Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) contends the Democrats’ anti-gun positions are anti-woman.
She sent out a tweet Wednesday, saying “the Left’s gun control agenda will affect America’s women more than anyone else.”
The Left’s gun control agenda will affect America’s women more than anyone else.
I’m a five foot tall, 100 pound woman. The only way I’m safe to walk around any dangerous liberal city is with an equalizer.
Gun control is anti-woman.

Boebert earned election to the House in 2020 running on a pro-Second Amendment platform.
On December 23, 2020, she told Breitbart News she planned to “carry a firearm each day” once sworn into office in D.C.
She had already completed the process for applying for a D.C. concealed carry permit when she spoke to Breitbart, and on February 4, 2021, she received the permit.
Boebert has a very small physical stature and weighs less than 100 pounds. She often alludes to her small size, like she did in her Wednesday tweet, noting, “I’m a five foot tall, 100 pound woman. The only way I’m safe to walk around any dangerous liberal city is with an equalizer.”
