Following the tragic shooting attack at a California synagogue on Saturday, radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) used the horrific incident to promote a gun control bill.

Shortly after news broke about the shooting at the Chabad of Poway synagogue near San Diego, that left one person dead and several injured, Ocasio-Cortez demanded that the Senate acts on anti-gun legislation.

One suspect is now reportedly in custody, who police described as a 19-year-old male.

“Heartbroken to hear of the San Diego synagogue shooting, particularly so on this final day of Passover,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter before turning her attention to gun control.

“We have a responsibility to love + protect our neighbors,” she declared.

“The longer the Senate delays holding a vote on #HR8, the more we put Americans at risk.”

According to the Daily Caller, the legislation expands federal background checks to include private transfers and could effectively ban Americans ages 18 to 20 from acquiring handguns.

The Democratically controlled House passed HR8 in February.

California, where the shooting took place, recently tightened statewide gun laws.

Legislation that took effect in January raised the age for purchasing a long gun from 18 to 21.

A federal judge in March struck down a law banning firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

Although AOC is typically very vocal in the wake of tragedies, she was unusually silent following the bombing attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday that left hundreds of Christian worshippers dead.

While many on the left have avoided referring to the victims as Christians in their condolences - instead, calling them "Easter worshippers" - radical Democratic socialist Ocasio-Cortez said nothing at all about the bombings.

In March, following the Christchurch mosque attacks, however, AOC rushed to politicize the tragedy.

Posting heavily on her Twitter account, the New York lawmaker used the shooting attack against Muslims as a springboard to push her radical anti-gun agenda in the United States.
