WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDVR)– A message posted on Twitter by Colorado Congressman Ken Buck is gaining major blowback.

“I have just one message for Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke, if you want to take everyone’s AR-15s, why don’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one?” shared Congressman Buck on Twitter Friday morning.

One person commented, ” Listen up, “Buck”. Threatening civilians with your “poor phallic substitute” AR-15 is exactly why no civilian should have one. Even if it is bedazzled and looks like something even Liberace would say “Honey, that’s just gaudy, even for me.”

Another said, ” Are you threatening to actually shoot someone? VP Biden & Beto O’Rourke – And we know if you shoot someone with that weapon they die – because that’s what it was designed to do – to be a lightweight deadly military weapon. An AR- 15 has no useful purposeful but to kill people. “

This tweet comes days after Denver Councilwoman Candi Cdebaca reposted a tweet that said, “For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.” Cdebaca responded by tweeting, “#Solidarity Yaaaas!!”
