The Daily Caller: Ocasio-Cortez Attacks Dan Crenshaw On Guns, Accuses His Friends Of Being Criminals
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, while trying to make a point about gun laws, appeared to accuse Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw of loaning guns to criminals.
Crenshaw had shared the story of a young woman who used a handgun to defend herself when five men reportedly attempted to rob her, adding, “Situations like this story are why we protect the 2nd Amendment.”
Crenshaw also noted that universal background checks could stand in the way of law-abiding citizens who just wanted to defend themselves. “Side note: With universal background checks, I wouldn’t be able to let my friends borrow my handgun when they travel alone like this. We would make felons out of people just for defending themselves,” he explained.
