Congresswoman Lauren Boebert reportedly went up against Capitol Hill police after refusing a bag check as she entered the Capitol building.

“RIGHT NOW-Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, who has bragged about her desire to carry a weapon on Capital Hill is currently in a standoff with Capitol Police at the newly installed Metal Detectors outside the chamber doors,” wrote CNN Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles on Twitter.

The newly elected Colorado Congresswoman had pledged to carry a Glock handgun during her term in Washington, DC, saying, “I will carry my firearm in DC and in Congress,” in a video posted to Twitter last Sunday.

In the wake of last week’s breach on the Capitol Building, metal detectors were installed outside of the House chambers, which everyone, including members, must walk through in order to get to the floor.

Capitol Police won’t let her in until Boebert shows them what is in her bag, she won’t and is now standing by the entrance of the chamber. She is respectful but defiant.

According to Nobels, Boebert was eventually let into the chamber, though “it was unclear from my vantage point if the Capitol Police searched her bag before she went in”.

In addition to the Boebert standoff, several House GOPers expressed their anger over the new metal detectors. https://t.co/mWTKkgomDJ
