There isn’t a line that Ocasio-Cortez isn’t willing to cross.
Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called for banning all semi-automatic firearms on Thursday night after championing New Zealand’s radical new gun control measures, which includes government confiscation of nearly all semi-automatic firearms.
The 29-year-old congresswoman tweeted on Wednesday: “Sandy Hook happened 6 years ago and we can’t even get the Senate to hold a vote on universal background checks w/ #HR8. Christchurch happened, and within days New Zealand acted to get weapons of war out of the consumer market.”
Included in that tweet was a video of liberal New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announcing the new gun control laws.
“This is what leadership looks like,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Ardern specifically stated in that speech that the government was going to be confiscating firearms from law abiding citizens. Arden said:
In the meantime, we are asking all current holders of military-style semi-automatic weapons and assault rifles to visit www.police.govt.nz. There they will find details of the weapons included in this ban. In the next 48 hours, a form will be available on this site that we are asking these gun owners to complete, identifying what banned guns they hold. The police will then arrange for these weapons to be handed over, and eventually destroyed. Details of the weapons handed back by owners that are covered by the ban will also be taken to ensure that fair and reasonable compensation is paid once the buyback is in place. If owners are unable to complete the online form, they are able to contact the police on the phone to arrange the handover of these now-banned guns…
…As the legislation is developed, we will determine the time available for the return of military-style semi-automatic weapons and assault rifles, and the duration of the buyback scheme. I can assure people that there will be time for the returns to be made, and that they will not be criminalized overnight. After a reasonable period for returns, those who continue to possess these guns will be in contravention of the law. Currently, the penalties for this range from fines of up to $4,000 and or three years in prison. The draft legislation will look to increase these penalties.
On Thursday night, Ocasio-Cortez flat out called for banning all semi-automatic firearms, which would include handguns, and called for banning bump stocks and high capacity magazines.
“You know, instead of training children, teachers, houses of faith, & concertgoers to prep for being shot, we could just:
-Pass Universal Background checks (#HR8!) -Disarm domestic abusers -Mandate safe storage-Ban bump stocks, semiautos, & high cap mags designed to kill people,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
People with violent criminal records are already prohibited from owning and possessing firearms and bump stocks have already been banned.
The Hill’s Buck Sexton noted: “The problem with New Zealand mirroring the Australian approach to gun control is the Australian approach didn’t work and wasn’t needed. There are more guns in private hands in Australia now than before the 1996 ban *and* gun violence has simultaneously gone down for decades.”

This BIMBO has never had a thought of her. The complete lack of Historical understanding is blatant, i.e., the same approach the Nazi Party used in 1933. She should be in jail for campaign abuse, theft and some many ethics violations it is sad she is even given any press. If she thinks, in any way shape or form, I’m going to surrender any weapon, she has forgotten the most dangerous one of all, a cunning mind which has been trained by the United States Military.
No AOC this is what a Dictator like you looks like!! These second amendment rights in the constitution are our Rights you stupid Imbecile!! Have you ever READ the constitution!!?? It is there because of the government and corrupt politicians like you!!! Why are you trying to take the rights away from law abiding citizens EVERY Time there is a shooting in this Country!? you Corrupt Liberals always try to GUN GRAB!!! Why don’t you try going after the CRIMINALS that commit these Crimes!? You idiots don’t seem to realize that the Criminals do NOT Follow our laws! So trying to punish law abiding Citizens is NOT Going to work out too good for you! Moron! You just can’t seem to get around that pesky little thing called the second amendment!!! Can you!?!?
No, AOC! That is a dictatorship. We live in what is supposed to be a democratic republic where the people have rights which are supposed to be guaranteed by the government. Rights which are only to be changed if the voters want to change them, not by dictator politicians like you and the rest of the leftists.
The People of the Free World are allowing these “So Called” Politicians to Endanger them and their Families Lives, by not reminding them that:
1-They are not “Law Makers,” or “Leaders,” but were Elected to be the Representatives of the People!
2-If those Elected Can not or Will Not Represent those who Elected them, then they will be held
Accountable with Consequences!
Until this happens you will have these Islamic, Socialist “Useful Idiots,” continuously creating “Deception,” “False Flag Events,” “Harassment & Intimidation,” other tactics until they have achieve desired goals!
They are Illegal which means illegal, no full benefits unless they are fully legal citizen of the country specially if you will treat them and spoiling them like you spoiled a lot of citizens who are able to work but refuse to work, still get welfare checks. You steal the benefits of those who work hard and give our benefits who don’t deserve them. Not fair. If your just doing it for them to vote for you, non english speakers, ignorant about the history of what America stands for and made it great, we go bankrupt and these illegals will make us obligated to treat them like we are their slaves. NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow! I really can’t believe how dumb she is. You can’t take a small arm away from anyone. The 2nd Amendment tells us that. And take away guns from crooks? Is she for real? You can’t stop guns Ocasio-Cortez. Wake up. You’re in the real world now.
If she was born , helped to raise and educated in U S and still love socialism , she should be welcomed in Rusia or Cuba. China, I’m not sure.
Umm NOPE – ‘New Zealand’ didn’t act, the prime minister did afaik unilaterally and with absolutely no provision for grandfathering legally owned personal property and little (if any) compensation for that property. This is what TYRANNY looks like.
She is a older version of that nut case from florida.
AOC is beyond STUPID. IDIOT is another real term for her beyond belief view of any thinking human.
Way to go AOC! You have just bowed down to the Muslin terrioist plan to disarm the people every country,so they can take over and force sharia law,if that happens do you think they won’t come after you next?you will realize that you should have fought for freedom for all.
the second amendment was written by the founding fathers to protect us from dictatorship government like her ,that is the reason why we have arms in the first place to protect ourselves from idiot leftist like her and others. If she and other’s like her want to take our guns, then her and those of the same view can come and take them. Sheriff’s around the country made pledge not to enforce disarming the American people. So that leaves it up to you AOC. And all your other dimpshits.
The GOP’s obsession with this woman only makes her more well known and powerful.
F you you stupid bitc-!
This will never work right for a two simple reasons #1 crimmals will never give up theirs #2 if the people give theirs up than who will have all the guns and other weapons will be those in #1 and most important the GOVERMENT EMPOLYES (I.E. THE FBI,DEA,ATF ……AND THE MILITARY )
“This is what leadership looks like,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Hitler and Pol Pot had leadership too.
Ms. Occasional Kotex is a nut job.
Once again, AOC doesn’t know what she is talking about on any topic. On this topic, she doesn’t know the Constitution, our current laws, or what’s in proposed legislation.
I don’t know anyone who is against background checks. But if I’m buying five guns you don’t need 5 separate background checks on me. But that’s how they’ve written HR8.
Pull out all the poison pills and stupid. Give us a clean background check bill and let’s get on with it.
No, that’s what a spineless WORM looks like!
Boston University called; they want their dimploma back you idiot!
No, AOC! That is a dictatorship. You and all your little minions will NEVER take our Guns, semi-auto or single shot/bolt actions.
YOU will NOT violate our Constitution nor Bill of Rights!
Ge it through your little pea brain, IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!!
You, little girly, are TOO STUPID to “Be The Boss”.
You, little girly are WAY out of your league!
GIVE CORTEZ A BREAK…SHE IS ONLY 29 YEARS OLD AND STILL WET BEHIND THE EARS. SHE NEEDS ANOTHER 30 YEARS BEFORE SHE KNOWS ANYTHING.
Not even in office a year, and already wants to trash the constitution her oath of office requires her to protect, defend, and abide by. That to me should be adequate grounds for her removal from office.
AOC is an absolute raving maniac, and should be put out of office with her green and any other gibberish that pours out of her drooling ignorant mouth.
I can’t decide if AOC is part or full orangutan as seen on nature shows displaying their huge yellow teeth all the time. Maybe she is begging for a banana.
Some one needs to do a back ground check on AOC no way is she an American, she must be a socialist from venezuela trying to destroy the American constitution… if anything needs to be banned its her..
AOC needs to get a life and a brain! Who does she think she is. She will never take guns from law abiding citizens . Smell the roses you craZy. Try and come to Texas and take them! 😂 😂
