Ocasio-Cortez hits NRA after New Zealand shooting

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday tore into the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the wake of the shooting attack at two New Zealand mosques. Ocasio-Cortez condemned the attack on Twitter, focusing her message on the American gun group. She commented on New Zealand’s PM Jacinda Ardern offering her ’thoughts’ to the victims, mentioning other houses of worship affected by mass shootings.

What does the NRA have to do with New Zealand?

Honestly, can she get any stupider? Just when you think you’ve seen it all, AoC manages yet another “hold my beer” episode of stupid

Bombs are deadlier than guns, but all the brainwashing in American media makes people irrationally afraid of guns. Ironically the first mosque was saved by a guy with a gun who shot back. Dipshit utopians would prefer him disarmed and dead. The NRA has the moral high ground over folks like AOC but she doesn't listen to anyone outside her bubble laughing at her. Pro-tip: black markets exist, and they aren't going anywhere. To think you can stop criminals from getting guns is as dumb as thinking you can win the war on drugs.

"what good are your thoughts and prayers" let's see if she's says that after the next Islamic terrorist attack.

I’m sorry but if somebody other than the shooter was armed the entire out come of the shooting would have been entirely different.

There are over 40k deaths per yer due to motor vehicles n American roads. When are we going to enact reasonable vehicle control and limit cars to those over 21 yrs of age, limit speed limits to 25 miles per hour, make it a crime if your vehicle is stolen and used in the process of another crime.

I honestly don’t know if she’s aware the NRA has no impact in New Zealand and that a Muslim man in the second mosque saved lives after firing back at the shooter. A gun, like any tool, doesn’t have the ability to do anything. It is how people use these tools that kill. Yes bad people kill using guns, but they can kill with anything if they put their mind to it. That being said, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do anything. We should work towards preventing bad people access to guns without restricting good peoples right to bear arms.

Why is this considered newsworthy? Stop giving AOC attention. We get it. Her eyes are annoying and you hate her opinions. Move on. This isn’t news. Not even close.

If this were to happen in East Texas, that man would’ve taken several .357magnum rounds to the chest before he could aim. Certain Texans carry religiously.

Irony is that she and the NZ prime minister are very similar in ideology and ability.

Of course she's going to say something like that. Of course the leftist leadership is going to let her. Here's a thought. By allowing her to spout her extremism, moderates who then step in once she's put her foot in her mouth deep enough to warrant being politically neutralized will seem reasonable England accommodating even though what they're really doing is still firmly moving standard to the left of center. It's clever, really.

That was part of the shooters’ manifesto—get Americans arguing about guns. He said he could’ve used all kinds of weapons (and in highly gun controlled NZ too). But he wanted to ignite things in the US also. He also described himself as a communist. Hmmmm.

So is she in on the plot? Seems like she's going straight for it. Not that one wouldn't expect it. Just look in to those soulless eyes. 😂
