Rep. Lauren Boebert is stirring new controversy after posting a family Christmas picture to Twitter on Tuesday.
The photo features the congresswoman standing in front of a Christmas tree with her four boys, who appear to be holding rifles.
“The Boeberts have your six,” Rep. Boebert captioned the photo. “(No spare ammo for you, though.)”

Without surprise, Boebert’s photo immediately triggered negative reactions from the Left, such as this response from Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
When you pose in front of a Christmas Tree and can name all those guns but can’t name the gifts of the Wise Men 🥴🥴🥴

Other Twitter users made humor out of the outrage drawn from Boebert’s photo, as seen here by former Trump surrogate Steve Cortes:
This pic caused a lot of controversy, which I totally understand, especially regarding the well-being of children.
That young man has a Packers hoodie on, and it’s a true tragedy. Go Bears! https://t.co/nZE4EC8pjG
