Two days ago, an incredible video of a brave, young woman confronting Beto O’Rourke at one of his small rally’s in Aurora, CO went viral.
The woman in the video, who tells O’Rourke she’s a mother of four, can be heard telling O’Rourke, “Gun owning Americans heard your speech and heard what you had to say regarding “Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15’s away.”
The angry crowd of liberals started to shout her down, in an attempt to drown her voice.
O’Rourke asked the crowd to let her speak.
“Well, I am here to say, ‘Hell no, you’re not!” She continued, “So, I would like to know how you’re going to legislate evil?”
The “5’ 4″ 100 lb.” mother of four children continued, to explain that she was living in Aurora, CO during the Columbine massacre. She reminded him that all of the victims of the shooter were unable to defend themselves.
She asked Beto how he was going to legislate gun confiscation, saying, “A criminal by definition breaks the law, so all you’re going to do is restrict law-abiding citizens like myself.”
She really went for O’Rourke with her next statement. I understand that you have a criminal record and that burglars do not like armed defense, but that’s a right that we have here in America.”

Today, Lauren Boebert, the woman in the video appeared on Fox and Friends, where she expanded on her comments to Fox News host Griff Jenkins. that O’Rourke was wrong to try and use the memory of her state’s tragedies to benefit his campaign.
According to the Denver Post, Boebert, 32, drove three hours from the town of Rifle to Thursday’s event and is the owner of a restaurant where the staff carries firearms. As she spoke, a handgun was holstered at her side.
“Shame on him for coming to Colorado to expound upon our tragedies — those are our victims and he came here to paint a picture for his own campaign trail and really, shame on you, sir, for doing that,” she said.
Boebert also had a message for President Trump, “We support our president. I love my president and I implore him: Please protect our Second Amendment. We elected you to do just that,” she said.
