Member Spotlight: Meet the Woman Who Took on Beto O’Rourke ~ VIDEO

Opinion

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- A Colorado woman challenged Beto O’Rourke’s gun confiscation plan at a town hall last week and the video went viral. Lauren Boebert’s interaction with the presidential candidate was viewed more than 5 million times on NRA social media and was shared 190,000 times. Boebert was even featured on national news. The NRA sat down with Boebert for a Q&A. Here’s what she had to say.

Q. Millions of Americans watched you take on Beto O’Rourke at his gun control rally in Colorado. How did that come about?

A. In Colorado, our Second Amendment rights have been hit hard in the last decade. Politicians have been shaving off pieces of our Second Amendment with knee jerk reactions any time they can find an excuse to restrict us. When I heard Beto was coming to my state to push for more gun control, I knew I had to speak up.

Q. Were you scared?

A. Not scared, but intimidated because I was surrounded by people who disagreed with me. There were a couple of hundred people who didn’t want me there. But I had to put those fears aside, because who am I to lose that opportunity to speak on behalf of millions of Americans everywhere?

Q. What advice do you have for others who want to speak out in support of the Second Amendment?

A. It starts at home, in your community, and with the people you have relationships with. We must educate those around us and teach them that a firearm is for self-defense and protection.

Q. How did you go from growing-up in a gun-free home to being a passionate gun rights advocate?

A. A man was beat to death in the alley behind our restaurant, and I wondered how I would defend my employees if something like that were to happen to one of them. I knew we could not be defenseless.

Q. Final thoughts on what it takes to be a Second Amendment activist?

A. We are the silent majority and because we are so silent, it seems like we are the minority. It's time that we rise up and speak up, we need to be heard. We’re not going to let Beto O’Rourke tell us how to defend ourselves. If politicians are so concerned with gun control, they need to start with the criminals. If they can make their gun control schemes work in Chicago, then maybe, we’ll listen. But we already know they’ve failed. Let Beto start his gun buy back scheme with criminals, then come talk to us.

Good for her for speaking up to him and those other people in the crowd that tried to silence her from speaking her mind. Other gun owners should make it a point to attend his town hall meetings and continually give him the same message.

Lauren, Thank you for your courage and truthfulness. You have given the rest of us a model. All it takes is one or two of us to go into the Marxist’s town hall meetings and to ask a question or two that will expose their lies. The MSM will jump on it and give us free publicity that we can’t get any other way. Simple questions based on data from places like the Crime Prevention Resource Center can basically say for example, that we want safety too, but citizen disarmament creates the opposite effect. I think being a woman actually… Read more »

Very good rebuttal to the Fredo. How long do you think it will take him to realize the public doesn’t hold him in as much esteem as he does himself. Polling at 1 % will get him second in line for dog catcher. It is a good thing he is rich because he is too stupid to live otherwise.

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have found another NRA spokes person, sign her up, and put her on the board. Her speech, makes me proud to be an American. We need to stand together, maybe we need a new organization, or radically gut the old one????

+1 on gutting the NRA. By not resigning, every single director is a tacit supporter of the criminals at the top. NRA gets not one more nickel from me, and whenever I get the chance I urge big donors (Midway, Brownells, etc.) to redirect their support to GOA and SAF.

I give big kudos to the young woman who walked into the lion’s den and gave those constitution hating people the truth, good on her, Now i have to wonder what beto’s fans are going to say when he comes after free speech and the 5th, 6th amendment, they all ready wanna sh-t on the 4th because they are cool with the RED FLAG NONSENSE. but until it affect them on a personal level they do not give a sh-t, and they are for it. I cant wait until they are denied the protection of the constitution they claim to… Read more »

Not just Chicago, the worst 50 city’s with the highest crime rates are controlled by Democrats and have the strictest gun controls,, The U.S Virgin Islands, its a stinkin Island for hell sakes, gun controls so strict that an antique must be certified inoperable, may be for show only, no gun shows, no gun shops, nowhere to by ammo, yet the last I seen, the population was roughly 110,000, there was 52 murders, 42 with firearms, criminals are roaming free and law abiding citizens are helpless..we warned, if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have them!..

As someone who has voted Dem his whole life I have to wonder, there seems to some truth in the fact that the majority of cities that have voted Dem into office in the last 50 to 60 years seem to be getting worse and yes the gun laws are the most restrictive but shooting are still rising. As a man who was raised in L.A. Calif. I have i seen the city’s deterioration first hand, which has made me pack up my wife and move to small town AZ, where one can exercise their second amendment rights and we… Read more »

In 2018, when he was trying to win the State of Texas, Beatoff O’Rourkee said, “If you Purchased that A R Fifteen, If You Own It, KEEP IT.” Beatoff O’Rourkee is a Typical Lying Politician. During the last Presidential Debate, HE SAID: “Hell YES, We’re Going To TAKE Your A R Fifteen and A K Forty seven.”

Glad to see and hear someone actually TELL THE TRUTH at a leftist/communist/socialist/demoncrapic rally. She said what we all say: No, you will not take our AR’s, our AK’s or anything else. I WILLNOT COMPLY. Just like the Spartans, just like at Masada, just like at Goliad, just like at the Alamo, just like at Perl Harbor, just like at 911 etc. We will NOT LAY DOWN OUR ARMS. WE WILL NOT SURRENDER. Should the commies force the issue, it is obvious they will try, it will be on and it will be on till ALL mankind here are free… Read more »

What kind of idiocy do we have in this country when we allow an individual with a criminal history to be a candidate for ANY governmental office? Is it no wonder that we have these CRIMINALS in our government who insist on infringing on our rights – the more restricted law-abiding citizens are, the easier it is for criminals to perpetrate their crimes!

Everyone who was at that rally and supports that POS beto, needs to be expatriated to another country, their citizenship revoked, and not allowed to ever return because they are anti-American, anti-Constitution, and anti-we the people!

Fredo, Bedo, Beta, whatever you call yourself, you have a better chance of getting pregnant than ever winning the Presidency. In fact you will be lucky if Texas ever lets you back in to the state. I guess you forgot about 1 million Democrats in Texas that own AR-15’s? Freaking moron…
