They have the authority to imprison anyone they find to be disrespectful, contemptuous, or disruptive. They get to decide what’s disrespectful, contemptuous, or disruptive.
See where this is going?
If they come out and say “no denim allowed”, and you wear your blue jeans anyway....guess what? You’ve just been disrespectful. And/or contemptuous. And now they have the lawful authority to imprison you.
Now substitute “firearms” for denim.
They might not have the lawful authority to directly ban firearms, or denim, but they sure as shit have a way to make it happen.
If it isn’t vague, then show me where it limits, or defines, what constitutes disrespect to the House.
As the clerk was looking for the next court date, Borowski had the deputy return Wilborn to his seat, then told Tsai to sit down. "Is there something you want to say, or do you want to go into custody?"
That's when Tsai said he wanted to highlight that Wilborn is innocent at this stage.
"No kidding. I get that. Sit down," Borowski said, then, "Counsel, if you don't knock —" then ordered him taken into custody before finishing his sentence.
"Rolling your eyes, throwing your hands in the air, acting like I'm some kind of idiot gets you locked up for contempt," Borowski told Tsai.
I know Michael Yakubovich. He grew up under the Soviet Russian thumb. The prog/libs should not underestimate him. He knows what it's like to live in a communist society. We need a lot more of people like him in the house.
yakubovich is a badass
I have concerns when any self proclaimed Democrats are present. For that matter some repugs too.
