People on Twitter noticed that something was a little different during a Newsmax segment featuring Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert this Wednesday when a previous display of assault weapons stacked on shelves behind her were nowhere to be found.
Newsmax interviewed Boebert regarding the renewed push for gun control laws in the wake of the shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, that left 10 people dead. In a video that gained attention last month during a virtual House hearing, large firearms were prominently displayed behind her as she debated whether to ban lawmakers from bringing guns to committee meetings.
But this Wednesday when she appeared on the pro-Trump network under the shadow of yet another mass shooting in America, she apparently felt the display would be slightly awkward.
There are no gun laws that would’ve stopped Ahmad Al-Issa from killing ten Americans in cold blood.

Her timing wasn’t lost on many of her critics on Twitter.
You moved your slaughter weapon decorations. Also, you’re wrong. A law prohibiting him from buying an AR-15 would have stopped him from obtaining one last week. Love that you use his name, though, you didn’t use Atlanta shooter’s name. Wonder why?

What happened to the assault weapon shrine, Shooty McCriminal?

Didn’t she move them upstairs to keep them away from @JoeBiden ?
