Amid rambling incoherence, USA Today columnist Carli Pierson tries to blame “people like Rep. Lauren Boebert” for “the gun violence and trauma we are constantly cycling through as a nation.” It’s an embarrassment to the publication and the kind of rant I would normally ignore.
Unfortunately, Pierson also wants to drag the Founding Fathers into this—as if they would share her views on gun control and so-called “necessary changes” to our laws.
Rep. Boebert is being singled out, along with Rep. Thomas Massie, because they both recently posted Christmas photos of their families posing with an array of firearms. Some found the photos charming, while others were predictably appalled.
Pierson rages that these U.S. Representatives—along with “people like” them—“are the problem” in our nation.
