MAGA Representative Lauren Boebert believes Americans owning less than 50% of the world’s guns is a disappointing statistic and “we need to get our numbers up.”
Boebert made the hilarious comments (which of course have the left clutching pearls) during a floor speech condemning a new mandate by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) requiring gun owners to register firearms with pistol braces.
Boebert’s colleague, Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, introduced a bill that would abolish the ATF in response to the ruling on pistol braces that make a number of gun owners criminals overnight.
In her speech, the Colorado Republican echoed The Political Insider’s Dr. Derek Ellerman who suggested ‘Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms’ should be the name of a convenience store.
“Alcohol, tobacco, and firearms,” she said. “In western Colorado, we call that a fun weekend.”

Boebert slammed “D.C. bureaucrats” who she accuses of having used the ATF “to infringe on the rights of the American people.”
She noted the bureau’s involvement in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal under Barack Obama – a government gun-running operation to Mexican drug cartels that resulted in the deaths of dozens of people, including border agent Brian Terry.
The congresswoman also noted that “gun-free zones are the most dangerous places in our country.”
Patrick Neville, a survivor of the Columbine shooting in 1999, has said: “Time and time again we point to the one common theme with mass shootings, they occur in gun-free zones.”
Boebert then suggested not enough Americans are taking advantage of their right to bear arms.
“The Second Amendment is absolute and it’s here to stay. A recent report states that Americans own 46% of the world’s guns,” she said. “I think we need to get our numbers up, boys and girls.”

Lauren Boebert’s unbridled exuberance in defending gun ownership in America has sometimes raised the ire of the left to hilarious effect.
She drew a little heat from anti-gun Democrats after a Zoom call with other lawmakers in 2021 in which guns were sitting on a shelf behind her.
“I always thought my dirty dishes piled up and accumulating bacteria were the most dangerous thing in a Zoom background,” scoffed Rep. Katie Porter at the time.
Boebert fired back in epic fashion, “Do your dishes, Hon.”
Later that year, she posted a photo that included her four kids posing with guns in front of a Christmas tree, leading Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) to suggest she was trying to erase the meaning of Christmas.
Boebert hammered 14 Republicans who voted with Democrats to advance a gun control bill in June, less than two hours after the text had been circulated.
The bill, which enhanced background checks for anyone under 21, established a federal grant program to encourage states to create unconstitutional ‘red flag’ laws, and increased funding for school safety and mental healthcare, passed later that month thanks to Republican support.
It was signed into law by President Biden.
“Our Second Amendment is under siege by the very people it is supposed to protect us against,” Boebert tweeted.

A well armed citizenry is the most effective defense against governmental tyranny and the tyrants know it!
I wanna see her topless
She is absolutely correct! For ten years the ATF allowed pistol braces (which wasn't under their purview anyway). By doing so, the ATF basically admitted through their actions, that the NFA was irrelevant! The ATF IS NOT allowed to make laws or to interpret laws, but only enforce existing laws. They have ignored recent Supreme Court rulings and also continue to ignore the Constitution. They, with a swipe of a pen have made millions of Americans criminals when in actuality the ATF are the real CRIMINALS. They defy the Constitution; they defy Supreme Court rulings; they defy current gun laws; they make shit up as they go along in order to fit their agency agenda! They are another corrupt beaurcratic agency posing as Law Enforcement, persecuting law abiding citizens (just like the FBI and IRS)! They will be held accountable!
She is spot on. At this low percentage of Americans owning firearms we wouldn't have much of a chance to defend this country against a tyrannical government (which is close to happening) or our outside enemies. That's why the evil leftists keep creating mass shootings after mass shootings to create confusion among the people. Don't fall for it. They are trying hard to disarm America - believe it or not!
