NRA Member Lauren Boebert’s interaction with the presidential candidate was viewed more than 5 million times on NRA social media and was shared 190,000 times. Boebert was even featured on national news. The NRA sat down with Boebert for a Q&A. Here’s what she had to say.

Q. Millions of Americans watched you take on Beto O’Rourke at his gun control rally in Colorado. How did that come about?

A. In Colorado, our Second Amendment rights have been hit hard in the last decade. Politicians have been shaving off pieces of our Second Amendment with knee jerk reactions any time they can find an excuse to restrict us. When I heard Beto was coming to my state to push for more gun control, I knew I had to speak up.

Q. Were you scared?

A. Not scared, but intimidated because I was surrounded by people who disagreed with me. There were a couple of hundred people who didn’t want me there. But I had to put those fears aside, because who am I to lose that opportunity to speak on behalf of millions of Americans everywhere?

Q. What advice do you have for others who want to speak out in support of the Second Amendment?

A. It starts at home, in your community, and with the people you have relationships with. We must educate those around us and teach them that a firearm is for self-defense and protection.

Q. How did you go from growing-up in a gun-free home to being a passionate gun rights advocate?

A. A man was beat to death in the alley behind our restaurant, and I wondered how I would defend my employees if something like that were to happen to one of them. I knew we could not be defenseless.

Q. Final thoughts on what it takes to be a Second Amendment activist?

A. We are the silent majority and because we are so silent, it seems like we are the minority. It’s time that we rise up and speak up, we need to be heard. We’re not going to let Beto O’Rourke tell us how to defend ourselves. If politicians are so concerned with gun control, they need to start with the criminals. If they can make their gun control schemes work in Chicago, then maybe, we’ll listen. But we already know they’ve failed. Let Beto start his gun buy back scheme with criminals, then come talk to us.

  1. PLEASE! It is not a “Second Amendment Right”. It is a “Second Amendment PROTECTED Right”.

    The U.S. Constitution/Bill of Rights does not convey/grant any of our Rights. Both documents PROTECT our Rights.

    I have written extensively to NRA, GOA, TSRA, LSGR, etc. about this. It is not a minor detail, but all are too busy scaring people in efforts to acquire donations.

    1. I agree and I think this is the area where Scalia got it wrong in his decision of rights are not absolute. The right of self defense and defense against tyranny is absolute. Its not something the government “allows” but something we are born with and the COTUS just puts it in writing. I find it odd how the court defends a non “right” that isn’t enumerated in the COTUS abortion and then limits an actual right 2A that is specifically written to be unlimited.

    2. How, exactly, are the organizations you mentioned ‘scaring people’? Pointing out facts is not ‘scaring people’.

      1. Try reading and comprehending the first two paragraphs and understand that what I have been writing to them about is to get anti-gunners to understand the following: Take away the 2nd Amendment and it does not take away the Right since it never conveyed/granted such Right.

        The Right exists as a Natural Right at birth.

        I am sick and tired of all the organizations – to which I have been a long-time Life Member, plus others – breathlessly warning about “losing your 2nd Amendment Right”.

        The Right cannot be taken except by He who gave the Natural Rights.

  2. I’m always glad to see one of the ladies stand up and be counted, because I think more people listen. Proud to say I was one of those who helped spread the word when her story first hit the net. The anti-gun types have no idea just how many people there are out here that are just like her. The pollsters don’t ask people like me, or her, only other liberal antigun types, so they think the majority are in favor of this garbage. Not even close. Most of the pro gun types I know won’t even talk to pollsters, so the poll people have no idea how many of us there are. They’ll find out real quick when push comes to shove.

  3. She exposed that counterfeit Beto for what the liar that he is!! Another Demo candidate what a pretty good criminal record!!

  4. Lauren, Of course you are a hero and darling to all the rest of us, who believe as you do. I would be proud to shake you hand and sided you at that rally. Francis O’Rourke and Company, need to go crawl back under their rock. Thank you very much!
