Gun Carrying Mother of Four Tells Beto O’Rourke “I’m Here To Say Hell No, You’re Not!” About Confiscating Guns
A mother of four children stood in the crowd listening to presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke speak. The brave woman told 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.’” She continued, “Well, I am here to say, Hell no, you’re not!”
The woman went on to explain that she lived in Aurora during Colombine and pointed out that the victims were not able to defend themselves. “I want to know how you’re going to legislate that because a criminal by defense breaks the law so all you’re going to do is restrict law abiding citizens like myself.” She added, “We all know that you sir have a criminal history, and I understand that burglars do not like armed defense… yet, that’s a right we have that shall not be infringed in America.”
The woman was identified as Lauren Bobert. Bobert is the owner of Colorado restaurant Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado. All of the waitresses at Shooters Grill carry guns.
A reporter later asked O’Rourke about the emotions he’s stirred up over his buy back program.
