Army veteran reports on fight against Colorado Springs shooter

Lauren Boebert went on a rant of self-pity on Thursday after being criticized for her response to the massacre at the LGBT+ Club Q nightclub in Colorado Springs.

Republican MAGA appeared on the right-wing network OAN where she moaned that she was tired of being “blamed” by “the left” for the mass shootings.

“I’ve been accused of just about every mass shooting since the left learned my name,” she complained.

Ms Boebert came under fire this week when she called the mass shooting which left five dead ‘absolutely awful’ and said the victims were ‘in my prayers’.

Several lawyers, including AOCs, members of the LGBT+ community and social media users, were quick to point out that she fueled right-wing hatred against the LGBT+ community.

Suspected shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, opened fire just before midnight Saturday with an AR-15 type rifle and a handgun. Aldrich, who has not pleaded or spoken about the incident, wanted to be the “next mass killer” and go out “into a fire”, according to records of past arrests.

Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, criticized right-wing media for the continued demonization of LGBT+ people in right-wing media.

“Nobody is holding them accountable for all the misinformation they’re spreading, but then we have to prove that we’re not who they say they are,” she told NBC News.

Colorado Springs Councilman Suggests Mayoral Candidates Propose Assault Weapons Ban

Colorado Springs Councilman Bill Murray challenged two other councilors to discuss implementing a citywide ban on assault weapons in the wake of the mass shooting that killed five people and injured 18 others at an LGBT+ nightclub on Saturday night.

“It might be a good thing for the two mayoral candidates here to discuss the banning of assault weapons in the city,” said Mr Murray, pointing to Tom Strand and Wayne Williams – among the seven candidates at the town hall in the next race.

His remarks followed a city council hearing in which residents and community leaders “expressed their anger, frustration, gratitude and calls for action” following the attack, according to Colorado Public Radio.

The shooting raises questions about how the suspect obtained a gun

The shooting raised questions about how Anderson Lee Aldrich could have gained access to a gun.

Last year, the accused shooter was arrested on felony threatening charges and first-degree kidnapping, after their mother alleged they threatened her with pipe bombs and other weapons.

Nonetheless, the guns used in the shooting were purchased legally, even though Colorado has universal background checks that prohibit those convicted of felony or domestic violence from purchasing firearms.

The state also has a “Red Flag” law, which allows citizens and police to apply to a judge for an “Extreme Risk Protection Order” (ERPO) against any gun owner they believe they present an imminent danger to themselves or to others.

Boebert launches self-prickling rant after being slammed for responding to shooting

US Representative Lauren Boebert said it was “disgusting” to blame her for what happened in Colorado Springs, as she launched into a rant of self-pity after being called out for ” hypocrisy” because of his response to the shooting.

In an interview with KAO, the Republican congresswoman said, “That’s completely untrue. I’ve never had bad rhetoric about anyone and their personal preferences as an adult.

She defended her past rhetoric, saying what she “criticized was the sexualization of our children. And I criticized men who dress up as caricatures of women.”

The far-right congresswoman faced backlash following her statement of concern in response to the shooting at a gay nightclub in the state when Twitter users accused her of trafficking the same hatred that was blamed for the attack.

But many called her after noticing Ms Boebert was deeply entrenched in the resurgence of right-wing hatred against the LGBT community.

“That’s why we’re calling on the DOJ to immediately step up its efforts to help keep health care providers, patients, and community members safe,” she added.
