Media Mad Boebert Didn’t Trip Over Herself for Gun Control

Say what you want about Rep. Lauren Boebert, but she’s not exactly known for being meek and mild. The firebrand Colorado Republican is vehemently and outspokenly pro-gun.

Oh, give me a break. That pamphlet was always going to be trashed and everyone knows it. What they’re upset about is that Boebert didn’t play nice with them for the camera and made it very clear that she supports the Second Amendment.

If she were interested in playing with the optics, sure, she could have waited to get back to her office before throwing it away, but let’s be real here. Her constituents have elected her to Congress twice now. They know she’s vehemently pro-gun. It’s unlikely they’re going to give a damn.

Further, let’s not pretend this is just a pin in memory of a victim. That would be nice, but it’s not. This was expressly handed to Boebert with a comment about gun control, something she disagrees with.

Let me put it this way. Let’s say a pro-life group offered an abortion-supporting member of Congress a pin and asked for their help in restriction abortion, only to see that lawmaker toss the pin. What then? Would these same people get up in arms, even though the pro-life folks would tell you that they’re trying to save the lives of countless unborn children?
