As we all know, the only right that matters to the Right is the right to be packing heat, always:
Several incoming House freshmen have inquired about carrying guns into the Capitol, leading a board overseeing congressional security to rethink a regulation banning members from packing heat under the dome, a House aide with direct knowledge of the board review told Axios….
What we’re hearing: Some incoming Republican members have complained about not being able to bring firearms into the Capitol building, the focus of at least two questions asked in November during new-member training on Capitol Hill.
- The AP reported that Lauren Boebert, a Republican congresswoman-elect from Colorado who often carries a Glock and owns a gun-themed restaurant, privately asked Capitol Police about the rules for carrying a gun.
- Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) told Axios he’s been privately lobbying Capitol Police against guns in the Capitol. He tweeted his concerns on Sunday night after Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) tweeted that Joe Biden’s inauguration would be the “first hour of conspiracy to dismantle America.”
This is not going to end well.
