She’s completely lost her mind.
According to The Daily Wire, freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the National Rifle Association (NRA) for attempted assassinations on two police officers in New York City.
“Twice in 12 hours, a single gunman terrorized the New York Police Department, firing upon and wounding uniformed officers stationed in the Bronx in separate attacks that officials have condemned as assassination attempts,” The Washington Post reported. “One officer was shot in the neck and chin Saturday night when the suspected gunman fired several rounds into a marked police van and then fled, authorities said. At 7 a.m. Sunday morning, police say, the same man walked into the Bronx precinct headquarters and opened fire again, striking a lieutenant in the arm and surrendering after his 9mm handgun ran out of bullets.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded to the news by tweeting, “This is not my district, but our thoughts are with all officers & people impacted by this shooting & the epidemic of gun violence in this country. Perhaps you would get less mixed up if McConnell stood up to the NRA & passed common-sense gun safety measures to reduce shootings.”
Former NFL player and current Republican congressional candidate Burgess Owens then slammed Ocasio-Cortez, writing, “Maybe this isn’t the perfect timing to remind us how clueless you are when it comes to gun laws. Maybe you’re not aware of how strict NY gun laws are, or maybe you’re just trying your best to capitalize on a tragedy and use it for talking points. Disgusting.”
