( – On Monday, Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert introduced new legislation that would repeal all the gun control measures that have passed in the last year.

The Shall Not Be Infringed Act is going to be overturning all bipartisan gun laws, as well as those supported by President Joe Biden, including the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, and a couple of appropriations bills. If the Act passes through Congress, then enhanced background checks for those below the age of 21 would no longer be mandatory. All incentives for the introduction of red flag laws would also be stopped while the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is going to be losing its current budget increase of 14.1 percent.

In her statement, Boebert has argued that gun control cannot completely “eliminate evil” from society. She added that the data has shown that there is no connection between gun control measures and a decrease in gun violence.

She then proceeded to point out the case in Chicago and New York, adding that it was ironic that those who were supporters of the defund the police movement were the same people who were trying to leave the American people undefended.

The bill is sponsored by several House Republicans including Byron Donalds of Florida, Warren Davidson of Ohio, Eric Burlison of Missouri, as well as Andy Ogles and Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee.

In her statement, Boebert added that she was a big supporter of the Second Amendment and that she would continue to fight for “law-abiding Americans and the Constitution.”
