Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez likes to put up a big fight as long as she’s the one running her mouth. As soon as the tables turn, she gets upset. It’s typical snowflake behavior and she’s made the headlines continuously because of getting her feelings hurt.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) posted a video of her running away from them broadcasting while she was shouting about “white supremacy.” Now, she’s attacking them for releasing the video. Truth hurts, and she doesn’t want anyone to know the real truth about her.
The video that the NRA took was posted on Twitter to say that “The Squad” is coming for everyone’s guns. The video showed one of the representatives from the NRA questioning AOC as well as others on The Squad, including Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar. The questions were all centered around their support for gun control.
Omar stopped to talk. However, the other three congresswomen couldn’t be bothered to act in a civil manner about the Second Amendment and basic questions regarding firearms. They yelled at, ignored, and finally hid from the broadcast team.
The NRA wrote that the congresswomen called us white supremacists, terrorists, and mass murderers. They also tweeted to call for sending a clear message: “they will never take our guns.”
AOC, who can’t handle the heat as soon as she steps into the kitchen, asked the NRA to release the full video. She also took a shot below the belt of “Aren’t y’all broke?” regarding their recent financial issues.
There’s been a lot of back and forth between The Squad and the NRA as Congress continues to establish gun control legislation.
The videos don’t paint AOC in a good light. Releasing them in full isn’t going to change any of that. The video clearly shows the NRA spokesperson approaching AOC and asking her if they can explain what an assault rifle is since there is no technical definition of such a weapon. She responds with another question, which is typical of her because she doesn’t like to answer anything. She asks, “Can you tell me about the ‘assault weapons’ that killed and targeted Latinos that you all are contributing to an environment of hate on?” Rather than stick around to have an intelligent conversation, she asks the question and says, “Thank you. Bye” and walks away. This doesn’t allow for any back and forth because that’s the way that AOC likes it. If she actually has to have a back and forth with anyone, it comes across as completely uneducated. She proves that she doesn’t know what she’s talking about and she doesn’t research anything. She’s made up facts time and again on the spot to suit her agenda.
The gun control issues are constantly going back and forth as the Democrats want to see more gun control than the Republicans do. The biggest problem is that the Democrats are fine with taking away Second Amendment rights. They fail to understand that law-abiding citizens should have the right to hold onto their weapons because they haven’t done anything wrong. Gun laws are no different than the laws that prevent murder. If people are willing to commit mass murders, they clearly have no regard for the law. As such, gun laws aren’t going to slow them down.
What the Republicans are calling for are more red flag laws that allow guns to be taken away from people who are identified as being a danger to themselves or to others. Further, they want to have stricter background checks as well as focus more heavily on mental illness.
As for the Dems, they simply want to take everyone’s guns. Beto O’Rourke, one of the presidential candidates, has even gone on record for saying that he’s coming for everyone’s guns.
The Squad can’t even get their facts right. Ilhan Omar told the NRA representative that no one wants to take away people’s guns if they want to go hunting or if they want to exercise their Second Amendment rights. However, wouldn’t that defeat every argument? People could own all of the “assault-style” weapons they wanted and simply say it is for hunting or so that they can exercise their Second Amendment right. At that point, why change gun legislation at all if that’s all it would take for people to hold onto all of the guns that they have?
Until AOC is ready to do hard research and have a conversation that involves going back and forth with people who have opposing views on gun control, she shouldn’t get upset about anything.
