Ocasio-Cortez, other Democrats squeeze big banks on guns, immigration, climate

Mon, 03/25/2019 - 12:07

There It Is...Ocasio-Cortez Pushes For A Gun Ban

Mon, 03/25/2019 - 11:34
The New Zealand shooting, which left 50 people dead, is already being weaponized by the Left to pursue yet another wave of anti-gun activism. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government virtually banned semi-automatic rifles, so of course, Democrats over here were oozing with all the feelings over that. Sen. Bernie Sanders was all over it almost immediately after news of the ban was reported. There is no wiggle room in Kiwi land, folks. It’s a gun confiscation program. No grandfather clause, or anything, if you own a so-called “military-style” assault rifle (liberal speak for a scary gun), you need to turn them over. It’s trash, but it’s also a good reminder for why we have a Second Amendment to our constitution. There are some in the media who say that no one has called for a gun ban. That’s patently false. The newest to voice their gun grabbing feelings is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
