Must Read


Topline

Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) campaign sent out a fundraising email to her supporters encouraging them to say “Hell No” to any gun control measures in Washington on Monday night just hours after a mass shooting in her state left ten people including a police officer dead.

Key Facts

The email, with a subject line: “I told Beto ‘HELL NO’ to taking our guns. Now we need to tell Joe Biden,” was sent out by Boebert’s campaign just two hours after the shooting journalist David Gura first reported on Twitter.

The email name drops President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and claims they are trying to “criminalize the private transfer of firearms.”

After the shooting Boebert issued a statement on Twitter stating that her prayers were with the shoppers, employees, first responders and others affected by the shooting and added “ random public shootings & senseless acts of violence are never ok.”

Key Background

Earlier on Monday, ten people were killed after a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. The police were eventually able to take a suspect into custody who is being treated for serious injuries. Just before 3 p.m. local time, police responded to calls about a shooter at King Soopers grocery store, Boulder police chief Maris Herold said on Monday night without providing additional details. Eric Talley, 51, the first police officer to respond to the scene was one of the ten people killed in the tragedy. The shooting in Boulder comes less than one week after 21-year-old Robert Aaron Long admitted responsibility for killing eight people, including six Asian women, in a shooting spree in Atlanta.
