She is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and is planning to carry a gun for her safety when she is in Washington, DC.

After what we saw over the summer, who can blame her?

“You know, it’s very interesting that here in the United States of America that there is so much controversy over our Second Amendment rights,” Boebert told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning.

It’s right there in our Constitution. It’s an amendment to our Constitution. And there’s an absolute uproar over…wanting to defend myself. Come on, I’m 5-foot-zero, I’m 100 pounds. I’m in now 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. Just like I say in my ad, being a member of Congress is pretty basic. I don’t go to work in an armored vehicle. I don’t have personal police escorts. I am my own security here. And my most basic right is the right to defend myself.

The city’s police chief is already having a meltdown over this for some reason.

Police Chief Warns New Congresswoman About Carrying Gun in DC

D.C.’s police chief issued a stern warning for a new member of Congress who tweeted a video of herself purportedly carrying a Glock handgun on the streets of D.C. and on the U.S. Capitol campus.

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., posted the video explaining why she plans to carry her gun on the streets of D.C…

“That congresswoman, whoever it is, I guess it was from Colorado, will be subjected to the same penalties as anyone else that’s caught on the District of Columbia streets that’s carrying a firearm,” he said.
