At around 2:30a.m. on Tuesday, a Houston woman stopped two men who were attempting to rob her as she pulled her firearm on the two assailants, firing at least two shots.

The woman, Lachelle Hudgins, said: “I saved my life.”

Congressman Dan Crenshaw took to Twitter and picked up the story, highlighting the essential nature of the Second Amendment and the right to self-defense. Crenshaw noted that gun control and policies like universal background checks would criminalize law abiding gun owners.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t let the point go uncontended, but instead of making an argument, Cortez accused Crenshaw of having friends who “have likely abused their spouse or have a violent criminal record.” What?!

Crenshaw and other conservatives on twitter were shocked by the insinuation. “You think my friends are domestic abusers/criminals? Seriously that’s your argument?”

Liberals can be so out of touch with the everyday American that they can’t imagine another perspective or experience other than their own, and AOC’s latest tirade here perfectly highlights the bubble that she lives in.

AOC wasn’t finished with Crenshaw, but Stephen Gutowski of The Washington Free Beacon had something to say, affirming the legitimacy of Crenshaw’s position.

This exchange exposes the Left’s obsession with controlling law-abiding gun owners. Law abiding gun owners can’t just be just that anymore. The Left insists that you go to your government approved babysitter, pay them a fee, and get their cushy seal of approval before lending a firearm to a friend (who we assume is NOT a domestic abuser/felon because normal people don’t do that).

Let fully grown adults be fully grown adults, and leave them alone.
