“Gun-loving Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) sparked more outrage with a bewildering tweet about firearms and voting.
“Liberals keep saying it’s easier to buy a gun than it is to vote, but I don’t seem to remember when the government sent me an AR-15 in the mail,” the QAnon conspiracy theory-endorsing lawmaker wrote this week.
Critics were horrified by the post, which came following Monday’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, in Boebert’s own state, in which a man armed with an assault rifle killed 10 people.
Boebert was accused of trying to make political capital from the killings after she sent fundraising emails with the subject line “I told Beto ‘HELL NO’ to taking our guns.”
