Pro-QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Tuesday attacked gun safety laws as ineffective in the wake of the mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado that left 10 people dead.
"Colorado has everything the left has asked for," Greene wrote on Twitter. "And it still didn't stop a thug like Ahmad Al-Issa from murdering Americans."
Many of Greene's followers noted that she was wrong about Colorado's gun laws, as one noted that it's possible to buy a handgun in Colorado without a permit, contrary to Greene's claims.
Additionally, some of her followers noticed that she jumped to name the shooter when he had a foreign-sounding name but didn't mention any of the many white mass shooters that have killed Americans over the last year.
Check out some replies to Greene below.
So the man with a Muslim sounding name who killed 10 people is a thug but the white guy who killed 8 people last week is just a guy who had a bad day.

She didn't say a damn word until she saw it. Had to make sure it wasn't one of her people.

Notice anything about Marj ? She's quicker to defend the gun, than she is to feel any human compassion for the victims.

Of course, no legislation will stop all gun tragedies from happening, but they CAN reduce the number of deaths.

Seems like you're suggesting the gun control laws the Dems are pushing don't go far enough.

Colorado is also an open carry state. And Colorado continues to expand its history of mass shootings. So don't hand me any bullshit...
