Jeb Bush Shredded Online After Weird Gun Tweet

Jeb Bush is running far behind in every Republican party poll for the presidency, and it seems he's getting a bit desperate in his chase for votes.

Jeb's ill-advised photo comes just days after more bizarre gun Tweets from manufacturer Glock. Because, who wouldn't want to get a cardboard heart box filled with bullets for Valentine's Day?

Sorry Jeb. Looks like this one was a backfire.
