Lauren Boebert, owner of Shooters Grill, blasted Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to his face on Thursday over his extreme plan to confiscate semi-automatic firearms, telling him: “Hell no, you’re not!”
“Gun-owning Americans who heard your speech and heard what you had to say regarding ‘Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s and AK-47s’ — Well, I am here to say, ‘Hell no, you’re not,'” Boebert, who has several children, told O’Rourke.
Many of O’Rourke’s supporters were so rude to Boebert that O’Rourke had to step in and tell them to knock it off and to let her speak. . .

“We all have these stories. We all have these experiences. I was living in Aurora during Columbine. I had just recently moved when the Aurora shootings happened. Yet I have very close ties here. Yet all of those people were there defenseless,” Boebert continued. “They had no way to defend themselves against a crazed shooter, so I want to know how you intend to legislate the hearts of men and leave American citizens like myself, American mothers. I have four children. I’m 5 foot zero, one hundred pounds, cannot really defend myself with a fist.” . . .
At the event, O’Rourke signaled that he was open to becoming even more extreme on his gun confiscation program as he was open to the idea of banning and confiscating all semi-automatic firearms, which comprise the overwhelming majority of the estimated 393 million firearms owned by Americans[.] (Read more from “Mom Rips Beto to His Face Over Gun Confiscation Plan” HERE)
