Lauren Bobert, a local businesswoman, confronted Beto O’Rourke about his gun confiscation plan during a town hall event Thursday in Aurora, Colorado, telling him “hell no” to his mandatory buyback program of AR-15s.
Her statements: “Gun-owning Americans who heard your speech and heard what you had to say, regarding ‘Hell yes,’ we’re going to take your AR-15s and AK-47s, well, I am here to say, hell no, you’re not.” she said.
“I was living in Aurora during Columbine, I had just recently moved when the Aurora shootings happened…all of those people were there defenseless, they had no way to defend themselves against a crazed shooter,” the woman continued. “So I want to know how you intend to legislate the hearts of men, and leave American citizens like myself, American mothers–I have 4 children, I am 5’0″, 100 pounds, cannot really defend myself with a fist.”
