On Saturday, Republican Rep. Thomas Massie, of Kentucky, shared a bizarre “Christmas” photo of himself and his family grinning widely as they all carried rifles, with a sick message saying: “Santa, please bring more ammo.”
“Merry Christmas!” Massie wrote in his tweet, which gleefully featured a Christmas tree and present emojis alongside the display of of the family arsenal.
As noted by The Daily Beast, the deranged Christmas photo comes just days after Ethan Crumbley, a 15-year-old student at Oxford High School in Michigan, opened fire on his classmates with the same gun his father had purchased days before on Black Friday.

KY Rep Thomas Massie has an M60 Machine gun? Are you kidding me?? I carried the “Pig” when I was enlisted and during my first tour in Iraq we had a few of these on our vehicles. NO CIVILIAN should ever own a weapon like this. In the wrong hands, it would be catastrophic! pic.twitter.com/mfq32f3XD1
