“SpeakerPelosi referred to certain members of Congress as the ‘enemy within,’” tweeted Breitbart’s Joel Pollak. “When asked what she meant she said there are members who want to carry guns (like @RepBoebert who carries legally). So if you exercise your 2nd Amendment rights after a deadly riot, you are an ‘enemy.’”
Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert is the co-chair of the House of Representative’s Second Amendment Caucus. In a December interview with Breitbart News, Boebert said, “I am my security. Washington, DC, like most Democrat-run cities, has a violent crime problem, so I certainly need a way to protect myself and I will be carrying each and every day.”
Following the January 6, 2021, Capitol protest, Rep. Thomas Massie, the other co-chair of the Second Amendment Caucus, said it was comforting to be armed when the rioters struck. “The next member who argues Congressmen shouldn’t be allowed to carry firearms at work needs to be laughed out of the Capitol,” Massie said.
