Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatened any Democrats who voted with the Republicans on the H-8 gun control bill. Ocasio-Cortez claimed she will put these Democrats on a list to be primaried if they voted with Republicans.
According to the Washington Post, Nancy Pelosi started off the closed-door meeting where she warned the moderates in the Democrat party, “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.”
The Post continued noting Ocasio-Cortez chimed in, “the unquestioned media superstar of the freshman class, upped the ante, admonishing the moderates and indicating she would help liberal activists unseat them in the 2020 election.”
Corbin Trent the Spokesman of Ocasio-Cortez’s stated that she was livid Democrats voting with Republicans “are putting themselves on a list. She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them.”
The issue Democrats had with the part of the Bill Republicans wanted was ICE should be notified if an illegal immigrant attempts to buy a gun. 26 Democrats voted with the Republicans to add the ICE notification to illegals attempting to buy a gun.
