Lauren and her husband opened Shooters Grill in Rifle in 2013, west of Glenwood Springs. Lauren says she got a concealed carry permit after a man was “beaten to death by another man’s hands … outside of [her] restaurant”, and began encouraging the restaurant’s servers to carry guns openly.
Boebert made national headlines when she confronted Beto O’Rourke in September 2019, a candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, at an Aurora town hall meeting over his proposal for a buy-back program and a ban on assault-style rifles like AR-15s.
Lauren supports eliminating the U.S. Department of Education. She has named eliminating critical race theory from schools as one of her top legislative priorities, even though it is not taught in schools. During a press conference, she asserted that it was a lie, that it was racist, and that it would lead to children hating each other.
Boebert is a strong advocate for gun rights. During her primary campaign, she voiced opposition to Colorado’s recently enacted red flag law. On 1st January, 2021, in a letter co-signed by more than 80 Republicans, Boebert asked Speaker Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to uphold the 1967 law exempting members of Congress from a Capitol Hill ban on firearms, which allowed them to keep arms in their offices.
Lauren pledged that she would not support any federal budget that resulted in additional debt and that she would support a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. She opposes any tax increases. While expressing support for more defense expenditure, Boebert was one of 75 House Republicans to vote against the National Defense Authorization Act of 2022, saying the bill had a “woke agenda”.
Boebert has supported the energy industry. During her campaign, she said she supported “all-of-the-above energy, but the markets decide … not the government.” She declared support for uranium extraction and the generation of nuclear power, touting it as the “cleanest form of energy”. In February 2021, Boebert proposed a bill to ban executive moratoriums on oil and gas leases and permits on some federal lands.
Lauren was one of 14 House Republicans, most of them members of the Freedom Caucus, to vote against a measure condemning the Myanmar coup d’état that passed overwhelmingly. She cited concern about a passage that urged social media platforms to prevent disinformation and violence, which she said was tantamount to making Big Tech the “arbiter of truth”.
Boebert was one of 49 House Republicans to vote to repeal the authorization of military force against Iraq. She also voted against the bipartisan ALLIES Act, which would increase by 8,000 the number of special immigrant visas for Afghan allies of the U.S. military during its invasion of Afghanistan while also reducing some application requirements that caused long application backlogs; the bill passed the House, 407–16.
