Congressional Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, announced a proposal Wednesday to ban tear gas in the wake of police using the chemical crowd control agent on demonstrators protesting George Floyd’s death and police brutality. Reps. Mark Takano, D-Calif., Chuy Garcia, D-Ill., and Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., plan to introduce the Prohibiting Law Enforcement Use of Chemical Weapons Act in the House of Representatives on Thursday.
