Rep. Lauren Boebert, Colorado Republican, posted to her Twitter account a three-minute video showing her concealing a handgun and walking around the District.
Watch yourself, warned Chief Robert Contee III on Monday when asked about the video at a press conference.
“What I will say to that is — there are no exceptions in the District of Columbia,” he said. “We plan to reach out to the congresswoman’s office to make sure that she is aware what the laws of the District of Columbia are, what the restrictions are.”
Chief Contee warned that “that congresswoman … will be subjected to the same penalties as anyone else that’s caught on a District of Columbia street carrying a firearm unlawfully.”
