The Colorado mother who challenged Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke on his call to confiscate millions of guns said the crowd tried to intimidate her, but she was determined to speak her mind. Lauren Boebert, a mother of four and owner of Shooters Grill, said she was alarmed by O’Rourke’s declaration at this month’s primary debate that “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” “I said ‘hell no, he’s not,'” Boebert told the Washington Free Beacon. “I will make that drive to let him know that we don’t need him coming to our state and pandering for our votes by talking up our tragedies and standing on the graves of our victims just to gain him more popularity in the polls.” Boebert drove to Aurora to confront O’Rourke at a town hall last Thursday. She said the crowd of O’Rourke’s supporters tried to pressure her into not speaking. “There was a little bit of intimidation, but who am I to let that keep me quiet on behalf of millions of Americans?” Boebert said. “So, I really had to suppress that and stand up for them and be a voice. I was speaking on behalf of those who weren’t there, couldn’t be there.” [full article]
