It’s no secret that all Democrat 2020 candidates for president want to erode your right to bear arms.
They want to pass stricter laws that will prevent you from buying and owning firearms. None of which, of course, will prevent criminals from hurting innocents. But one candidate went further than all the others last night. During the debate, he made it clear what he would do to strip you of your freedom.
Let’s get this out of the way first, I will not call Robert Francis O’Rourke “Beto.” That is a nickname he uses to pretend to be something he’s not. The white Irish liberal from Texas hopes he’ll trick enough people into thinking he’s Hispanic, so he can steal their vote. There, I said it.
But this man has little in common with the proud people of Texas. O’Rourke is embracing the worst left-wing policies the Democratic Party can conjure up. Pretty shocking, given the unprecedented success Texas is enjoying right now. The conservative values embraced by Texas Republicans has brought a booming economy to the Lone Star State.
Many Americans are fleeing liberal wastelands to live in Texas. Ironically, O’Rourke can’t see that. Maybe that’s why he lost his senate race to Ted Cruz (who, by the way, is a real Hispanic).
O’Rourke is struggling in the polls. He is having a hard time breaking from the pack of 20-odd liberal candidates. So, he decided to embrace a policy that will get him lots of attention, but will alienate millions of Americans (even liberals—though they don’t admit it).
During last night’s debate, when asked if he would confiscate Americans’ guns, he said, “Hell, yes.”
2020 Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke was asked whether he would confiscate American’s guns during the ABC News Democratic debate Thursday, and he answered, “hell yes.”
“I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity round, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers,” O’Rourke continued…
“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore,” the former Texas congressman said. [Source: Daily Caller]
O’Rourke proves once again he’s got no brains.
First off, all guns were made for the battlefield. You’ll have a hard time trying to find a gun—even a handgun like the 1911—that was never used in war. Even shotguns are a common weapon in warfare. Gun control nuts don’t understand this, because they don’t know a thing about guns.
A shot that “shreds everything inside of your body” includes buckshot—the kind of ammo used in hunting dear. Does O’Rourke want to ban hunting—something needed to prevent animal populations from getting out of control?
He says that “we’re not going to allow [your guns] to be used against a fellow American anymore.” That’s quite the claim, O’Rourke. Are you going to Chicago to confiscate the guns of all the inner city gangs?
Lots of Americans die thanks to criminals using illegally-acquired guns. Your precious gun laws didn’t stop that. Yet the liberal media never reports on gun violence in Chicago—which is often so bad it skews the national average.
AK-47’s, the fully auto kind, cannot be easily purchased by an American. AR-15’s which look like a military gun, are just semi-automatic rifles. The vast majority of these weapons in America are not used “against a fellow American.” Only a fraction of a percent of people in this country are committing mass shootings.
Yet O’Rourke wants to punish all the rest. Why? Because he dreams of a day when Americans are defenseless, at the mercy of a corrupt government.
That he runs, of course.
And every last gun control Democrats dreams of the same day, too.
Too bad they’ll never get to see it.
