Colorado Republican becomes second member of GOP to post holiday image that includes multiple firearms

コロラド 共和党 代表 ローレン・ボーベルト tweeted a クリスマス photo posing with her children holding guns.

Ms Boebert is the second member of the 共和党 to release a Christmas family photo that includes multiple firearms.

“The Boeberts have your six, @RepThomasMassie! (No spare ammo for you, でも),” Ms Boebert ツイート 火曜日の夜.

ケンタッキー Republican Representative Thomas Massie garnered attention after he posted an image of his family holding rifles on Saturday with the message: "メリークリスマス! ps. サンタ, 弾薬を持ってきてください。」

The photos were shared just days after the shooting at オックスフォード High School in ミシガン, which left four people dead and seven wounded. A 15-year-old suspect has been charged as an adult with terrorism and murder, among other crimes. His parents have been charged with involuntary manslaughter. 彼らは皆無罪を主張しました.

Mr Massie recently compared vaccine requirements to the Holocaust and he pushed back on reviewing the use of bump stocks following the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, 残った 58 デッド, an event that even prompted the NRA to support administrative bump stock regulations.

“If we know anything at all about America’s gun fetish, it’s that the children are either props or targets,” Brett Pransky, 前者 民主主義 candidate for the オハイオ statehouse ツイート about Ms Boebert’s Christmas photo.

“Back in my Republican days, I used to talk some about the ‘war on Christmas,’ but this isn’t what I meant,” former イリノイ Representative Joe Walsh 書きました.

フレッド・ガッテンバーグ, whose daughter Jaime was killed in the 2018 パークランド school shooting in フロリダ, ツイート: “The irresponsible gun-owning parent @laurenboebert is likely raising a future school shooter or domestic terrorist. She may think her photo is a funny reply to Massie, it is not. While she was taking the time to post, a REAL HERO was buried because of gun violence yesterday.”

Ms Boebert has recently also found herself involved in a separate scandal after she repeatedly aimed racist and anti-muslim comments at ミネソタ Democratic Representative イルハン・オマル.

マサチューセッツ Democratic Representative アヤンナ・プレスリー has introduced a resolution signed by other progressives that would remove Ms Boebert from the committees she’s serving on in the .

But Democratic leaders are hesitant to go after Republican members every time they do something they consider outrageous, and both legislators and staff members in the chamber have expressed concerns in private about punishing Ms Boebert since she didn’t make violent threats against Ms Omar, CNNが報告した.

It was violent rhetoric that prompted Democrats to strip committee assignments from Republicans マージョリーテイラーグリーンジョージア そして ポール・ゴサールアリゾナ.

Ms Omar has called Ms Boebert’s words “hateful and dangerous”, saying that “normalising this bigotry not only endangers my life but the lives of all Muslims”.

“Anti-Muslim bigotry has no place in Congress,” Ms Omar said after Ms Boebert implied that Ms Omar had been mistaken for a terrorist on キャピトルヒル.

独立者 has reached out to the office of Ms Boebert for comment.
