Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is concerned that the Senate gun control bill doesn't go far enough to tackle "misogyny and white supremacy."

Last week, a bipartisan group of senators actually agreed on a framework for a gun reform bill.

However, AOC argues that it is "racist."

The proposed framework includes funding for "red flag" laws, enhanced school safety measures, and mental health services.

It also expands background checks into juvenile records for gun purchases and increased gun-related criminalization.

Ocasio-Cortez claims that the "focus on increased criminalization and juvenile criminalization, instead of having the focus on guns" is racist.

The mental health angle is also racist, apparently, because "what people are blaming on mental health are really deeper issues of violent misogyny and white supremacy."

Journalist Eric Michael Garcia said in a post on Twitter:

"AOC tells me she is worried about the criminalization in the gun framework."

According to Garcia, AOC said she is concerned "particularly, the juvenile criminalization, the expansion of background checks into juvenile records, I want to explore the implications of that and how specifically i’s [sic] designed and tailored.

"After Columbine, we hired thousands of police officers into schools and while it didn’t prevent many of the mass shootings that we’ve seen now, it has increased the criminalization of teens in communities like mine,” she added.

"When I asked if she was worried if the mental health aspects would increase stigmatization, she said 'absolutely,'" Garcia added.

"Because what people are blaming on mental health are really deeper issues of violent misogyny and white supremacy," AOC explained.
