Democrats Say Pro-Gun Congresswoman Has a ‘Fetish’ For Guns After She Displays Firearms in Zoom Call

A pro-gun congresswoman from Colorado is facing criticism from Democrats after she displayed several firearms in the background of an online video committee hearing.

“If somebody wants to have a shrine to their gun fetish as a Zoom backdrop in their private life they can do that,” U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman said during a meeting of the House Committee on Natural Resources.

“But this is our ‘hearing room,’ and at some point we will get past the COVID epidemic, and we’ll all start showing up in person, and our safety and our ability to conduct business civilly without feeling threatened is a relevant consideration, unfortunately,” she continued.

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert set up the display in response to a proposal that would prohibit committee members from carrying guns in the in-person hearing room. Even during her election campaign, Boebert has been outspoken about her desire to carry firearms at the Capitol.

Rep. Boebert called Rep. Huffman a “creep” in an interview with Fox News’ Mike Emanuel and claimed his “disdain for the Constitution was on full display.”

“Rather than having a productive debate about policy … Democrats were too busy mocking the Constitution and disrespecting the everyday Americans that I was elected to represent,” Boebert said.

“This was my first committee hearing and the chairman couldn’t stop attacking, degrading, and insulting committee members,” she continued. “I am busy fighting against the left’s real fetish for power and stripping Americans of their constitutional rights.”

Her spokesman told Fox News that the display in the background of her video call had been set up at her home in Rifle, Colorado.

Later that day on Twitter, Rep. Huffman doubled down on his comments, citing Boebert’s background as justification for prohibiting firearms in committee rooms.

Rep. Huffman has long advocated for tougher restrictions on the ability of congresspeople to carry firearms at the Capitol. Prior to the riots on January 6, the California representative called the Capitol “one of the most fortified and secure places on earth” and accused members like Rep. Boebert of being “paranoid” for wanting to carry firearms.

Huffman hasn’t responded to a GunsAmerica request to revise or clarify his comments, but he has moved forward with the “No Congressional Gun Loophole Act,” which would prohibit congresspeople from carrying firearms anywhere at the Capitol.

This isn’t the first time Rep. Boebert has stirred controversy over her pro-gun stance. She reportedly clashed with Capitol Police last month when she set off one of the metal detectors set up by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and refused to let officers look through her purse. She also gained attention after founding Shooter’s Grill, where the waitresses openly carried firearms.

    Anyone that criticizes this woman or anyone else for doing what she is doing is denying her of exercising her constitutional rights. I am doing it to you right now, how do you like it? I would welcome her to my home and my fight. I would not piss on you if you were on fire, unless I had just drank some turpentine.

    • Big Al 45 March 3, 2021, 4:11 pm

      Your logic is flawed, criticism of anyone’s speech is NOT denying them of that speech, in fact it too falls into ‘free speech’ boundary’s.
      “I cannot agree with what you say, but I would defend to the death your right to say it”.
      Criticism of another’s speech IS free speech.

  • Paul Mikulin March 1, 2021, 8:41 am

    Forgive me for writing the word fetish but this is something a non Christian liberal would think of. A true Christian would not even think of such a thing as this.

    • Dave March 1, 2021, 10:46 am

      I don’t think you would know a true Christian, U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert ,was not wrong, and it has nothing about being a Christain.

  • Troy February 28, 2021, 9:47 am

    She’s an uneducated nitwit. She does more to hurt gun rights with her stupid “in your face” style than you realize.
    Put your confidence in this idiot and watch what really happens as America recovers from 4 years of a reality tv clown at the helm of this country…

    • Ron March 1, 2021, 9:07 am

      So someone that supports the Constitution is an “uneducated nitwit” as you called her for displaying something protected by the Constitution in the 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment, etc.. Wow. I suppose she should have worn a star for being opposed the the the Left’s Socialism/Communism and attempts tp shred the Constitution. Are brown shirts in fashion now?

    • Cea March 1, 2021, 10:26 am

      My first thought was that her doing this might not have been a great idea. But then I thought about a friend of mine who is always saying that he is starting to feel shame for being a gun owner and even for being patriotic.
      That is really ridiculous. No way we should cave to the PC crowd and be fearful to display what we like. What if it were high school sports trophies? Fishing equipment? What else should we NOT show to others? If we keep going the way we are going, sports trophies may be next! Some sort of superiority complex…we are better than “someone”!
      Where does it end? There is no reason (other than security and/or plain not wanting anyone to know what you have…) not to be proud of what we have and/or are interested in?
      No more pictures of boats…offensive to those that cannot afford one! No pictures of children…offensive to those that cannot have them!
      Not me! I fly my flag and am a proud American, and gun owner.

    • Randy March 1, 2021, 10:26 am

      I heard the same type of ignorant comments from some
      British gun owners who thought the same thing. They thought being quiet and timid was the way to fight their socialist. Well you can see how well it worked out for them.

    • Dave March 1, 2021, 10:49 am

      Its seems you the uneducated nitwit and everything else you called her. People like you are the problem.

    • John Boutwell March 1, 2021, 1:22 pm

      You are kind of a knucklehead son!

    • BluNos March 3, 2021, 1:07 am

      Nancy Piglosi, is that you?

    • Big Al 45 March 3, 2021, 4:15 pm

      More flawed thinking, another one who believes we can get along with those who would take our gun rights by being ‘nice’ or by acting in a certain manner or way.
      Then you show your T.D.S. and believe we should take your opinion for consideration?
      Who’s acting the nitwit now?

  • Mark - Bristol, IN. February 26, 2021, 9:17 pm

    An old Eddie Money song comes to mind, “I Think I’m In Love”

  • Munnster February 26, 2021, 4:32 pm

    This is coming from the same group who has a fetish with little boys and girls. Hey Demoncrats, if you hate America so much, why don’t you just move out of the country to one like North Korea or China that more aligns with your beliefs.

  • dit February 26, 2021, 4:12 pm

    Jared Huffman is just upset because he could not have his NAMBLA display behind him in a zoom meeting. Get the pedophiles out of congress and back in jail where they belong.

  • JRB February 26, 2021, 1:10 pm

    Keep the faith Lauren. One suggestion: drop the name calling and ask the Marxocrats questions they cannot answer such as “why do you desire to disrespect the people of their God given Constitutional Rights under Natural Law? Or, “why are you devaluing peoples’ lives by not allowing them to protect themselves from an overreaching Federal government? “Why do you promote the same behavior of enslaving the population by disarming them like Marxists have throughout history.” Name calmly gets you nowhere. Asking questions such as these will reveal who owns the truth.

    • AFvet February 26, 2021, 8:03 pm

      You go girl. Keep up the pressure on those bastard. Eventually they will fall.

  • SD DENTON February 26, 2021, 12:22 pm

    I wish we had folks like her in congress here in the communist state of Virginia

    • Gomer March 1, 2021, 11:12 am

      My state senator is one of the stinking Republicans rolling over for the left on gun confiscation. She needs to be put out of business this year. Virginia is in a world of shit with these people.

  • SD February 26, 2021, 12:17 pm

    I just wish we had folks in congress here in the communist state of Virginia

  • Glennbo February 26, 2021, 12:15 pm

    Wish she would call debate with certain liberals to see if they really want to protect americans by asking the money spent to disarm legal gun owning Americans to use money to build prisons so the excuse of releasing prisoners because of over crowding. This is where the real danger is. We all know that if stiffer penalties that are set as law for gun crimes to be in forced. I just do not see how anyone can think that legal gun owners are the ones involved in mass shootings or would use guns illegally I know something needs to be done to stop crime. By punishment to the full extent of the law & not the way its being done now.

  • Joe Thomas February 26, 2021, 12:09 pm

    So, I also have a fetish for guns and am starting to have a fetish for Lauren Boebert. She is smart, tough, beautiful and has more guts than all the other members of congress.

  • Richard Lockwood February 26, 2021, 11:40 am

    Good for her she doesn’t need to take any shit from those hipocrits and lying demorats.

  • Terry J Reeder February 26, 2021, 11:29 am

    The thing that bothers me is how many of the so-called “Gun Culture” speak fearfully of the dreaded coming confiscation of our weapons. If you fear confiscation then apparently you are planning to be a sheep and run to the nearest dumpster with yours.

    If this is your thinking then just take them to the cop shop and hand them over.

    Our nation was founded by real men with guts, they were just everyday men, they weren’t steroid pumped up supermen. They were men who said “NO” and when no wasn’t enough they did as needed.

    Yawl can do what you want but I think we need to get it thru the pea brain Dimwads that we are saying NO, Hell no”

    I don’t think there are enough stupid LEO’s in the country who will try to enforce these laws they drool over.

    Americans are afraid to stand up for what’s right.

    Yawl do as you wish but I’m saying NO, Hell NO!

    I’m 78 and really don’t care much anymore. I feel for you youngsters who have families. You face a hard decision.

    But we stand together or we shall surely hang separately………I think it was old Ben who said that.

  • Blasted cap February 26, 2021, 11:23 am

    Better than touchy feely Joe’s fetish feeling up every woman that gets within striking distance.

  • Big Al February 26, 2021, 11:08 am

    At least she doesn’t masturbate during virtual meetings like dumbocrates.

  • Stephen February 26, 2021, 10:32 am

    This congresswoman is showing more stones than any man in congress! What’s the problem? Jealous boys?

  • Big Al 45 February 26, 2021, 9:55 am

    a “fetish”?!?
    So??????
    I see nothing wrong with that, I’m certain MANY other Representatives have FAR WORSE fetishes.
    After all, Weinstein didn’t get where he got having little ‘shooting’ get togethers with all those other men, the Pervs.
    IF they had, he wouldn’t be where he is now, would he????
    And a bunch of guys wouldn’t be sweating it out.

  • Randy February 26, 2021, 9:42 am

    Liberals depend on someone in big government to do their dirty work.

  • Laughinghawg February 26, 2021, 9:32 am

    Maybe Rep. Huffman should find a new work environment that has a safe space that he can feel a little more comfortable in. I hear that being a school teacher is a good profession. It is a gun free zone and has safe spaces roped off so he can say anything he wants. That’s her home, she can have anything she wants in it, zoom call or not.

  • Mr. FRITZ February 26, 2021, 9:31 am

    Wow? And yet their illegitimate fraudulent pretend prez slow joe doesn’t know if it’s his sister? or the other woman? he’s married too.

    OR!!,, that he has a fetish for fondling and sniff’in children, and let’s not forget that he likes the little children to rub the hair on his leg so it stands up!

    Apparently that’s normal in their reality of anything goes…..

    Yeaa, I’m just going to support Rep. Boebert, O’l slow pervee joe and heels up are just completely f–king psychotic and nauseating.

  • Ed February 26, 2021, 9:27 am

    Screw those dims.

  • Rusd February 26, 2021, 9:10 am

    What’s wrong with liking guns? They don’t hurt people, bad people do. I like the fact that she is pro gun and shows her own guns off. That’s her right. That ugly hag Pelosi collects containers of ice cream. Lohan Omar collects brothers and other strangers as husbands and much worse. I could go on and on.

  • Bill February 26, 2021, 8:32 am

    We need more good people in Congress like her. She could use more wisdom and less “ in your face “ so that she can influence others in Congress more!

  • Chopins11th February 26, 2021, 8:09 am

    Yes, insulting and scary books. Just a couple common sense rules and compromise can fox that though. No reason anyone has to have a hard cover. No one retains 3,4, 10 or more chapters. 2 chapters is a more manageable book. You WILL eat green eggs and ham Mr.Cat in the Hat.

    • wclardy February 26, 2021, 10:25 am

      “I will NOT read ‘Green Eggs and Ham’!
      I will not read it, Sam-I-Am!
      I will not read it in a house.
      I will not read it with a mouse.”

  • Chuck Matson February 26, 2021, 7:16 am

    Meanwhile…the leftists are being caught doing lewd acts on zoom…but thats allowable..right?

  • krinkov545 February 26, 2021, 7:15 am

  • BILL MARTIN February 26, 2021, 7:11 am

    THE ONLY THING I SEE WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE IT SHOWS A AR-15 AND ANOTHER LONG GUN, IT TELLS THE LEFT WING IDIOTS SHE HAS ( 2 ) GUNS IN HER POSSESSION FOR A EASY CONFICATION LATER, NEVER SHOW ANYONE YOUR WEAPONS COLLECTION, KEEP THEM GUESSING, SHE IS MY KIND OF CONGRESS WOMAN, JUST WISH WE HAD MORE MEMBERS TO STAND UP FOR OUR GREAT 2ND AMENDMENT

  • Rob February 26, 2021, 7:03 am

    Lefties have a fetish of being morons.

  • SeabeeAl February 22, 2021, 2:18 pm

    Classic playground move, when you can’t win the argument, attack your opponent personally and start the name calling.

  • Lewis Spyrou February 22, 2021, 10:51 am

    The liberals have a fetish about letting criminals out of jail, and illegals run free.

  • Ti February 20, 2021, 3:59 pm

    She lives in Rifle, Colorado. C’mon man….!

  • SuperG February 20, 2021, 9:50 am

    Aside from a poster in the background, saying she’s going to kill a specific person, I don’t see it as threatening. This is just more Democrat “Henny Penny” fear mongering because they see something they do not like. Are the books insulting and threatening to those who cannot read?

    • Chopins11th February 26, 2021, 8:22 am

      Yes, insulting and scary books. Just a couple common sense rules and compromise can fix that though.
      No reason anyone has to have a hard cover.
      No one retains 3,4, 10 or more chapters.
      2 chapters is a more manageable book.
