Christmas pictures of GOP members with guns draws criticism from AOC, Archbishop of Canterbury and more


Recently, Republicans have been posting Christmas pictures of their entire family including children holding guns. These pictures, posted days after a troubled teen Ethan Crumbley shot students at Oxford High School, in Michigan, has drawn a lot of criticism from a diverse group of people.

The most recent picture with guns was uploaded by Republican Lauren Boebert, on Wednesday. She posted an image of herself and her four children. All her children were carrying semi-automatic rifles. All five of them were standing in front of a Christmas tree.

Many people including Piers Morgan, Cenk Uygur, Bruno,Amato and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the photo. Ocasio-Cortez asked Boebert to tell her where Christ had said, “use the commemoration of my birth to flex violent weapons for political gain”?

The New York rep. added that she laughed out aloud (lol) at all the years the Republicans had “spent on cultural hysteria of society ‘erasing Christmas and it’s meaning’”. She said that they were doing that “fine all on their own.”

Her photo was a response to Rep. Thomas Massie. Four days after the horrific shooting that took place at the Oxford High School in Michigan, Massie posted a photo of him and his family. All of them were holding rifles in front of a Christmas tree. He also added a caption: “Merry Christmas! Ps. Santa, please bring ammo.”

Boebert replied to this tweet by posting her own family photo with her children carrying rifles and posting in front of their Christmas tree and her caption on the tweet said: “The Boeberts have your six, Rep. Thomas Massie. No spare ammo for you though.”

The Archbishop of Canterbury, U.K. said that he was “sickened” by the photo posted by Massie. He tweeted that many of them were sickened to see a Christmas photo of a family posing with guns. He also said that “the message of the angels at Christmas is peace on earth and goodwill to all people. It has nothing to do with the US gun rights debate.”
