Radical Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for the confiscation of all semi-automatic firearms in America on Thursday in response to the New Zealand attack that Left 50 Muslims dead.
On Wednesday, the Socialist tweeted: “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.”
The tweet also showed New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announcing that there would be new gun control laws.
“This is what leadership looks like,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

This measure by Ardern is an extreme abuse of power considering she literally admitted that she would be ripping guns away from law abiding citizens:
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.

Ocasio-Cortez called for the all out ban of semi-automatic weapons in a tweet on Thursday night saying, “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.”

One little problem. Banning semi-automatic weapons would mean that almost every firearm in America would be banned and confiscated considering most firearms are semi-automatic.
Remember when the Left said “oh, we don’t want to take your guns! We just want common sense gun laws!”
Well it’s becoming clear that this saying was a flat-out lie considering Leftists like Ocasio-Cortez are basically calling for the abolishment of the Second Amendment.
If people like Ocasio-Cortez maintain power, you may as well say good-bye to your constitutional rights.
