Lauren Boebert Shoots Back At Critics Over Guns Displayed In Zoom Call

Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is fighting back against critics who insulted her for her Zoom conference background.

Boebert virtually appeared at a House Natural Resources Committee meeting on Thursday, with a display of guns on a bookshelf behind her in her home.  The gun haters thought she made them less safe by having weapons in her house on a video screen.  Democrats seriously need to start electing smarter people.

Business Insider reported that critics made fun of the freshman Congresswoman saying that her guns were in a condition of unsafe storage.  Boebert fought back saying, “These are ready for use.”

Boebert chided the House Natural Resources Committee rule prohibiting firearms in its hearing room, even when it’s from their own home in a virtual online meeting, saying, “This rule is absurd and discriminative.” She’s absolutely right.  She continued.  “This is a blatant violation of our constitutional rights.”

Trust me, nobody else in that meeting who complained gives a damn about Constitutional rights. They’re all a bunch of tyrants.

From the perspective of “up yours,” the freshman Congresswoman asked the committee to issue her a “personal security detail” if the committee was going to enforce the rule.

“I would like to request at this time personal security detail that the chairman pays for himself, for every time I’m stepping into the committee room,” she said. “If this is passed, the chairman is trying to take responsibility for my personal safety while stripping away my Second Amendment rights.”

Naturally, the House Natural Resources Committee upheld the ban and she got no security detail.

Business Insider pointed out that a 1967 regulation stipulates that members of Congress can keep guns in their offices and may transport them around the Capitol with the exception of the House and Senate floors.  Boebert, Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and others complained that the regulation is a restriction that infringes on the Second Amendment.

A Democratic spokesperson told Business Insider, “As far as we’re concerned, we’re not doing anything new here. We’re restating existing policy.”
Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA.) mocked Boebert on Thursday over her “gun fetish.”

So, restating an existing policy that has violated the Second Amendment for 54 years is fine?

“Here’s the reality, if someone wants to have a shrine to their gun fetish as a Zoom backdrop in their private life, they can do it. But this is our hearing room. And at some point, we will get past the COVID epidemic and we’ll all start showing up in person. And our safety and our ability to conduct business civilly without feeling threatened is a relevant consideration, unfortunately,” he said snarkily.

This nimrod is mistaking a member of Congress trying to make a point about Constitutional rights for a gun fetish.  Someone should send him a copy of the Second Amendment.  Representative Boebert has a Bill of Rights fetish that Huffman should try sometime.

Representative Jason Crow (D-CO), a veteran, took to social media to insult Boebert.

“Let’s call this what it is — a political stunt. I never stacked guns on a bookshelf when at war, let alone on a Zoom in my living room. Unless you’re on patrol in Afghanistan, this is the right way to store a gun.”

Apparently, this moron doesn’t know the difference between being at war and on a virtual Zoom meeting. The “political stunt” is to point out how Democrat tyrants are crushing our Constitutional rights.  Right now they are preparing legislation geared to end your gun rights.

Representative Katie Porter (D-CA) also took to social media and tweeted about the virtual background that hurts her feelings.

“I always thought my dirty dishes piled up and accumulating bacteria were the most dangerous thing in a Zoom background.”

How are her dirty dishes dangerous to others in a virtual Zoom meeting?   Are these clowns seriously trying to get people to believe they can be harmed by things through a monitor?  Who votes for morons like this?

After experiencing a large amount of criticism, Boebert shot back [pun intended] at a Twitter user who accused the Congresswoman for having “unsafe gun storage.”

“Who says this is storage? These are ready for use.”

But Democrats have no concern about Obama-Biden Admin’s gunrunning scheme Operation FAST and FURIOUS when ARMING ILLEGAL ALIENS and NARCO-TERRORISTS, obama placing our US Border Agents under his dangerous Rules of Engagement to only use BEANBAG AMMUNITION when approaching illegal border crossers who “might” be armed, when they were ARMING INVADERS. weapons from their gunrunning scheme are still showing up at Crimes scenes.

Attacking our fellow American for “believing” in her 2nd Amendment Rights – is HARRASSMENT to force her to SUBMIT to what others want her to do.

She has a Civil Right to not have her path obstructed – whether she is armed or not.

US Congresswoman Boebert was elected by her constituents who absolutely knew her stand on 2nd Amendment rights.

Common sense would indicate that if she was strong on 2nd Amendment Rights, Boebert would be strong on ALL Constitutional rights as a member of our US Congress.

Her constituents made a good choice when they voted for her.

US Congresswoman Boebert is a strong representative for all of us demanding our constitutional rights to be honored.

Democrats are disgusting sexual perverts that are afraid someone with a gun might stop them from having their way with children.

Katie Porter needs a new housekeeper if her dirty dishes are piling up in her kitchen sink, while Bieber needs no help at all. She is showing her constitutional rights to own and bare arms Porter is showing her stupidity by not knowing it’s okay to actually wash dishes.

katie porter must be the dumbest person alive! what a person has on their walls(?) at their home is their own damn business.

This is what we have let our country come to.
The virtue signaling idiots out there today, can’t use common sense and reality when it comes to issues like this.
This is her house. She doesn’t have porn or pictures of people being gutted. I bet she could have an abortion rights poster in the background and not a word would be said.
This is like the jackass teachers who scream bloody murder because a virtual student has a maga hat on, nurf toy gun or some other snowflake trigger.

Welcome to the society of wokeness.
Push back when and where you can…especially where your kids are concerned. If you don’t they will be brainwashed, right under your noses.

Who votes for morons like this you ask? The same morons that voted for Biden for president. Which is about half the country as told by the “election”.

Sound like the democrats don’t need any civil rights? The democrats do not speak for the rest of this country that do use all their Constitutional rights to include the Second Amendment. And our free exercise there of. These civil rights are not open to the will of feel good liberals and must be exercised. I guess the liberal democrats has never read the works of Thomas Jefferson in the Federalist Papers?

alan heath

the 2nd amendment has the upper hand,and on a better note why is it the democrats are all from california ,that is a complete moron state,they were never taught the 2nd amendment.

My thoughts…this administration (no capital letters) is destroying the very fiber of our country with eroding the rights of the citizens of this country without consultation with any of us. We cannot travel freely because of covid but thousands of immigrants are coming into our country bringing a lot of diseases with them to pass to the citizens of the USA. There is a large lack of common sense of behalf of this president, vice president, nancy pelosi, chuck schumer (who is the most petty, vindictive person in the world). How they were every elected just is beyond me. I still believe the election was fraud!

Tom

The left is simply against our US Constitution. Period. Boebert is making these clowns look like the imbeciles they are.

SECOND AMENDMENT ABUSE ALERT!

Not that the Second Amendment has been abused (it has invariably been abused, abuse was inherent in its creation), but that the Second Amendment IS the cause of such abuse.

No anti-gun bill (since the inception of the Second Amendment) would be possible if NOT for the Second Amendment – that is, had the 18th-century founding fathers not replaced the Bible’s much more potent non-optional biblical responsibilities for their impotent optional Enlightenment rights:

“Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword [or today’s equivalent] in their hand … this honor have all his saints. Praise ye Yah.” (Psalm 149:6-9)

“But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house [beginning with spiritual and physical protection], he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)

Which is more potent: 1) An optional right, or 2) A non-optional responsibility?

Which is more likely to be infringed, licensed, and ultimately abolished altogether?

Which did the pre-Second Amendment Americans look to for their authority to be bear arms?

For more, listen to “The Second Amendment: A Knife in a Gunfight,” delivered at the Springfield, Missouri Firearms and Freedom Symposium, at http colon //www dot bibleversusconstitution dot org/#FeaturedMessages

At this same location, you will also find a radio interview Larry Pratt (Executive Director of Gun Owners of America) conducted with me on this same subject. I think you’ll find Mr. Pratt’s remarks especially interesting.
