Congresswoman Lauren Boebert was filmed wordlessly threw throwing away a pamphlet calling for gun reform and sharing the story of Maite Rodriguez, one of the 19 students fatally shot in the 2022 Uvalde school massacre.
Anti-gun violence activist Sarah Fishkind filmed the interaction in the Capitol on Tuesday.
“Lauren Boebert just threw away a pamphlet of a mother fighting to honor her child who was gunned down and murdered in her classroom,” he wrote on Twitter.
“On that fateful morning, my daughter walked out of our home, not knowing she would never return to her mother,” the pamphlet read.
Lives Robbed told The Independent in a statement, “The video of Rep. Boebert throwing out the pin of Maite’s Shoes is disgusting and beyond insulting.
Ms Boebert, who once ran a gun-themed restaurant in Colorado called Shooters Grill, is a staunch opponent of gun control laws.
She has previously mocked Mr Hogg online, telling him to “give it a rest” when he criticised her record on safety issues. »
