'The dumbest person in Congress': Lauren Boebert ridiculed for her school safety comments

As America debates gun safety following another mass shooting, GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado was ridiculed for her public policy solutions to the problem.

During an interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity, Boebert called former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) a "jerk" for confronting GOP Gov. Greg Abbott over Republicans' gun policies.

"When 9/11 happened, we didn't ban planes, we secured the cockpits," Boebert said.

Boebert, owner of "Shooters Grill" in Rifle, Colorado was quickly ridiculed for her policy perspective.

Mark Medici, the publisher of the   Express-News   in San Antonio, began his reaction with an "actually" and   noted , "the tragic events of 9/11 created an entire branch of government called homeland security and swiftly revolutionized air travel safety (TSA) in the United States in the course of 30-days that the rest of the world adopted."

"There are so many things wrong with this, but I'll key in on this: airport security has gotten so much tighter since 9/11. I can't even wear shoes going through security anymore. When a few planes killed a bunch of people we made air travel safer. Why can't we do that with guns?"   asked   CBS Sports NBA reporter Sam Quinn.

"I say this with all the disrespect,"   began   Atlantic contributing writer and podcast host Jemele Hill. Boebert "is the dumbest person in Congress. She makes [Margie Taylor Greene] and Tommy Tuberville look like Rhodes Scholars."

Sports reporter Fallon Marie Christopher replied to Hill.

"The sad part is, she really believes in the BS she’s saying. You can’t fix stupid," she   wrote .

"Dumbness is a feature, not a bug,"   argued   Golf Digest   writer Matthew Rudy.

Writer Tom Nichols, a colleague of Hill's at the Atlantic, disagreed with her declaration that Boebert is the dumbest member of Congress.

"The competition for the stupidest member of Congress is always tight, and [Boebert] has made a bold move here, but [Margie Taylor Greene] is still kookier," he   argued .

Justin Baragona, media reporter for The Daily Beast, marveled at the conversation Boerbert had inspired.

"She truly owned the libs this time," he   joked .

"...airport security has gotten so much tighter since 9/11..."

Is that these rocket surgeons' analogy? Condemning Boebert, (an airhead in her own right) because school security hasn't learned a thing? Akiller walked through a door and carried on for an hour.

The killer also missed the no gun zone sign. Or he didn't and knew that it was a soft target with minimal resistance.  That is the problem with criminals; they just can't seem to obey laws!

What is Democrats response? Ban all "assault weapons"; but do jack shit of nothing to improve school security. As if their fucking sign has stopped any of the past school shootings. Or will stop any future school shootings. Maybe they need to put up more damn signs.

Ban all "assault weapons"

But these mentally deficient fools can't define what an "assault weapon" is.  

"When 9/11 happened, we didn't ban planes, we secured the cockpits," Boebert said.

That is exactly what happened.  In addition, we tightened security at air ports.  And it worked.  Democrats want NONE OF THAT.  They want signs that don't do a goddamn thing and restrictions on the law abiding people.  And then they don't understand why that's not working.

I wouldn't say that about my last Allegiant flight a few weeks ago.

When the attendants opened the cockpit door to serve the pilots all they did was move the beverage cart in front of the aisle.  Anyone could have easily hopped over that cart.

The Gunman fired out side the school for 10 to 12 minutes before entering through an unlocked door.

and it’s “stupid” to think schools can’t be made more secure????

but sure, mock people for offering solutions while you essentially pray that some unspecified miracle legislation will somehow take 400 millions guns out of the hands of  bad people.

which is easier, securing schools or ensuring that 400 million guns don’t get in the wrong hands?

20 years from now will we still be demanding that schools become medieval fortresses as the only way to prevent massacres of children?  It is bizarre and offensive. 

Do you actually think that 8 and 9 year old kids should have to do "active shooter" drills indefinitely?

It makes the old Duck and Cover drills seem quaint by comparison.

A ridiculous allusion.    

We had an armed campus cop from Middle school on up in the late 60’s and 70’s.    It’s nothing new.     And hardened/locked entrances already exist at most schools.   Lock  doors, limit/control access during school hours.    No biggie.

Hardly a fortress but I guess that sounds good to the triggered.

What is bizarre and offensive is doing nothing to make schools in the slightest bit safer from outside threats. The Democrats No Gun Zone signs have done absolutely nothing to stop school shootings.

Do you actually think that 8 and 9 year old kids should have to do "active shooter" drills indefinitely?

Just 8 and 9 year olds John. What about kids younger and older? They practice tornado drills all the time; and very few ever need to use them. They can do the same with school shooter drills. 

Or just do nothing and bitch when the next school shooting happens.

My wife teaches in an elementary school in Fairfax County, VA.  The school doors are locked and there is an intercom and a bulletproof window used to interrogate a visitor for entry.

The county is considering the addition of security vestibules as a better means of preventing intruders from gaining access to schools.

I'm not going to comment on the intelligence of the particular Representative, I don't personally know her so any information I have on her is only what can be read online.  

But what she said is not all wrong.  After 9/11,  we hardened airplane cockpits to prevent unauthorized entry.  Also increased security measures at airports and expanded the security boundaries.

Why can't some of these measures be looked at to help harden schools and reduce the possibility of more school shootings?  Why did Schumer shelve a vote on the 'Luke and Alex School Safety Act' and instead announce he's pushing a vote on a gun ban?  Why is banning guns the first thing the Democrats go to

Political mileage and no real desire to look at any other solution other than guns.  Pretty myopic bunch.

Not nearly the dumbest.

I don't think you can talk about the dumbest people in congress without having AOC in the mix.
