Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert absolutely loves guns, even though she doesn’t know a damn thing about the Constitution and what it says about the issue of guns and laws regulating them.
Lauren thinks the Second Amendment is absolute and no laws whatsoever can be passed that regulate guns in any manner whatsoever, despite the fact that the amendment reads:
Well regulated. Clearly, regulations are allowed or the Founding Fathers would have left off that phrase and just said that the right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
And yet, as much as Lauren wants to hug her guns and possibly even make out with them (do you doubt she’d try?), she doesn’t know squat about gun safety, which should be required if you’re going to be operating a weapon that can kill people.
In the video below, which was posted on Twitter by Patriot Takes, you can see Boebert firing off a few rounds at a gun range, but she gets frustrated when her hair keeps flying wildly as she fires the rifle she’s shooting.
To rectify that situation, Boebert goes over and grabs a pair of safety goggles to put atop her otherwise empty head and hold her hair in place while she continues to shoot.
Just one problem: She doesn’t put the safety on the rifle before she puts the weapon down. A man standing next to her does so.
While she was at it, why didn’t Lauren just go ahead and wave the gun around in the direction of others? After all, she’s already proven that gun safety is a completely foreign concept to her, as Twitter users quickly reminded her.
Since Republicans won’t let us have any sensible gun control legislation, can we at least pass some laws that won’t allow showboating morons in Congress?
