“Liberals keep saying it’s easier to buy a gun than it is to vote, but I don’t seem to remember when the government sent me an AR-15 in the mail,” the QAnon conspiracy theory-endorsing lawmaker wrote this week.
Liberals keep saying it’s easier to buy a gun than it is to vote, but I don’t seem to remember when the government sent me an AR-15 in the mail.

Critics were horrified by the post, which came following Monday’s deadly mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, in Boebert’s own state, in which 10 people were killed.
There are no restrictions on me walking into a Virginia gun show, and buying an AR-15 and ammo, same day. To register to vote, I have to fill out forms, provide identification/proof of citizenship, etc. States only send ballots to registered voters at their registration address

This Onion tweet is hilarious!
Thank goodness “Lauren Boebert” isn’t a real person. Because nobody could be that stupid, right?

You can actually buy gun parts in the mail and assemble them but hey, why let reality get in the way of lib owning?

Get back to me when you have the statistics on deaths caused by mail-in ballots.

And I don’t remember anyone complaining they had to drive 3 hours and THEN stand in line for 12 hours to buy an AR-15 so looks like you’re wrong again.

A paper ballot you receive in your mailbox cannot be used to kill a dozen people in under a minute.
It would be fun to debate these hot topics with you if you had even the slightest bit cognitive ability.
But alas, it’s like arguing with a rock. 🙄

Every time I think “she can’t be that dumb” you come out and say something like this.
You can’t vote on the same day you register in GA – but you can get a gun.
Now that I think about it, the GA and CO shooters both purchased theirs gun within days of the murders.

Our military has been voting by mail since the Civil War. So, if you have a problem with vote by mail, that’s a you problem. We the people prefer democracy. No one needs an AR-15. We need the right to vote. https://t.co/FP4kbbbUpj

you don’t remember a lot. 10 people from your state lost their lives yesterday, and before they are buried you are standing up for the gun lobby.

You’re REALLY bad at this.
But, using your logic: I don’t remember the last time a vote shot me while I was at the grocery store.

I owe you an apology. Here I kept thinking you weren’t good at anything. But you are amazing at false equivalence.
