AOC Concerned Gun-Control Bill Fails to Address ‘Misogyny and White Supremacy’

Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has raised concerns that recent gun control efforts in the Senate fail to address “misogyny and white supremacy.”

Last weekend, a bipartisan group of senators actually agreed on a framework for a gun reform bill.

However, radical leftist AOC still isn’t pleased.

The proposed framework includes funding for “red flag” laws, enhanced school safety measures, and mental health services.

It also expands background checks into juvenile records for gun purchases and increases gun-related criminalization.

However, AOC has taken issue with the measures for gun-related criminalization.

According to the socialist lawmaker, the “focus on increased criminalization and juvenile criminalization, instead of having the focus on guns” is “racist.”

The mental health angle is also racist, apparently, because “what people are blaming on mental health are really deeper issues of violent misogyny and white supremacy.”

Journalist Eric Michael Garcia tweeted:

“AOC tells me she is worried about the criminalization in the gun framework: ‘particularly, the juvenile criminalization, the expansion of background checks into juvenile records, I want to explore the implications of that and how specifically i’s [sic] designed and tailored. After columbine, we hired thousands of police officers into schools and while it didn’t prevent many of the mass shootings that we’ve seen now, it has increased the criminalization of teens in communities like mine.’”

“When I asked if she was worried if the mental health aspects would increase stigmatization, she said ‘absolutely. Because what people are blaming on mental health are really deeper issues of violent misogyny and white supremacy,'” Garcia added.
