Last night Lauren Boebert tweeted a photo of her family in front of a Christmas tree, with all of her children holding AR-15s:
The Boeberts have your six, @RepThomasMassie!

The reference to Thomas Massie is because of a similar photo he posted of his family:
Merry Christmas! 🎄
ps. Santa, please bring ammo. 🎁 pic.twitter.com/NVawULhCNr

The photo Boebert tweeted last night caused a complete meltdown on the left with some suggesting child abuse or worse:
Tell me again where Christ said “use the commemoration of my birth to flex violent weapons for personal political gain”?
lol @ all the years Republicans spent on cultural hysteria of society “erasing Christmas and it’s meaning” when they’re doing that fine all on their own https://t.co/TOKE1SmY4C

The right-wing in this country is a horror show. This is obvious child endangerement. No other country would tolerate this kind of insanity. Conservatives raise their children in a culture of violence and bloodlust. Then we wonder why there is non-stop massacres in our schools. https://t.co/QV2Tg2j0j1

This is a tragedy waiting to happen, and we should all be concerned for the Boebert kids. There is a history of domestic violence in their home, and the Congresswoman has bragged that her guns are unsecured.
This photo is exactly why we must keep fighting for stronger gun laws. https://t.co/Evf8suIcK0

Gun safety = Gun Responsibility. @laurenboebert, the monster who murdered my daughter and 16 others was inspired by photos like this. Because of your incompetence as a parent, as a responsible gun owner and as an American I definitely see a future school shooter in this photo. https://t.co/AfMB2ZnK8I

This is a sickness. Any semblance of American decency is being ground into hamburger by people like Boebert. Do not lose your ability to be appalled. And do not underestimate the power of such poison. https://t.co/4TCizO9haE

So this is how yet another GOP politician wants to celebrate the birth of Jesus?

There’s so many more like this – the left loves to hate on Boebert. I would call your attention to one thing though. Look at the great trigger discipline her children have!
