Seemingly there weren’t enough guns in the news this 7 days for Rep. Thomas Massie, a Kentucky Republican who gleefully posted a loved ones Xmas photo to Twitter on Saturday afternoon. In it, the congressman and 6 family members members are each and every carrying a military-type weapon within the residence, where they are gathered in front of a beribboned Xmas tree.

Massie’s spouse, Rhonda, also appears to be pointing her weapon toward the left side of a male grinning in the qualifications.

This questionable display of judgment comes 4 times right after a college shooting in southeast Michigan remaining four college students dead and wounded seven others ― some severely. The suspected shooter was billed with murder and terrorism this 7 days for equally the lives he took and the life he scarred his dad and mom were being also charged in link with the incident.

Just after a short manhunt, the mom and dad were being situated early Saturday morning and joined their son in jail.

The incident brought on a wave of faculty closures across the condition of Michigan, as mom and dad and administrators concerned about copycat shooters.

But not only does the Massie family’s holiday getaway portrait lack style ― it also lacks originality.

The thought of a public determine sending out a greatly-armed Xmas photograph evidently staged to “trigger the libs” on social media dates again at the very least to 2015, when Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R) despatched out a remarkably very similar picture.
