U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., has proven to be a real pistol when it comes to taking a stand against today’s radical Democrats, as seen Tuesday when the freshman lawmaker took to the House floor to deliver a blistering speech on the hypocrisy of the opposition party.
A hypocrisy that delivers a result Democrats may not be too pleased with — a stronger embrace of the right to bear arms.
Boebert took no mercy on 78-year-old President Joe Biden, and called attention to recent actions involving son Hunter Biden. But first, she thanked Democrats.
“Madame Speaker, I want to begin this evening by thanking my Democrat colleagues for their outstanding work in encouraging millions of Americans to celebrate their Second Amendment rights by purchasing their first, second or even 100th firearm,” Boebert said. “From the left’s riots in cities across America, to Biden’s threats to strip away our basic constitutional rights, Democrats are single-handedly responsible for the sale of tens of millions of firearms. Bravo. Well done.”
The Republican followed the remark with quick applause, adding that she heard that “interest has begun to peak when it comes to the sale of F-15’s.”
The left’s gun-grabbing rhetoric is encouraging millions of Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights by buying their first, second, or even 100th firearm.

This being a snarky reply to Biden misrepresenting the Second Amendment last week while unveiling his alleged plan to counter a surge in violent crime. The president said the Second Amendment “limited” the type of weapon you could own, adding, “If you wanted or if you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”
(There is no such limit in the U.S. Constitution.)
“Now, I have some questions for these freedom haters. When are you going to call on the chief executive, the basement dweller, to hold his own son accountable for his gun crimes?” Boebert said.
She proceeded to note that Hunter Biden lied on a federal firearms application, and pointed out that this is punishable by up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine.
“Of which, ten percent will not be going to the ‘big guy,'” Boebert quipped. “Rules for thee, but not for my crackhead, parmesan smoking, gun criminal son.”
The incident involving Hunter Biden’s handgun reportedly being tossed in a back alley trash dumpster was also raised.
“Why was the Secret Service involved in locating this firearm?” she inquired, before asking what would have happened had Donald Trump Jr. been involved in a similar incident.
“That’s just the start of the hypocrisy. Biden will call widely-purchased firearms ‘weapons of war,’ but then he’ll tell you that you need an F-15 or a nuke to keep the federal government in check,” Boebert said.
“He will target so-called ‘merchants of death,’ but celebrate the 600 abortion clinics across America,” she continued. “This regime will encourage riots, defund the police and try to take away Americans’ right to self-defense. Madame Speaker, the American people are not on board with the Biden regime’s hypocritical gun-grabbing. Instead, they are buying guns at a record rate.”
Boebert concluded by telling her Democratic colleagues that “they can keep running their mouths and we will keep adding to our arsenals.”
On that note, 4.7 million firearms were sold in March, the most in a month since the FBI started counting more than 20 years ago. Shelves in many gun shops are empty, and the price of ammunition is skyrocketing — if you can find any.
