I led eighty-two of my colleagues in fighting back, and we won. I promise I will never stop defending your Constitutional rights.”

It’s refreshing to see this kind of boldness for gun rights, for any kind of Constitutionally-protected right, in Congress.

The sad part is that new blood had to be sent to Washington to get this type of fighting spirit to show up, but the more representatives like Boebert that Americans send to Washington, the more likely that we can begin to start forcing the bureaucrats in Washington to keep their hands out of our pockets and off of our liberties, and that’s a cause worth working for.

  1. We need many more like her. Americans need to let the left know that We the People won’t stand by while they sell us down the river!

  2. Thank you Representative Boebert, it’s good to know the congresswoman carries more than most congressmen.Great to see a politician that cares for the people and our once free nation!

  3. Congratulations, Lauren. It is high time that Congresspersons remember that the oath everyone from a patrolman to the president takes binds them to protect, defend and preserve the Constitution of the United States, and that means the entire Constitution, not just the ;parts that they agree with. A tip of the hat and a hearty Thank you to all the people who worked and voted with you to preserve your Second Amendment rights. We will be watching for great things from you ion the future.

    • Amen to that! In fact, as another article in this set points out, it is gun rights that bring about racial and gender equality. It is necessary to drive this home in no uncertain terms.

  4. I have nothing against carrying weapons…what bothers me is the number of illegal firearms that are around and nothing can be done with that problem…taking away legal guns is not helping to get rid of the illegal gun ownership…

    • You are absolutely right. Taking guns away from the honest citizens simply provides easy victims to the criminals ans politicians know that and have known it for decades. The real reason for anti-gun laws is power ***over*** the People. The anti’s also take us for fools as well. I am quite familiar with the old fable about the camel with the cold nose a k a “The Arab And His Camel.” First the camel wanted his nose in the tent to keep it warm; then his head, then his shoulder, then one leg and at dawn the camel had the tent all to himself. Back when I was in grade school the teacher read us the story and we discussed it in class. That is the sole purpose of all anti-gun laws and the crime/homicide rate is only the excuse. Anti-gun politicians know that and don’t care the north end of a southbound rat about it; it’s all about power. Well, we ***ain’t*** giving up the tent.

  5. Keep up the good work Lauren! Now it’s time for National Reciprocity for We The People who carry and Constitutional Carry Nationwide. Then it’s on to repealing every single Unconstitutional Firearm “law” on the books(which is all of them).

  6. You go lady—-
    you are a perfect example of the kind of representatives we need in D.C..
    As they say “OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW”
    We need to get rid of all those old dinosaurs that have made it a profession to line their pockets instead of re[resenting WE THE PEOPLE like they were ELECTED TO DO.
    We also need to get rid of the AOC and her kind who want to destroy our country with their insane GREEN NEW DEAL—ya–ask Texas how that worked for them last week.
    And we need to take over and elect a new Speaker of the House and then impeach every one of the radicles in the Congress and Senate who promoted violence through their speech–the ones who screamed to impeach President Trump then while they are at it they need to impeach scumalla and the brain dead puppet call Biden and get out country back to where President Trump was taking us.
    “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”

  7. Thank you Representative Boebert, keep it up … never give in! Thank for going to the washington swamp and kicking so butt!! Washington need more representative like you! You give the rest of us 2nd Amendment supporters hope!
