Jeb Bush Tweets Image Of Gun With His Name On It. Because America. (Updated)

Should we be concerned about his state of mind?

This tweet, just awhile ago:

Jeb(!?) apparently gave a speech at FN America, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Belgian firearms manufacturer FN Herstal, SA.

So...a Republican candidate who is lagging in the polls visits an American subsidiary of a Belgian gun manufacturer, and tweets a picture of a gun with his name on it and the word "America."

The replies are, um...interesting.

This could only happen in the Republican party.

Update:

It turns out that company also made guns for the Nazis in World War II. 'Murica.

During World War II, the company was requisitioned by the Nazi military and its factories

produced thousands of weapons for Axis troops, including pistols carried by Nazi officers and pilots. One model, the Browning-designed Hi-Power, was used by both the Allies and Axis powers during the war, with FN factories manufacturing a version of the popular handgun for the German military.

Update 2:

Senator Chris Murphy had something to say:
