Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) warned Monday that Democrats are going to talk a lot about gun control this week but she would prefer to just rely on the Constitution.
Her warning came on the start of a week in which House Democrats are poised to take up Whip James Clyburn’s (D-SC) “Charleston Loophole” gun control as well as Rep. Mike Thompson’s (D-CA) universal background check gun control.
And it should be noted Clyburn signaled last week his gun control is just a “first step.”
Amid this Democrat gun control push, and Clyburn’s intimation more may be coming, Boebert tweeted:
You’re going to hear Democrats talk a lot about “common sense” gun control this week.
I think following the Constitution is pretty sensible myself.

Boebert was elected in November 2020 on a pro-Second Amendment platform. On December 23, 2020, she ruffled Democrats’ feathers by assuring Breitbart News she would carry a gun for self-defense “each day” while in D.C.
On February 19, 2021, she trolled Democrats with a Zoom video in which an AR-15 and other long guns were visible on the shelf behind her. The video was part of a virtual meeting for the House Natural Resources Committee.
Now, she is signaling more gun control is not needed; that the Constitution is enough.
