The following five Democrats voted against the bill:

Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas

Rep. Jared Golden, D-Maine

Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, D-Texas

Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Oreg.

Rep. Ron Kind, D-Wisc

All seven Representatives broke with typical party lines, the outlet reports.

“Today, our Democratic Majority will take up and pass the Assault Weapons Ban legislation: a crucial step in our ongoing fight against the deadly epidemic of gun violence in our nation,” Pelosi said, according to CNN.

“Today, House Democrats acted by unifying to pass an assault weapons ban to keep weapons of war off our streets, save lives in this country, and reduce crime in our communities,” Biden commented. “The Senate should move quickly to get this bill to my desk, and I will not stop fighting until it does.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that the U.S. Capitol riot last January was a “trial run” and that Congress could come under attack again if Republicans regain a majority.

“If we lose the House, this is no joke — January 6 was a trial run, and a lot of people don’t seem to understand that,” the New York Democrat said at a town hall in Queens on Wednesday.

“It was a trial run, and they’re going to come back if they win the House,” she continued. “The only reason it wasn’t worse is that Democrats had the House, and they didn’t have the votes.”

“If they take the House, then they have the votes not to authorize and legitimize the presidential election, whatever the results are. So this is very serious,” added Ocasio-Cortez.

The truth is AOC is trying to scare Democrats to go vote during the 2022 mid-term elections. Democrats know it isn’t looking good for their party. AOC’s newest claim is just desperate.
