MELBOURNE, FL – In response to the shooting that occurred on Tuesday, March 22nd, at the King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, the Colorado chapter of the Republican Liberty Caucus posted a statement on Facebook that implied recent shootings were part of a “Marxist Party” plot to enact stricter gun laws.
This statement from the Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado does not represent the views of the Republican Liberty Caucus. The Republican Liberty Caucus Board of Directors disagrees with this statement and disavows it.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those killed by the shooter. We condemn the heinous actions of the killer and hope justice is served swiftly.

The post was not approved or sanctioned by the leadership of the RLC of Colorado. The RLCCO State Chair has removed both the post and the individual’s access to the page.
