Boebert's Gun Carrying Lie
BoBo used a bogus story about a man being "beaten to death" outside her restaurant to advocate for gun rights, despite the local police department debunking her claims after an autopsy showed that the man had died from a drug overdose.
"There was an altercation outside my restaurant where a man was physically beat to death, there were no weapons involved, he was beat to death by another man's hands," she said, referring to a 2013 incident outside her Shooters Grill restaurant in Rifle, Colorado.
Boebert used the story to justify why she and the staff at her restaurant all carry guns at work.
"I have a lot of young girls who work in my restaurant and we needed an equalizer." However, it was reported by the Colorado Sun newspaper in September last year that the Rifle Police Department had no record of such a murder.
The police department told the newspaper that a man had indeed died down the street from the gun-themed Shooters Grill restaurant in August, but that an autopsy indicated that he had died after overdosing on drugs.
