House members who carry guns for self-defense are referred to as the “enemy within” by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday.
Breitbart’s Joel Pollak reported Pelosi’s statement, wherein she was given a chance to put forward her stance on House Members who want to be armed for self-defense.
Co-chair of the House of Representative’s Second Amendment Caucus, Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has been outspoken about her commitment to carry a gun in D.C.
In a December 23, 2020, exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Boebert said, “I am my security.”
Roberts added, “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 Capitol riots on January 6, 2021, Breitbart News reported that Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), the other co-chair of the Second Amendment Caucus stated it was comforted 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 Capito,” Massie stated.
