ORLANDO, Florida — A firearm is the “great equalizer,” particularly for women, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who rose to fame after successfully getting a permit to carry concealed in Washington, DC, told Breitbart News. She blasted the radical left’s recent push for further gun restrictions, which includes the creation of a gun registry and psychological evaluations for gun owners.
“Banning guns is not the answer. H.R. 127 is not the answer,” she said of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) proposal, which calls for the creation of a registry for firearms and ammunition, as well as psychological evaluations for gun owners. “The process for obtaining the license to own a firearm includes a criminal background check, a psychological evaluation, and the passage of a training course,” as Breitbart News detailed: A second, completely separate license would be required to own an AR-15, AK-47, or other firearm designated as “military-style weapons” by the Democrats. HR. 127 would also require that gun license applicants pay $800 to the Attorney General to cover liability insurance for owning a firearm. In the event that an issued license is revoked, the license holder would be required by law to surrender all firearms and ammunition to the Attorney General. [full article]
