Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert shared a photo with her four sons on Twitter. The kids were seen brandishing assault rifles sitting in front of a beautifully decorated Christmas tree on Tuesday, December 7. The family has been facing a lot of backlash from Twitter users.

Boebert shared the post three days after Kentucky Republican Congresswoman Thomas Massie faced intense slamming and backlash for sharing a similar photo on his social media. The photo with rifles was shared one week after four people were killed at a high school in Michigan allegedly by 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley whose parents are charged with involuntary manslaughter for giving him a gun to operate.

While sharing a picture with her kids, Boebert tweeted, "The Boeberts have your six, @RepThomasMassie! (No spare ammo for you, though)" Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke expressed his wrath over the photo shared by Boebert. He wrote, "This is sickness. Any semblance of American decency is being ground not hamburger by people like Boebert. Do not lose your ability to be appalled. And do not underestimate the power of such poison."

A professor at the Yale School of Management and former staffer of US Senate, Howard Forman said that Boebert and Massie appear to be competing with each other and show the world that gun fetishism is alive and well; that exploiting your children to advance your career is ok; and teenagers that died last week are long forgotten."

One Twitter user wrote, "Always nice to make gun porn a family affair for the holidays... just like Jesus would want."

One user demanded that Boebert should be removed from the office and wrote, "Raise your hand if you think that Lauren Boebert should be removed from office immediately. I really don’t believe that Christ would approve of this."

People are angry with Boebert's post and are asking her to focus on legislation and governing rather than trying to act like a social media influencer. One of the users wrote, "Why not focus on legislating or governing? You're a member of Congress, right? This is acting more like a social media influencer." Another user wrote, "So you're saying they'd shoot me in the back with zero hesitation. Great message from a family who worships a God of Peace."

Some users have also pointed out that she has broken the law yet again. She wrote, "Lauren breaks the law yet again. Colorado Revised Statute 18-12-108.7 providing a firearm to a juvenile. In Colorado, it is generally a crime to sell, give or lend a gun to someone under the age of 18. But I don't expect Lauren to follow laws."
