Friday: During an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity”, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), offered an argument in defense of the Second Amendment. She argued that it was an equalizer .”
According to the Colorado freshman Republican lawmaker gun rights were women’s rights.
“[The Second Amendment does not have anything to do with hunting, she stated. It doesn’t even have anything to do with any deer wearing Kevlar vests. This is actually a equalizer. Gun rights are the rights of women. To defend myself from a bigger aggressor, I will need an equalizer. This is why so many people have a gun. They have an option to protect themselves. We have the Second Amendment that protects us against a dictatorial government. This is very important for me as a mother of four sons. It is my duty to them and our family to be safe. This is .”
“I tell a fascinating story about why I became passionate about the Second Amendment in my book, “My American Life,” Boebert said. I saw politicians taking away our liberties rather than protecting our rights as they were oath-taking. Beto O’Rourke said he would come to take our guns, and I challenged him. Now I am taking on Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats and, unfortunately, the two Republicans in Congress to ensure that our second amendment rights are not lost.
