US politician is seriously claiming that Jesus could have stopped his crucifixion if he had an AR-15

Approximately 700 people have been killed in gun crimes since the Texas mass shooting

A Christian politician in the US has completely missed the irony after suggesting that Jesus would've survived his crucifixion if he was armed with a gun.

Attending the Charis Christian Centre in Colorado Springs on Saturday, June 11, American lawmaker and Republican congresswoman Lauren Boebert addressed the use of semi-automatic weapons.

"They like to say, 'Ah, Jesus didn't need an AR-15! How many AR-15s do you think Jesus woulda had?'" she said, dubbing those individuals as "little Twitter trolls."

Boebert added: "Well, he didn't have enough to keep his government from killing him, so…"

Supposedly missing the irony, the crowd laughed.

The lawmaker continued to suggest she had been praying for the death of US President Joe Biden.

"I do want you to know I pray for our president," the 35-year-old said. "Psalm 109:8 says, 'May his days be few and another take his office'."

Boebert has been trending on Twitter ever since activist group American Muckrakers PAC alleged that the congresswoman has a history of sex work and numerous abortions. While the left is not slamming the Boebert for the alleged acts, they have branded her a "hypocrite."

"According to our investigation, Boebert was hired by a wealthy male client in Aspen, Colorado, who was a Koch family member. Boebert's rich client subsequently introduced her to U.S. Senator [Ted] Cruz to run for political office," a press release from the PAC read.

The group also claims that she received $136,250 from senator Ted Cruz for her campaign while failing to disclose $70,500, reports Newsweek.
