Lauren Boebert owns Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, a restaurant where every waitress packs a gun, and a very pro-gun place Gunpowder Magazine was pleased to visit as part of our “Second Amendment Spotlight” series (see video at the end of this article).
Boebert isn’t about to let a liberal politician take her guns away, and she recently stood up to Beto O’Rourke at a townhall in Aurora, Colorado.
According to The Blaze,:
[The Denver Post] said Boebert, 32, took note of O’Rourke’s declaration — "Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47" — at last week’s Democratic primary debate.
So, with her Glock handgun holstered at her side, the Post noted, Boebert didn’t waste her chance on the mic to speak to O’Rourke: "I am here to say: Hell no, you’re not," she told him.
And quite a few folks in the crowd didn’t like it, as they jeered and hollered at Boebert.
To his credit, O’Rourke asked his fans to "be respectful" and let her finish.
She then asked the candidate how he intends "to legislate evil, because it is not the gun — it is the heart of the man."

Boebert’s brave activism has landed her in the headlines all across the nation, and she recently appeared on Fox & Friends:
