The Washington Post reports:
We’re often interested in the “origin stories” of politicians — regular lines that they use over and over to explain their political motivations. Boebert is a strong booster of gun rights.
She arrived in Congress this year after leveraging her fame as the owner of a restaurant, Shooters Grill of Rifle, Colo., where the wait staff often serve customers with open-carry firearms. A sign outside tells customers that guns are welcome.
Over and over, Boebert says she started allowing her staff to carry guns after a man was killed outside her restaurant. But we’ve obtained police and coroner reports that show her story is mainly fiction.
Read the full article. As you’ll see, the man wasn’t beaten to death, as Boebert claims, and the incident didn’t happen outside her restaurant.

Terrific @GlennKesslerWP takedown of the bogus story that @laurenboebert keeps telling about the fight outside her restaurant that led her to pack heat at work, with police and autopsy information:https://t.co/vei3jKB0JD

Let me tell you why I WILL carry my Glock to Congress.
Government does NOT get to tell me or my constituents how we are allowed to keep our families safe.
