(RightIsRight.co) – During a congressional hearing on Wednesday in the United States House of Representatives, ultra-leftist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) slammed a series of red states, blaming them for mass shootings and other gun-related violence.
However, she did not blame New York state or New York City, which have as much gun-related violence as any other city and state and is where the recent massacre at a grocery store took place just a few weeks ago.
You can watch a video of Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks further down this post.
As the Daily News reports in “AOC blames big city gun violence on lax laws in red states”:
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez says lax gun laws in the southern states of the ‘Iron Pipeline’ that run along the I-95 corridor of the East Coat are the cause of gun violence in New York.
“‘Let’s talk facts. Seventy percent of illegally trafficked guns in NYC come from [red states with few gun restrictions],’ she said. ‘We’re losing children due to lawlessness unleashed by red states.’” [emphasis added]
She went further:
“The New York progressive Democrat hit back hard at the Republican talking point that the real gun violence problem is in blue cities like New York and Chicago.
“‘This is not normal,’ Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday. ‘This is about blood money.’” [emphasis added]
One observer at the hearing commented about AOC’s statements, “She blamed everyone but the criminals in New York who pull the trigger and kill people.”
