Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) somehow tried to make the latest attack at the U.S. Capitol about AR-15s and she received a lot of ridicule and mockery from social media in exchange.
The heinous attack at the Capitol on Friday was perpetrated by a suspect who was a supporter of the Nation of Islam who used a car to ram into Capitol police officers and then threatened other officers with a knife. He was shot and killed by other officers.
Despite the only gun in the incident being used to kill the assailant, Omar tried to shoehorn a gun control narrative into the lethal attack. . .
Heartbroken to learn another CP was killed while protecting the Capitol. My thoughts and prayers go out to the officer’s family and the entire Capitol Police force. The death toll would have been worse if the assailant had an AR-15 instead of a knife.

Omar’s tweet received backlash from many online, including Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy.
@Ilhan Truly despicable of you to capitalize on the heartbreak and grief of a fallen officer's family to promote your political narrative. Officer Evans and his family deserve better from a sitting member of Congress.#akgov

This is the same woman who said "some people did something" when talking about 9/11
Not surprised in the slightest that this detestable woman is using tragedy as an opportunity to advance a radical agenda. https://t.co/JA5XmcZztv
