A woman spoke up to defend her Second Amendment rights in response to Beto O'Rourke's gun confiscation calls

A woman confronted 2020 Democrat Beto O'Rourke on Thursday over his calls to confiscate guns from American citizens, telling the presidential candidate, "hell no, you're not!"

Standing up to passionately defend her Second Amendment rights, Lauren Boebert told Beto: "I am here to say: Hell, no, you’re not!"

Boebert was responding to O'Rourke's claims that he would confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens in the United States if elected president.

Beto first made the radical calls during last week's Democratic Debate when he controversially declared: "Hell yes, we're going to take away your AR-15."

The former Texas congressman upped the ante this week when he clarified on CNN that his proposed "mandatory buyback" plan is actually about confiscating guns from law-abiding Americans.

"I have four children, I am 5-foot-0, 100 pounds, I cannot really defend myself with a fist," Boebert told Beto before a crowd of his pro-gun control supporters at a Colorado town hall.

"I want to know how you're going to legislate [gun confiscation] because a criminal breaks the law, so all you're going to do is restrict law-abiding citizens, like myself."

Last week, Beto controversially declared: 'Hell yes, we're going to take away your AR-15!'

Beto was holding a town hall event in Aurora, where a shooter killed 12 people and wounded more than 50 at a movie theater in 2012.

The crowd that assembled was largely supportive of his vow to take guns from law-abiding Americans.

O'Rourke received a spirited round of applause at last week's presidential debate when he responded "hell, yes" to a question on whether he favors taking guns like the AR-15 away from law-abiding citizens.

Appearing on "Cuomo Prime Time," earlier this week, O'Rourke was asked point-blank if he was in favor of "gun confiscation."

"Yes," O'Rourke firmly responded, "when it comes to AR-15s and AK-47s, weapons designed for use on a military battlefield, the high-impact, high-velocity round that is fired from those weapons.

"When it comes to those weapons... the answer is yes."

According to the Denver Post, 32-year-old Boebert drove three hours from the town of Rifle to the event and is the owner of a restaurant where the staff carries firearms.

As she spoke, a handgun was holstered at her side.

Many in the crowd tried to shout over Boebert as she spoke, but O'Rourke intervened, calling on the audience to be "respectful" and let her speak.

"Self-defense is a right that we have that shall not be infringed in America," she said.

O'Rourke told the audience that he refuses to accept the number of shootings that take place in the United States

"This doesn’t happen in any other country.

"There are 329 million of us. There are 390 million guns.

"No other country has this kind of ratio. No other country allows its citizens to buy weapons that were designed for war. …

"The logic of your argument is, 'Why shouldn’t we allow you to have a bazooka or drive a tank down the street?'” he answered.

Lauren Boebert runs a restaurant called Shooters Grill where all staff openly carry guns

Boebert runs a restaurant called Shooters Grill where all waitresses, and many of the customers, pack heat.

"Guns are welcome on-premises," reads a sign on the front door of the burger joint in the aptly-named Colorado town of Rifle -- population, 9,500.

"Warning: This is not a gun-free zone," reads a sign in the wood-paneled restaurant.

"God Bless America," says another.

Shooters Grill owner Lauren Boebert opened the restaurant with her husband, Jason, in 2013.

Shortly after the opening, a man was beaten to death nearby and Boebert said she began questioning how to keep herself and her employees safe.

"What do I do to protect me and my people?" she said.

"I could call the police but would they even come out in time?"

Due to Colorado being an "open carry" state, allowing for certain firearms to be carried openly, she said she started strapping on a gun, a Taurus Judge revolver, the next day.

"It just felt right," she said. "The customers didn't bat an eye."

That eventually evolved into the "open carry" theme which characterizes the restaurant today.

"It wasn't supposed to be a gimmick," Boebert said.

"It was just about protecting you and us."
