Lauren who was born on December 15, 1986, is an American businesswoman and politician who became famous as a gun-right activist in September 2019 when she got involved in gun-rights activism, by challenging Beto O’Rourke at an Aurora town hall meeting during his 2020 presidential campaign.
Ever since she has been known as one of the front-liners advocating for open possession of firearms in the United States.
According to wikipedia.org, On January 1, 2021, Lauren Boebert wrote to House Speake, Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader, Kelvin McCarthy, a letter signed by other Congress members, asking that the 1967 law that exempts members of Congress from a Capitol Hill ban on firearms be retained giving them the legal freedom continue to carry guns.
