Pistol Packin’ Mama
Lauren Boebert is locked and loaded and headed to Congress to protect our 2nd Amendment rights. The Colorado Congresswoman-elect joins 16 other freshman Republican women who helped trim Speaker Pelosi’s large majority in the House.
Boebert, the pistol packin’ mama of four sons and owner of the iconic Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., pulled a shocker on Nov. 3 when she toppled five-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. And just like their boss, the waitresses at Shooters all pack firearms. “An armed society is a polite society,” Boebert says.
She first caught the nation’s attention when she reacted to then-Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s anti-gun rant at one of the Democrat Party debates. Confronting O’Rourke at a campaign rally in Aurora, Colo., she said, “I was one of the gun-owning Americans who heard your speech–‘hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s’–and I’m here to say hell no, you’re not.” In this feature from Roll Call, Boebert also touts Western Colorado’s oil and gas production, featuring the Jordan Cove Pipeline approved by President Trump.ARVE Error: need id and provider
