Breaking the law

The news is out: [Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., received this weekend a custom-printed Glock 22 handgun with the congressional seal on the grip as an apparent gift from members of a group called “Boots on the Ground Bikers for Trump.” Boebert now says she does not currently have possession of the gun, perhaps because it’s a violation of House ethics rules for members to accept gifts worth more than $50. Furthermore, unauthorized use of the official seal of the U.S. Congress seal is a federal crime.
House ethics rules bar members and staff from accepting gifts valued at more than $50, and federal statutes make it a crime to use the congressional seal without authorization. Standard Glocks run between $500 and $600, and magazines can typically range from between $20 and $50.]

Criminals on both sides.
