Paul on Wednesday shared this picture of himself on Twitter, writing: “Just looking at all the guns @joebiden is going to try to ban…”
Critics accused Paul of fearmongering over Biden’s bid to ban assault-style weapons, saying only a handful of the weapons on display would actually be prohibited.
Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg slammed Paul’s message in its entirety, tweeting: “God forbid someone like the 19 year old who shot 34 of my classmates and administrators killing 17 not be able to get an AR-15.”
Comedians Michael Ian Black and Samantha Bee also chimed in:
