If Dems just open carried guns into the capital the Republicans would throw a hissy fit and demand it not be allowed.....then the problem would be solved 🤷🏻‍♀️. AOC with a pistol on her hip would cause such of a shit storm on their end 😉 Testing security? Or just a dick that got caught, both! If true, boot his ass out.

Expel anyone who does so! You failed for some reason to mention that Rep. Andy Harris is a REPUBLICAN from Maryland. Representative (R-MD 1st District) since 2011. It is important to understand that it was REPUBLICANS who sought to overturn a free and fair election by trick or force. Americans and their bloody guns.

Expel, charge, jail. ExpelTheSeditionists Attempting to sneak a gun into Congress should be disqualifying. This is what an obstinate toddler does. Told 'no', does it anyways because of an underdeveloped brain . To protect himself from his own mob? An0nym0usLlama SenSchumer SpeakerPelosi This guy should be kicked out of office.😡😡😡😡😡😡

EXPEL HIM 🤦‍♀️no other Western democracy that I know of has these sort of issues.🤦‍♀️ The world is dangerous and deadly enough: with Democrats holding White House AND both Houses of Congress: NOW is the time to tackle the 2nd amendment (well, after Covid Vaccination Rollout +Relief Measures) you cannot take a gun into federal buildings, courthouses, the white house and airports so dont understand why they expect it to be okay to take them into the capitol.

Doesn’t look like this new administration is going to put up with the 💩 Boy, the “Law and Order” party doesn’t seem to want to follow the law 🤷🏽‍♂️ Than What Brandon_Hicks24 With the swift of a Headline the public should forget unanswered questions about who, what, when, where the Top Officials at USCP knew.

OpenMarketingTV When I first saw his picture my first thought was Gerry Adams the leader of Sinn Fein I just don't understand how these people can be our lawmakers when they flaunt rules or laws they don't like. Enforce the rules! Remove him and charge him!! Tom_Winter Quite a few have done this!! $5k fine.

Tom_Winter Boebert did too. They should have tazed his ass Just stunning that this is where we are 9 years after Sandy Hook. can this fact be proven through the images of the security cameras? if so, he should lose his mandate.
