GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert says ‘when 9/11 happened, we didn’t ban planes’ in defense of gun laws and says ‘we can’t legislate evil away’

  • ‘When 911 happened. We didn’t ban planes,’ she reasoned, ‘We secured the cockpit’

GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert pushed back on calls for gun control after the Uvalde shooting, reasoning that the nation should not ban guns because it did not ban planes after 9/11.

The Colorado Republican said the shooting demonstrated the need for armed teachers, no to ‘take guns away from law-abiding citizens.’ 

‘When 911 happened. We didn’t ban planes,’ she reasoned. ‘We secured the cockpit.’

The gunman who mowed down 19 kids and two teachers at an elementary school had legally purchased two AR-style rifles days before just after his 18th birthday. 

‘Once again, unfortunately, we’ve proven that gun free zones are deadly and we cannot legislate evil,’ she continued. 

‘I want teachers that can protect themselves and their students. And you know what, we can achieve this without trying to disarm law abiding citizens,’ Boebert said. ‘For me, this is my equalizer. I need a way to protect myself and my children. And my firearm is my equalizer, my tool to do that.’

The staunchly pro-gun congresswoman tore into Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for blocking a school safety bill backed by Republicans, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for picking a fight with her on Twitter. 

On Wednesday the New York Democrat clapped back on Twitter after she wrote a tweet arguing ‘You can’t legislate away evil.’

‘Why even be in Congress if you don’t believe in doing your job? Just quit and let someone who actually gives a damn do it instead of acting like a useless piece of furniture when babies are shot with AR15s that we let teen boys impulse buy before they can legally have a beer,’ Ocasio-Cortez wrote. 

Boebert then asked her to meet up and talk about it. 

‘Ms. Defund the Police, Gun Free Zones have proven to be deadly. Let me know when you’re ready to do your job and effectively protect our schools with armed security. Let’s meet and solve this.’

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., asked Thursday for the Luke and Alex School Safety Act to be passed by unanimous consent, a proposal which Schumer shot down. 

The bill, named after victims of the Parkland, Florida shooting, would require the Department of Homeland Security to establish a standard of best practices for preventing and quickly shutting down violent events.  

The so-called ‘Federal Clearinghouse on School Safety Best Practices’ is already available at SchoolSafety.gov, but the bill would codify it, and make sure the clearinghouse publishes materials for training both education workers and law enforcement on incident mitigation and response.

Schumer quashed the bill because he claimed it could lead to ‘more guns in schools.’ 

‘GOP Sen. Johnson just tried for a bill that could see more guns in schools—I blocked it. The truth: There were officers at the school in Texas. The shooter got past them. We need real solutions—We will vote on gun legislation starting with the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act,’ he tweeted.
