GOP House Members ‘Furious’ Over Now Having to Pass Through Metal Detectors Before Entering Chamber

Several House Republicans are reportedly “furious” that they now have to pass through metal detectors before entering the lower chamber. The extra security measure was added in response to last week’s deadly attack on the Capitol building by a pro-Trump mob.

NBC News correspondent Leigh Ann Caldwell tweeted Tuesday afternoon, “I never thought I’d see this. Metal detectors have been set up for members before they enter the House floor. A clear indication that Democratic leadership does not trust some right-wing House members.” . . .

The first Republican to resist was freshman Rep. Lauren Boebert (Colo.), who earlier this month made headlines about bringing her own firearm into work. . .

MSNBC reported that “Republican Reps. [Louie] Gohmert, [Steve] Stivers, [Van] Taylor, Boebert, [Debbie] Lesko, and [Larry] Bucshon were among those seen not complying with police at added security checkpoints in the U.S. Capitol.”
