Lauren Opal Boebert (BOH-bərt; née Roberts; born December 19, 1986) is an American politician, businesswoman, and gun rights activist serving as the U.S. representative for Colorado's 3rd congressional district. From 2013 to 2022, she owned Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado, where staff members were encouraged to carry firearms openly. A member of the Republican Party, Boebert is known for her gun rights advocacy, in particular after a confrontation with Beto O'Rourke over policy on semi-automatic rifles. In 2020, Boebert unexpectedly defeated incumbent representative Scott Tipton in the primary election, after which she beat the Democratic nominee, former state representative Diane Mitsch Bush, in the general election. In Congress, Boebert has associated herself with the conservative Republican Study Committee, the right-wing Freedom Caucus, of which she became the communications chair in January 2022, and the pro-gun Second Amendment Caucus. She won reelection in 2022 by a very narrow margin of 546 votes against former Aspen City Council member Adam Frisch. Boebert is often described as a far-right ally of former President Donald Trump, although she rejects this label. She supports Trump's false claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him and voted to overturn its results during the Electoral College vote count. She is accused of supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory, and some academic and journalistic sources have investigated her ties to far-right extremism. She opposes transitioning to green energy, COVID-19 mask and vaccine mandates, abortion, sex education, sex-reassignment surgeries for minors, and non-heterosexual marriage.
