The Colorado lawmaker suggested Porter do her dishes in her response.
“Nothing about my display was the storage of firearms, those were absolutely ready to use,” she said. “They were in my possession. And so, it’s kind of alarming that she has so many dishes in her sink collecting bacteria. Do your dishes, hon. I’m a mom of four and now a Congresswoman, and my sink is empty. And so maybe she needs some extra help there at home. But nevertheless, I get it. The Democrats are going to come after me. I’m a threat to them because I’m doing exactly what the people sent me to do.”
“It’s kind of funny that the Democrats think that I won’t have something to say about the Second Amendment rights,” Boebert added. “I own Shooters Grill. I’m the co-chair of the Second Amendment Caucus. And the House Committee on natural resources, they wanted to ban firearms, I was absolutely going to have a display of how foolish their rule was. They want virtual committees, and they want to ban firearms. It’s only going to be Republicans in person anyhow. I am completely allowed to conceal-carry my firearm in the Capitol Complex. And for them to come up with this rule was a discriminative attack on me.”
