AOC Uses Synagogue Shooting to Call for Universal Gun Registration

Published

on

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is immediately calling for gun control in the wake of the California synagogue shooting.

AOC demanded that the Senate act on gun control legislation right after Chabad shooting that left one person dead and several injured.

The freshman Congresswoman said, “Heartbroken to hear of the San Diego synagogue shooting, particularly so on this final day of Passover.”

She immediately shifted the conversation to gun control saying that “We have a responsibility to love + protect our neighbors. The longer the Senate delays holding a vote on #HR8, the more we put Americans at risk.”

HR 8 is a universal registration scheme which expands registration to include private transfers and creates a de facto ban on Americans aged 18 to 20 from obtaining handguns. BLP reported on its passage in February. The bill was approved on a Democratic party line vote, however, 8 House Republicans joined in supporting it.

HR 8 is the most expansive piece of gun control to pass a chamber of Congress since the Brady Act of 1993.

It will likely die in the Republican-controlled Senate.

However, the real threat for gun owners will be the bipartisan sponsored “red flag” gun confiscation bill that Senator Lindsey Graham is championing.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
