MAGA representative Lauren Boebert believes that Americans own less than 50% of the world’s guns is a depressing statistic and “we need to increase the numbers.”
Boebert made the hilarious remark during a floor speech condemning a new mandate by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to require gun owners to register firearms with pistol braces (which, of course, has lefty pearls).
Boebert’s colleague, Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, introduced a bill that would repeal the ATF in response to the pistol braces ruling that made a number of gun owners felons overnight.
In his speech, the Colorado Republican echoed Dr. Derek Ellerman of The Political Insider who suggested ‘Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms’ should be the name of a convenience store.
“Alcohol, tobacco and firearms,” he said. “In western Colorado, we call it a fun weekend.”

Boebert then suggested that not enough Americans were taking advantage of their right to bear arms.
“The Second Amendment is absolute and it is here to stay. A recent report said that Americans own 46% of the world’s guns,” he said. “I think we need to raise our numbers, boys and girls.”

Boebert shot back in epic fashion, “Do your dishes, hon.”

Boebert hit out at 14 Republicans who voted with Democrats to advance a gun control bill in June, less than two hours after the text was circulated.
The bill, which improves background checks for anyone under 21, establishes a federal grant program to encourage states to enact unconstitutional ‘red flag’ laws, and increases funding for school safety and mental health care, is slated for Republican support later that month. Thanks bye
It was signed into law by President Biden.
“Our Second Amendment is under siege by the very people it’s supposed to protect us against,” Boebert said Tweeted.
