The Montrose Press reports:
What would have been U.S Rep. Lauren Boebert’s first stop in Montrose since being sworn in was canceled Saturday. Boebert, R-Colorado, had apparently been scheduled for an event here, word of which began circulating online Friday evening. But by Saturday, the event had been canceled and the host site, Circle 3 Cowboy Fellowship, reported receiving a phone threat before the cancellation.
Pastor Gary Lear told the Montrose Daily Press the church was notified of the cancellation Saturday morning. Saturday morning, before the cancellation, Lear said the church received eight to 10 threats related to the event, including one that came from a Denver area code phone number. Montrose County Sheriff Gene Lillard said that his agency had been asked to provide event security for the event.
On Twitter, Lauren Boebert mocked a gun violence survivor for not being “tough” when confronted by Rep Taylor Greene. But faced with backlash, Boebert just cancelled her own town hall. And we know it can’t be a security issue because she says anyone who’s armed is safe. 🤷♀️ #coleg pic.twitter.com/cXtB0TR8e5

David, please. We all saw how tough you were when questioned face to face.

ma’am, have you agreed to turn over your electronic communication with insurgents on the day of the insurrection to the ethics committee and federal law enforcement?

He, as a child, survived a violent, armed, murderous attack.
You, as an adult, incited one. https://t.co/lxQICSwKOS

Tough word from Boebert to a high school graduate and Harvard student from someone who got their GED at 33.

Nobody shot up your high school and you still couldn’t graduate.
