On Friday, the Colorado congresswoman continued her streak of looking ridiculous on the social media platform by offering a different take from the usual “thoughts and prayers” after Thursday’s mass shooting in Indianapolis: “Mass shootings are illegal.”
Mass shootings are illegal.

Yes, of course mass shootings are illegal. But as anyone who might have followed the news over the last few decades might notice, the illegality of mass shootings hasn’t deterred them.
In addition, certain Second Amendment hard-liners like Boebert are unwilling to consider policies that could reduce gun violence.
Not surprisingly, many Twitter users weren’t impressed by the congresswoman’s simplistic tweet.
No shit. Now start enacting real policy so Americans don’t need to live in fear as over 120 of these tragedies unfold in 4 months. https://t.co/89jE93OPlS

Let’s just set the table with this: Ghouls like whatshername here aren’t protecting robust 2A rights. They’re protecting mass shootings, and they’re doing it because they like them. They get off on all the bloodshed and horror and they get angry when people threaten their kink https://t.co/O6kR6sPQjs

But Boebert didn’t get dragged just for stating the obvious without offering solutions.
Many users criticized Boebert and fellow first-term Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for being the only two House members to vote against a bill that would reauthorize the National Marrow Donor Program, according to RawStory.
In addition, Boebert has self-owned numerous times in the past few weeks, which you can see in the links below.
