Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Texas Senator Ted Cruz for tweeting about the tragic shooting in Uvalde, Texas, after being slated to speak at a National Rifle Association meeting in Houston this weekend.
Nineteen people – 18 of whom were children – were killed on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School. The tragedy is the deadliest shooting since Sandy Hook, which killed 27 in 2012.
Cruz tweeted that he and his wife were "fervently lifting up in prayer the children and families in the horrific shooting in Uvalde."
Ocasio-Cortez replied: "Aren't you slated to headline a speaking gig for the NRA in three days - in Houston, no less? You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead."
Okay, I'll give AOC some cred for having the guts to call out Cruz. But really, what good does that do?
You know, the Capital/US government was under siege from a violent threat just last year, and what has come of it? Our government, these individuals, right/left/over/under/blue/red/and neon pink were almost victims of violence last year. What have they done? Nothing.
If these government officials themselves are victimized, and the result is NOTHING, what does that tell us the ordinary citizens?
We are a gun-loving culture, and all of government (red/blue/purple/liberal/conservative/neither/both/and in between) are staying the course in protecting this gun-loving right to bear arms. That what it tells us. Sad, so very sad.
If you don't want guns in the hands of the citizenry, its time to move to another country.
