(CNN)Members of Congress are still reeling after the traumatic insurrection of the Capitol last week, and many lawmakers are starting to speak out about the vulnerable position the violent breach put them in, as well as concerns they have about their security going forward.

"It is clear metal detectors would not have deterred the violent acts we saw; this political stunt does nothing to improve the safety of Members in the Capitol complex" Boebert said in a statement to CNN after the altercation.

Democratic Rep. André Carson of Indiana also shared how law enforcement failed him because he had to learn through press reports of court proceedings that he was the target of a man accused of bringing bombs and an arsenal to the Capitol last week.

Democratic Rep. Mikie Sherrell said on Facebook Live on Tuesday that she believes members of Congress led rioters around the Capitol the day before the violent attack.

Democratic Rep. Brad Schneider of Illinois, who was among the members to test positive for Covid after taking shelter as rioters took over the Capitol on Wednesday, told CNN he is extremely frustrated by the lack of information coming from Capitol Police as to what went wrong and what changes will be made as a result of the insurrection.
