Gun-obsessed Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) didn’t have a lot to say about the latest mass shooting ― but what she did say was so useless, Twitter users couldn’t help but notice.

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.”

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.

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.
